Tom, complete with mortarboard, is teaching a kitten the basics: "cats chase mice." But Jerry keeps subverting this lesson at every opportunity, adding his own phrases, like "cats and mice ... See full summary »
A day at the beach. Tom wants to lay in the sand, but his rest is disturbed by Jerry, who walks by to go fishing. Tom ends up falling off the end of the pier as he chases Jerry and lands ... See full summary »
Tom steals an egg from a mother's nest, cracks it over a frying pan and then discovers he can have roast duck. But the uncooperative hatchling runs away from the cat and into a mouse hole, where he finds an able protector in Jerry.
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

Another routine Tom and Jerry escapade, Kitty Foiled is given the 'new character' treatment in an effort to disguise the fact that we've seen most of the gags before.
This time around, Jerry is given a hand (or, rather, a wing) in his fight against Tom by a cute canary; together, the little bird and the plucky mouse are more than a match for the cat, repeatedly teaching him to pick on someone his own size by violently smashing, bashing and generally hurting the poor moggy (who, let's face it, is just following his natural instincts!!!).
Towards the end of this rather tedious episode there are one or two moments that shine (the cat caught in the bear rug gag, and the bowling ball bomb), but, in general, this is one of the duo's lesser efforts.
