Jerry is once again successfully menacing Mammy, as Tom chases him ineffectually. As Mammy and Tom crash to the bottom of the stairs, she tells him he's getting too old, and introduces his replacement, Lightning. Lightning quickly dispatches Jerry, kisses Mammy's hand, and opens the door for her as she heads to bed. He just as quickly raids the fridge, and frames Tom when Mammy comes after him. That gets Tom kicked out, too, and he and Jerry hatch a scheme. As Lightning sleeps, they shove an iron into his mouth, then use a magnet to slow him down. As Jerry shakes Mammy's stool again, Tom holds Lightning back, until a desperate Mammy calls for Tom again. Tom kicks Lightning out (hurting his foot on the iron), and Mammy rewards Tom with a pie, which he splits with Jerry. Written by Jon Reeves <>

I like the Tom & Jerry cartoons where they realize they need each other and this one is a perfect example. Jerry is teasing Mammy and she calls for Tom to help her. Of course he messes things up so Mammy takes measures of her own by taking a new cat. The first job of that cat; kick Jerry out. After Tom is blamed for something the new cat has done he is kicked out as well. Tom and Jerry realize they have to work together to keep their comfortable place in the house.

The cartoon has some nice touches in the beginning but really starts with the arriving of the new cat. The best gag comes when the new cat wants to kick Jerry out for the second time but Jerry does that for himself. An enjoyable cartoon with a happy Tom & Jerry ending, with one last gag involving poor Tom, of course.
