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, 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 »
The kiddie radio host, Uncle Dudley, reminds his listeners that it is "Be Kind to Animals" week. Tom resolves to be kind to his mouse-nemesis, Jerry, but the cat changes his mind after sneaking a look at Jerry's diary.
Tom is desperate for sleep after a night of revelry with his friends, but Mammy Two-Shoes demands that he stay awake to keep the mouse out of the refrigerator. Jerry, being a clever mouse, sees his opportunity to get rid of the cat.
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 underwater, where he encounters a mermaid whose top half looks just like Jerry. A chase, naturally, follows, all underwater. The mermouse, however, runs into a swordfish, and it begins chasing Tom, too, turning into mer-Jerry's ally, until it gets stuck in what looks like a telephone pole. The chase is next interrupted by an octopus, which grabs hold of Tom until Jerry yanks him free when we discover this is all a fever dream of Tom's, and Jerry has actually been performing artificial resuscitation.

He "wakes up" and is delighted seeing all the colorful fish swim by him. He even gets in on the act, imitating some of them, like the sea turtles. Jerry, meanwhile, is leaning on a big rock nearby taking all of this in. It turns out he's a mermaid, er, mermouse. In no time, the two adversaries are chasing each other - some things never change.
There are all kinds of outrageous scenes in here, with seahorses, a giant swordfish, an octopus, a sunken ship, on and on. Sometimes I am amazed how many things you can see in a seven-minute cartoon.
I kept waiting for Tom to wake up, that this HAD to be all a dream, and......
