Storyline

A scent--which looks like a trail of vapor with a hand at the end of it--caresses Jerry as he sleeps on the wharf. It seductively leads Jerry to its source: a crate full of fromage, queso--cheese! Jerry rashly runs toward the cheese, as it is being pulled onto a cargo ship. But the scent holds out its hand to stop him. Watch out, it's telling him. And then it jerks its thumb toward Tom, the cat who is guarding the ship. Now Jerry is determined to sneak aboard, and Tom is determined to keep him on shore. The captain blithely walks about as this drama unfolds. But a shark off the pier is paying more attention. Either Tom or Jerry would make an excellent meal. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

The title is from the French fairy tail "Master Cat", more commonly known as "Puss in Boots", about a cat who uses trickery and deceit to gain power, wealth, and the hand of a princess in marriage for his penniless and low-born master. The tale was written Charles Perrault (1628-1703). See more »

Two strikes, Abe.
29 May 2017 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Jerry is relaxing in a hammock when he is lured by the aroma of a shipment of cheese. The only problem is that Tom the cat is on guard to ensure that no mice make off with the cargo.

Director Abe Levitow has another crack at a Tom and Jerry cartoon, but with no more success than his first attempt (the disappointing Jerry-Go-Round), Puss 'N' Boats suffering from some horrible drawing, and repetitive and not particularly amusing jokes.

Best moment: Tom crawling through a pipe that gets narrower and narrower, emerging as a stick-thin creature that looks like something out of a Dr.Seuss book. The worst moment comes when Levitow unwisely throws in a topical gag, Tom encountering an astronaut as he is launched sky-high by a high-pressure hose: with the spaceman rendered in an incongruous, semi-realistic style, this part really sticks out like a sore thumb.
