Jerry is far from Tom's servant here. Tom, shipwrecked, washes up on a tropical island. His first attempts at food - a coconut and a turtle - are much too hard. But he spots Jerry just before Jerry sees him, and soon has him in the frying pan. Jerry escapes to a cannibal village; when he sees Tom's frightened reaction, he has his plan. Using soot from a pot, he blackens himself, then threatens Tom and starts cooking him. But Jerry's plan - and tail, and un-blackened bottom - is exposed when his grass skirt comes off during his war dance. Jerry helicopters away using the bone in his hair, and leading Tom right into the real cannibals. But Jerry's triumph is short-lived, as a pygmy cannibal comes after him.

Did You Know?
In the version on the DVD Collector's Edition the section, although the cannibal dialogue (including that of Jerry pretending to be a cannibal when giving Tom a hard time) is present, the scene near the end in which the little boy cannibal threatens Jerry with a spear and says "Mmmm! (licks lips) Barbecued mouse!" has been optically re-framed so that the boy himself is just off-screen right. See more
