Spike, The Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer dog, was listed as "Killer", in this short, but with the same person, Billy Bletcher's voice. See more »
I got a gal who's always late / Anytime we have a date. / But I love her. / I'm gonna ask her / Is you is or is you ain't my baby? / The way you acting lately makes me down. / You is still my baby, baby. / Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out. / A woman is a creature that's always been strange. / Just when you're sure of one / You find she's gone and made a change. / Is you is or is you ain't my baby? / Maybe baby's found somebody new. / Or is my baby still my baby...

Tom gets to do some picking early on as he torments and then ties up "Killer" the watchdog. Tom wants to serenade some cat-beauty in the window and needs the dog out of the way. Tom then shows us his musical talent - and it's hilarious - as he sings Cab Calloway-swing-style and plays the bass with the toes! That number - "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby?" is a lot of fun to see and hear.
Jerry, sleeping contently in his sardine can, is woken by the music, hates it and baits Tom into chasing him at his place nearby. That's the second half of this story and there is more funny and clever material, especially when Jerry frees "Killer " and sicks him on the poor cat.
We also get to hear Tom's French imitation of Charles Boyer, which is really a hoot.
This is one excellent cartoon - really good stuff.
