How Easily We Males Are Ruined By A Beautiful Female
13 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This cartoon might be the ultimate - and wildly exaggerated - example of how us men can make such fools of ourselves over beautiful women. We are just putty in their hands!

It's springtime and Tom is love, so much so they doesn't even pay attention when Jerry rips off a large the fur on his back. (This is why I usually root for Tom - and lose, of course.) The cat is staring out the window as the hot feline across the way, who is lounging in a chair reading "Har-Puss Bazaar." Tom is perched at the window just sighing at "Toodles."

Some of the sight gags of Tom being totally enraptured by this "woman" are very funny. Jerry doesn't think they are funny and when a little green devil pops out next to him, he hears "Hey, are you going to stand there and let a dame come between you and him?" The devil keeps urging Jerry to do something about the situation because "that dame has him eating out of her hand." Admittedly, Tom looks pretty silly and has lost all sense of dignity over this beautiful pussy with the long lashes.

Anyway, the devil's plan is to provide another cat instead of Tom for the woman, so a black alley cat, living in a garbage can, is recruited. This black cat turns out to be hilarious and the rest of the cartoon is the two males bashing the hell out of each other to try to get the female's affections. These guys pull out all the stops!

In the end, we get another surprise, and another example of what I mention in the first paragraph.

This was a solid Tom and Jerry cartoon and, to me, the year 1946 started ushering in a newer era of their material, more violent but also a lot funnier.
