As the title implies, Tom and Jerry are in a bowling alley. Both spend a lot of time sliding on the well-polished lanes. Eventually, Jerry takes up residence among the pins and Tom tries to bowl him down.

Jerry's raiding the fridge, carrying off a giant wedge of cheese. Tom's feeling playful, so he piles the cheese high with dishes, builds a set of bread-slice steps, and ends them on a rolling pin. This sends Jerry crashing, of course. Jerry puts the cheese back. Tom dips a paw into a bowl of jelly in the process and decides to raid the fridge; he puts Jerry's tail under an iron. After some snacking, Tom buries Jerry in the cream from a creampuff. But he also tosses the cheese wedge into the china cabinet, bringing Mammy down to scold him. Time for a scapegoat: Tom stuffs Jerry into the fridge, then runs to the next room. When Mammy screams, Tom chases Jerry but this chase ends differently, with Tom trapped in the ironing board. Jerry takes careful aim with a fork, sending Tom into the fridge, where Mammy thrashes him as Jerry munches on the cheese. Written by

Not much is happening in this short. Jerry fancies himself a midnight snack, so he decides to raid the fridge. Tom in watching and foils his plans. Content with neutralizing the mouse, Tom helps himself to whatever he feels in the fridge. But he soon makes a mess and the offensive, highly stereotypical black slave/owner goes mad at him. Tom pins the blame on Jerry and a chase follows.
There's not much in the way of creativity in this short. The kitchen environment just doesn't seem to offer too many traps, props or tricks. And while Jerry looks normal, Tom looks more feline and raggedy than he does in the later cartoons. Yes, it's worth watching but it's not as good as the Tom and Jerry we're familiar with.
