Rather generic cartoon
12 September 2006 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Nothing of any particular interest or originality happens in this short. Tom is having his usual fun tormenting Jerry but the mouse runs into a stray cat and pretends to be best friends with him (by kissing him-gay lovers?) to upset Tom. Soon both cats are feuding over Jerry whilst being set-up by him. Oh, do watch my sides as they just might split!

I wasn't really impressed and there's not a lot to laugh at in the 8-minute running time. The short actually has some dialogue in it but there's no credited voices for some reason on this page. There's nothing I can recommend about this cartoon as it is Tom and Jerry at their most basic. The title is rather generic too.
