Trivia

Pete Burness animated around 50% of the animation in this cartoon, but he didn't receive any credit because he left the studio shortly after this cartoon was made. See more »

Goofs

The door of Mammy Two Shoes's bedroom opens to the left when she opens it after hearing the crash made by Tom in the kitchen. When Tom goes into her room later, it opens from the other side. Also, when we first see Mammy asleep, she's lying on her right side next to the wall. When Tom is in the room, her bed has moved 180 degrees because her feet are seen next to the wall instead of her head. See more »

Alternate Versions

On almost all television prints, save for those in the UK, not only is Mammy's voice re-dubbed, but one particular line of dialog, "Well, slap my face, if this ain't a mess!" has also been replaced with, "Well, I'll be darned, this is such a mess!" As well, when an intoxicated Tom is about to splash water on Mammy, his line, "One for the money, two for the show, three to make ready, and four to go!", is muted, leaving only the hiccups he makes when saying the line.

In vino veritas
11 March 2007 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Tom is given the task of guarding the fridge during the night by Mammy-Two-Shoes (NOT re-dubbed by the PC brigade in the version I saw, would you believe), but as soon as he has started he is tricked by Jerry into falling into the basement, where he lands in a barrel of cider. Obviously, everyone has a barrel of cider in their basement!

Now drunk, Tom staggers around in the house getting up to no good with Jerry, clearing out the fridge, making a mess, waking Mammy-Two-Shoes. You can tell this will only end in severe punishment, but Tom simply casts caution to the wind and gets even more drunk by downing a bottle of rum he finds in the bathroom. Obviously, everyone has a bottle of rum in their bathroom.

A mildly funny cartoon, nothing particularly amazing about it. Tom actually speaks in this one but no one is credited for his voice.
