Jerry runs into a dog pound (and right on top of a napping Spike) to escape a rather mangy-looking Tom. To avoid being ripped to shreds, Tom borrows the head of a nearby dog statue. This ... See full summary »

Spike is guarding a private fishing hole - in his sleep. Tom sneaks in to do some fishing - with Jerry as bait. But one particularly vicious fish turns out to be more than Tom or Jerry bargained for, particularly when he wakes up Spike. Written by

The setup for this one is typical Tom and Jerry stuff--but with a vengeance. Jerry never seems more abused than he is when he's being taken out of his sleeping berth in Jerry's tackle box and used as bait for a little illegal fishing in a pond with "No Fishing" signs failing to keep Tom out.
And this is despite the fact that the pond is guarded by Spike, the dog. Tom, in his usual clever fashion, manages to hoodwink the dog who is trying to get a daytime nap and remains oblivious to the fact that Tom and Jerry are about to invade the pond.
The sight gags are fast and furious with some very clever touches involving an over-sized fish intent on using his predatory instincts to survive. He almost gets his jaws around Tom and Jerry! Enjoyable and one of the most entertaining Tom and Jerry shorts I've seen in a long while.
