A spring in his step.
6 January 2007 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Jerry wakes and figures it's going to be another day of being chased by Tom. Thinking giving Tom a big kick in the ass will get the action started he's surprised to find Tom unresponsive. The reason? Tom is in love with Toodles, the girl cat across the street. He's too head over heels to care about chasing a mouse.

Jerry then thinks of a cunning plan to tear his attention away from Toodles by faking a love letter to local alley-cat Butch. It's turns out Butch is more adept at making Toodles swoon and Tom is soon out of the picture as far as dating is concerned.

With quite a few inventive moments and loads of visual gags and a nice twist ending, this is certainly one of the better T&J shorts.
