Little Mousers, also known as Squeeks or Squeaks, are a species of small, mice-like creatures who wear bandannas that obscure their faces. Judging from their English name, one would think that Little Mousers are relatives of Mouser of Super Mario Bros. 2. However, their Japanese name, チューさん chuu-san, defies that notion, which is why they have been renamed in later games.


Yoshi series[edit]

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island / Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3[edit]

The first appearance of Little Mousers was in Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, were they appeared infrequently as enemy creatures who would try to steal a Yoshi's egg and scurry away with it, into their burrows. Little Skull Mousers also appear - they are just like normal Mousers, except they wear skulls on their heads and cannot steal eggs.

Yoshi's New Island[edit]

Little Mousers, along with Little Skull Mousers, both under their original name, also appear in Yoshi's New Island. They act the same as their first appearance.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Little Mousers were renamed Squeeks and were shown to be one of the primary inhabitants of Rogueport and Rogueport Sewers; a white Squeek, known as Ms. Mowz also appears in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door as an optional partner of Mario.
