This Time, Tom Deserves To Get It!
1 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Now here is something different: Tom versus a little chick, at least for awhile until Jerry comes to little fowl's aid. The story begins outdoors on a farm, which also is unusual for a T & J 'toon. Tom robs an egg while the mother duck is busy elsewhere. He races home and plans on making an omelet, except the egg hatches on the skillet.

Running for his life after Tom tries to kill the poor bird, the little featured guy winds up in Jerry's mouse hole. He explains - this is talented chick who speaks English the moment he's born! - to Jerry what's going on, so Jerry turns Good Samaritan.

Most of the time, Tom is doing his Lizzy Borden impression, trying to chop the little ones, so anything he gets in here he has coming to him!

There are so some decent gags mixed in with a cute ending as the Jerry leads the little guy to find his mother, who then gets the man of the house to take care of bad 'ol Tom.
