Mouse Trap is short number 10 out of 30 of The Amazing Colossal Adventures of WordGirl.


WordGirl and Captain Huggy Face confront Dr. Two Brains at his secret hideout. Dr. Two Brains proves that their attacks on him would be futile by capturing them in his giant mousetrap. Will they escape, or will Dr. Two Brains succeed in turning them into goop?


The short opens with Dr. Two-Brains in his lair, telling his henchmen to scowl as they pick up the cheese from City Hall, so they will appear more menacing. After the two men leave, Dr. Two-Brains begins to argue with himself as Professor Steven Boxleitner, his alter-ego, is trying to persuade the villain that what he is doing is wrong. Two-Brains refuses to listen to him, mockingly referring to him as a “goody-two shoes”, just as WordGirl comes crashing through the window. She hears Steven struggling against Two-Brains and encourages him to fight the battle within himself. But Two-Brains once again takes full control and traps WordGirl in a giant mousetrap. His henchmen let him know via walkie-talkie that they have gotten the cheese and are on their way back. Two-Brains tells WordGirl he is going to test out his new goop ray on her as soon as the cheese arrives. This ends the short episode on a cliffhanger note.
