Tom is, of course, chasing Jerry. He's about to administer the coup de grace when a canary intervenes, dropping the bottom of his cage on Tom. Tom then chases the bird a while, and Jerry intervenes at the critical moment. The bird helps Jerry get to his hole. The two continue to team up against Tom. The bird points a gun at Tom and chases him with it; Jerry drops a light bulb, making Tom think he's been shot. They celebrate, but Tom comes to, tying Jerry to the model train tracks. The bird drops a bowling ball, sending Tom crashing into the basement. Written by

Tom is chasing Jerry when the mouse befriends a small canary. A lot of the gags work and hearing Tom's laugh is infectious. And the canary is one of the third characters that I like, unlike the buzzard for Flirty Birdy or the fish from Cat Fishin'. All in all this is a pretty funny violent Tom and Jerry short. This hilarious cartoon can be found on disc one of the Spotlight collection DVD of "Tom & Jerry"
My Grade: A
DVD Extras: Commentary by historian Jerry Beck on how this is his favorite Tom and Jerry cartoon, talks about Jerry's sidekicks, and the animators (kinda sparse, with some silent parts)
