Storyline

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 Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

This Hanna & Barbera short title is reminded, in Tex Avery's 1949 short, Bad Luck Blackie (1949) after a continuously trouble making bulldog to a kitten squeezed the kitten, that kept trying to find a hiding place from the dog. The kitten is in a bookcase, but the dog shoved the set of books together, causing the kitten to look like a book for approximately 5 seconds as KITTY FOILED. William Hanna, Joseph Barbera & Tex Avery were three animation directors at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM). They gave and shared ideas to each other. Animation producer, 'Fred Quimby (I)', was deeply disliked, as if he accepted credits of Hanna & Barbera's seven Academy award winning shorts, The Yankee Doodle Mouse (1943), Mouse Trouble (1944), Quiet Please! (1945), The Cat Concerto (1947), The Little Orphan (1948), The Two Mouseketeers (1951) and Johann Mouse (1952). See more »

Any friend of Jerry's is a friend of mine...
4 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed Kitty Foiled, never once did I find it generic and bland but that is just me. The sight gags are plentiful, and all of them work thanks to primarily the fast pacing. The best of them is when Tom ties Jerry to a railway track, and the canary saves Jerry's life by making a bowling ball fall through the track(and Tom falls through the hole of course), though everything else is on the money. As per usual, the production values and music are top notch, and while Tom is more sadistic than usual he is fun. And you really feel sorry for Jerry, but I had real admiration for the cute canary, anybody who saves Jerry's life is a friend of mine, that's what I'd say. Overall, thoroughly enjoyable and a lot of fun. 10/10 Bethany Cox
