This animated action comedy is a parody of many mainstream film genres (crime movies, sci-fi, horror, disaster films) and it also refers to specific films, mainly the James Bond series. Featuring cats, mice, and rats in the main roles, the protagonist is an anthropomorphic mouse secret agent named Grabovsky, who is sent to the city of "Pokyo" to get the secret plan of a machine which could save the mouse civilization from the evil cats. The film has become a cult classic among Hungarian viewers.
