Storyline

Tom is playing with Jerry when someone delivers a cute lady cat for Mammy to take care of. Tom is smitten at first sight, and primps a bit. He offers a fish and a canary, but she's not interested. He then retrieves Jerry (filed under "M" in a filing cabinet), again proving unusually competent. He does several magic tricks with Jerry, producing him in a box of chocolates and Toots' bow, and finally tucking Jerry behind him. While trapped there, Jerry grabs a hat and uses the hat pin to even the score a bit. He runs away to a record changer, and gets Tom caught up in the machinery. With Tom thoroughly defeated (and the machine thoroughly broken), Jerry primps a bit himself, kisses Toots, and sashays into his hole. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Cat and mouse action, followed by mouse on cat action (Jerry kisses the girl).
13 March 2008 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

When Mammy Two Shoes agrees to look after her neighbours female cat, libidinous Tom pushes Jerry into a filing cabinet (under M for mouse) and sets about trying to impress the 'lady'. After offering her a fish and a bird, but getting nowhere, Tom retrieves Jerry from the cabinet in a last ditch effort to get the gal. The cheeky mouse proceeds to cause trouble for the cat, and even ends up winning the 'woman' (which strikes me as rather strange!).

A so-so episode from T&J, Puss N' Toots's only genuine highlight is when Tom is trapped on the turntable of a record player (an interesting window on the past: did they really have sound systems like that?) whilst Jerry operates the controls, smashing various records onto the poor feline's head.
