After Jerry eats the breakfast, he jumps on the butter knife and the butter hits Tom in the face. In the next shot after the butter hits Tom, the butter is back on the dish. Then in the shot when Jerry watches Tom blowing out steam, the butter us gone. Then when Tom is tearing up the telegram, the silverware, butter, and the lemon are all gone. When Jerry digs for the shred that says "even a mouse," the lemon and the butter knife are back. Then when Tom loses his temper and attacks Jerry, the lemon, butter knife, and the dish that the lemon was on are all gone. See more »

The Million Dollar Cat (1944)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

One of the classics in the series, Tom receives a telegram telling him that he's inherited a million dollars but he can only keep it as long as he doesn't hurt anything. Including a mouse. Tom heads to New York City where he's living it up but it doesn't take long for Jerry to show up and begin tormenting him. THE MILLION DOLLAR CAT is the one episode where I can say I really, really hated Jerry. I mean, he's just so vicious and cruel to Tom here that you can't help but hope something happens to him so that Tom can enjoy his life and money. This film features a lot of very funny moments but of course it's all building up to whether or not Tom flips out and gives up on the money. Very fast, very fun and certainly one of the best.
