That was the name of the game. Object of the game was to trap the mouse, and this was done by building this weird and wondrous assembly of whatnots that included a basketlike mouse trap. It fell down a pole and trapped the plastic mouse, once the trap was assembled and triggered.

Another old game I had was Snakes Alive!. Sort of like Russian Roulette, with a spring-loaded snake in a basket. You took turns sticking your finger into holes in the basket, collecting 'rubies' everytime the snake didn't pop out. I believe my sister took all the plastic rubies to make costume jewelry, and we had to play the game with poker chips until the hinges on the basket finally broke.
