The show largely consists of Hei Mao kicking ass and taking names. Hei Mao is not unlike DirtyHarry, except that instead of being a cop who is committed to justice but not the rules, he's committed to justice in a world that ''has'' no rules. The other most frequent character seems to be known only as "[=OneEear=]", an evil mouse who lost his left ear during a police raid and wears a bandage on his head since then. The mice, on the whole, are thieving, evil, dirty and greedy.

The plot progression usually looks like this:

1. Mice commit crime. (Let's get drunk and steal some beets!)

2. Cats intervene ([[TheFrenchConnection All right, Popeye's here! get your hands on your heads, get off the bar, and get on the wall!]])

3. Mice Run Away ([[DidNotThinkThisThrough Not sure we thought this through.]])

4. Hei Mao Chases them down. (Let us board our flying motorcycles which we can afford thanks to fabulous one-party system and gumption.)

5. Those who resist get beaten with a club. (Which doubles as a taser.)

6. Those who flee get shot. (And there is always blood.)

7. Signature tune. ([[SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein Oh oh oh, something Hei Mao Jing Zhang, Thanks for protecting our forest, blah blah blah.]])

Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: During one episode, the police is called to investigate a murder. Once Hei Mao's crew arrive, they immediately isolate the crime scene, then carefully take pictures of the body and collect evidence before bagging the victim's remains and taking them to the police HQ to run a forensic analysis to determine the cause of death.

* CommissarCap: Hei Mao wears one, giving how he's in charge.



* CrazyConsumption: In one episode, an Hippo, a boar and an elephant raid a little village to eat their ... ''adobe bricks.'' ExtremeOmnivore to the extreme, yessir.



* ExtremeMeleeRevenge: During one episode, a big, brutal rat staged a successful attack against the police's H.Q and crowned it by ''biting the neck off'' of Hien Mao's Lieutenant, then nailing a taunting note to his corpse with a ''dagger.'' You can guess Hien Mao's reaction to this.

Added DiffLines:

* HelmetsAreHardlyHeroic: Averted by Hei Mao's men, as they always wear their safety helmets and their headgear actually protects them from harm. Played straight with Hei Mao, as he wears a cool CommissarCap instead.


Added DiffLines:

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Hei Mao is willing to take a few things on consideration before mauling or arresting someone. For example, in one episode a female praying mantis had killed and devoured her groom, and Hei Mao decided to let her go because he knew she wasn't evil and was only following her species' natural mating instincts.
