Jerry and Tuffy flood the kitchen and use the freezer to turn the floor into a massive ice-rink. Tom discovers the pair of rodents sliding effortlessly around the room and tries to catch them, but isn't as steady on his feet—at least until he finds a pair of ice skates in a cupboard.
The problem with watching a lot of Tom and Jerry cartoons in quick succession is that the action can all become a bit 'samey'; the benefit of watching a lot of Tom and Jerry cartoons in a row is that when you get a particularly good one it really stands out from the crowd.
Mice Follies is a great example, the frozen setting making a welcome change from the usual housebound chaos and allowing for some superb gags. What also makes this one sparkle is the quality of the artwork and animation, with great attention to detail in the ice and the reflections of the characters as they skate along.
