When a bulldog threatens Tom to keep away from his puppy, Jerry realizes that sticking close to the boy is the best way to keep away his feline tormentor. But Tom is not about to let the mouse evade him so easily.
Tom steals an egg from a mother's nest, cracks it over a frying pan and then discovers he can have roast duck. But the uncooperative hatchling runs away from the cat and into a mouse hole, where he finds an able protector in Jerry.
Tom is desperate for sleep after a night of revelry with his friends, but Mammy Two-Shoes demands that he stay awake to keep the mouse out of the refrigerator. Jerry, being a clever mouse, sees his opportunity to get rid of the cat.
Tom filches a drumstick from a fresh-baked chicken. When Mammy is about to discover him, he hands it off to Jerry; this lets him be a hero to Mammy and still get his chicken. Jerry is miffed, and sees his chance to retaliate: Spike is very possessive of his bone. Jerry keeps stealing the bone and planting it on Tom. Finally, Jerry bores a hole in the bone, inserts a bolt, and gets Tom to swallow a magnet. The bone keeps coming back to Tom, even through a fence. Finally, as Tom runs off followed by Spike, Jerry, who's been hiding in a tin can, is also dragged along.Written by

At one point Spike puts his bone in his kennel and goes to sleep whilst his body is blocking the kennel's entrance. Later, after Jerry has inserted a screw into the bone and put a magnet in Tom's mouth, the magnet gradually pulls Spike's bone towards him. However, Spike's position whilst sleeping has suddenly shifted from having his body across the whole entrance to his kennel to having just his face in front of it, so the bone goes through his mouth and wakes him up.

It's back to Mammy Two Shoes' house for The Framed Cat, which sees Tom blaming Jerry for the theft of a roast chicken leg, but the mouse getting revenge by making it look as though the cat has been stealing bulldog Spike's bone. Needless to say, the dog ain't amused!
Although The Framed Cat is fairly predictable knockabout cartoon nonsense, it is all so perfectly timed and wonderfully animated that it still proves a lot of fun, providing plenty of laughs with its simple but effective visual gags (I never get tired of watching a duped cartoon character realising that they're a jackass).
The cartoon gets even sillier (and even funnier) once Tom has swallowed the world's most powerful magnet, thus repeatedly attracting Spike's precious bone (in which Jerry has hidden a metal bolt).
