Someone drops off three cute little kittens; Tom is put in charge of them while Beulah goes shopping. But behind her back, the the three little angels are real devils, immediately giving Tom a hotfoot and otherwise tormenting him. Jerry initially thinks they might be his allies since they have a mutual enemy, but they're cats first, so Tom and Jerry team up instead. Jerry chases the kittens, as Tom launches an aerial attack with a drop-leaf table, three pies, and a watermelon; he ends by scooping up the kittens and dropping them on the rotating clothes rack outdoors as Jerry spanks them. Tom cuts paper wings for the three "angels" as Beulah returns with their cream.Written by

The three kittens hang from the revolving clothesline as it spins around. Part of the device is kept off camera to conceal the fact that there is a cat hanging from each of the four sections. See more »
As a huge Tom and Jerry fan, springing from a very early age, I love Triplet Trouble. The animation I cannot fault, not surprising since we are talking about the animation from a cartoon that came from Tom and Jerry's best overall decade. Everything is very crisp and smooth and lusciously coloured. The music, as it is as well with the Disney and Looney Tunes shorts, is typically catchy and always enhances the action. The story is fast and furious in pacing, and not predictable. In fact, the idea to have Tom and Jerry on the same side as they get their own-back on the kittens by giving them a taste of their own medicine is very interesting and is a touch I don't think I've seen before in a Tom and Jerry cartoon. Triplet Trouble is more violent than the usual (entertainingly that is) slapsticky standard, but this is done in a clever and funny way rather than the sickening way seen in the abominable Gene Dietch Tom and Jerry cartoons. The gags are thick and fast and all hit the mark. Tom and Jerry are still the likable characters we know and love, and the triplet kittens, not being what they seem and that's an understatement, are great counterpoints. In conclusion, have the characteristic mayhem multiplied by three and you have a hugely entertaining cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
