The title refers to the common exclamation "Suffering Catfish!" that dates backs to the 19th century to a similar expression "Suffering Moses!" Another variation on the expression was used by another cartoon feline, Sylvestor the Cat in the Warner Brothers cartoon shorts, "Suffering succotash!" See more »
Two cats fighting over Jerry? Yup, that's the case here. Tom is just tormenting his buddy but some stray outside means to have Jerry as part of a submarine sandwich. Jerry tries to smooch up to each cat, playing up to one to stay away from other. That only works once for each cat.
After that, this is just one big chase scene, but that's par for the course for a Tom and Jerry cartoon. What's different is that there are two cats chasing the mouse. Thankfully, for Jerry's sake, the cats are also beating each other up while trying to hold onto the elusive mouse. Finally, Jerry starts producing pain for both cats, something he's used to doing to poor Tom.
All in all, it makes for a fairly wild eight minutes, with most of the laughs in the second half of it, particularly when Tom is about to chop Jerry in half, but then gets another idea whispered in his ear from "the Devil." As always, the devil's advice winds up to be the wrong kind
