Storyline

Mammy is tired of Jerry always eating her food and ruining her kitchen, so she gives her two cats, Tom & Butch, a warning: whoever catches the mouse gets to stay, but the one that doesn't is out. Tom and Butch begin their search for Jerry, but the mouse proves himself smarter by hitting the cats with mallets and making the oven explode. When they manage to catch the mouse they decide to battle on a duel and the winner takes all, but Tom tries to cheat and his plan backfires. Later the cats fight for Jerry, and the mouse tricks them to constantly hit each other (in a looped animated sequence). Butch finally gets ahold of Jerry and brings it to Mammy, who is actually Tom in disguise, so Tom clobbers Butch and takes the mouse. Then Butch disguises as Mammy and Tom falls for the trap too. Butch runs with Jerry but hits a plank and Jerry escapes, so the two cats are back at looking for Jerry. Both cats spot Mammy, and thinking it's the other cat still in disguise, they start to violently ... Written by Javier G. Vera

Quotes

Mammy Two-Shoes: [she hits them both, off-screen] Take this. Good-for-nothing reckless low-down. Here, take that! And this and that!
[Jerry opened the door, just before Tom and Butch were thrown out. After Tom and Butch were thrown out, Jerry wiped his hands clean, as if he had gotten rid of Tom and Butch, then starts to walk back in the house, then he realizes Mammy Two-Shoes sees him. In fear, he leaves the house, also, and closes the door, as cartoon concludes]

A formulaic, and instantly forgettable T & J episode.
21 June 2008 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Tom and 'ex-arch-enemy-turned-best-friend' Butch, are read the riot act by Mammy Two Shoes, who is fed up with the mouse that is raiding her fridge. She tells the two useless felines that whoever fails to catch the rodent will be turfed out of the house. Naturally, this pits the two moggies against each other in a battle to capture poor Jerry.

Not terrible, but way too predictable to be anything special, A Mouse in the House features the usual plethora of slapstick and violence, without adding anything particularly new to the formula.

A fun ending, which sees both cats AND Jerry booted out the front door, ends the action on a satisfying note, but it's not enough to make this cartoon worth recommending.
