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 are chums." Eventually, Jerry gets Tom locked out of the house; he runs back in and gets slingshotted into the mailbox. Written by

This cartoon had plenty of "cute" moments but not that many genuinely-funny gags. Females would probably like this Tom and Jerry effort more than males.
On the very first scene, I thought to myself, "I've seen this before." However, I hadn't but I swear they had the same opening and premise with Jerry in the role of a teacher and little gray Nibbles being the student. Here, there is a little gray cat as the student. Anyway, we get the same pose at the blackboard with the teacher wearing the mortarboard hat. (Who wears those outside of Graduation Day?)
Tom is teaching the basics, and I mean basics "Mice live in holes.....cats chase mice," etc. The little one is bored, until Jerry interrupts and starts teaching his ideas. The young cat seems more responsive to him than Tom, which drives the latter crazy. The two little ones act as friends, which is not the way it's supposed to be!
As I said, "cute," but if you are looking for the normal Tom and Jerry laughs, you won't find it in this one.
