Mice Are Good for Something is the 117th level in Chip's Challenge Level Pack 3. It was created by David Stolp, and the block formation containing the 16 blocks necessary to bridge to the thief that allows Chip to slide over the ice at the beginning of the level, thus allowing him to avoid the pink ball, is an actual mouse. Advanced mechanics and obscure puzzle motifs are common in David Stolp's levels, including the use of the mouse, and this level was likely designed to parody the term mouse. The pi character below the mouse is also a mark of David's entries in CCLP3.
Originally, Chip was intended to be off the map entirely, such that the Non-Existence Glitch would allow the level to be busted by waiting until the ball stepped on [0, 0] to move R, but pushing the blocks through the successively more difficult recessed wall, ice and force floor maze in the southwest to bring them around to the water was judged sufficiently entertaining for this bust to never make it to the released version of pi.dat.
