However, he does seem to have a guardian-like role, as the other characters sometimes ask him for help, or he gives them advice.

JumpStart Preschool: Who Left the Juice in the Caboose?

Cecil is one of the main characters in JumpStart Preschool: Who Left the Juice in the Caboose?. He is one of Eleanor's suspects for who spilled the juice in the caboose of the JumpStart train. Like in JumpStart Preschool (1999), Cecil lives in a mouse hole in the schoolhouse.

Cecil appears in several song sequences throughout the video. In the ABC song, he appears on the moon, wearing a space helmet, where he bites into a piece of moon rock only to spit it out and find out the moon is not made of cheese like he hoped, much to his disgust. He then sneezes, which sends him spiraling off into space. He also makes a brief appearance in the Letter P song, where he pops out of a pumpkin.

Towards the end of the video, it is revealed that Cecil was the one who spilled his juice, but he had no intention of leaving it there, as he was going to clean it up because he was responsible. He then says that's why responsibility is his middle name, revealing his full name to be Cecil Responsibility Mouse.

Cecil makes a brief appearance at the JumpStart Train Station. He also briefly appears in a scene where Casey in stuck up in a tree and Cecil looks up at him with concern.
