Chronology
Preceded by The Country Mouse and the City Mouse: A Christmas Tale

The Country Mouse and the City Mouse Adventures is a French-Canadian animated TV series co-produced by CINAR Films and France Animation, produced in association with Ravensburger Film & TV, WIC Entertainment, Reader's Digest (Series 1), TVOntario (Series 1), Videal (Series 1) and Motion Pictures, S.A. (Series 1), in co-production with Canal J and France 3. The series first aired in the United States on HBO in the United States from March 1, 1998 to October 27, 1999. The series then premiered in France on France 3 on March 27, 1998. This animated series was based on the book published by Random House in 1994, titled The Country Mouse and the City Mouse: Christmas Is Where the Heart Is, but the main characters were adapted for the Cinar series.

The show follows the adventures of two cousin mice, Alexander from the city and Emily from the country, who go on adventures around the world in the late 19th and early 20th century, usually to help their cousins, solve a mystery, or stop the evil rat, No-Tail No-Goodnik.

Main characters

  • Emily (voiced by Julie Burroughs) is an American female country mouse who is Alexander's cousin. She wears a red dress with a white apron on it and a straw hat with a red ribbon tied in a bow around it.
  • Alexander (voiced by Terrence Scammell) is a British-American male city mouse. He wears a blue suit and a matching hat with a red bowtie and is Emily's cousin.
  • No-Tail No-Goodnik (voiced by Rick Jones) is a rat thief. He goes to some countries and often uses fake tails when doing his duty like doing disguises.
