Hound Hoboes is a 1947 American animated short film produced by Michael Shires Productions and released by Republic Pictures, starring Matthew Mouse and Felix Fox.


Matthew and Felix get a job as dog catchers and spend the picture trying to catch one measly little dog.


Matthew and Felix decide to get a legitimate job as dog catchers. The problem is that Felix is afraid of even the tiny (and surprisingly fierce) dogs. Matthew tries dressing as a female dog to lure the dog to the truck; when that fails, he tries dressing both him and Junior in a giant cat suit. Then Junior tries a mouse trap baited with a hamburger from Matthew's lunch and catches Matthew ("a bad thing"). Finally, they dress as fireplugs and get far too much attention.
