The game, if I remember right (havenít played in decades) involved collecting the pieces as you moved around the board. Youíre building the contraption a bit at a time, and the winner is the one who is able to finally catch the mouse.

I do have the song from the commercial memorized though, I think. This is purely from memory so I probably got something wrong or always misheard it:

Turn the crank, hit the plank,
Kick the boot and down the chute.
Watch it roll, hit the pole,
In the tub a rub-a-dub.
Flip the man, in the pan, the trap is set,
Now drooooooooop the net.

I swear 90% of my brain storage is wasted memorizing commercial jingles and old sitcom theme songs. Itís a crazy hoarder.
