This marked the third hip-hop release for the label. It was also released by Lex Records in the UK on October 17, 2005, with different cover art.

"The Mouse and the Mask" was well received by critics, scoring 81 out of 100 on the review aggregator Metacritic, indicating "universal acclaim". Spin ranked it 25 on their "40 Best Albums Of 2005", and said that "together, these two dudes are more animated than the cartoon characters who pop up on this disc." Entertainment Weekly gave it an A-, calling it a "hip-hop tour-de-farce". Magnet said "wading deep into hip-hop's rich history, they deliver a record that conjures the classics without sounding willfully retro".
