Fluff, Muff and Puff?
[He then looks down to see a wet bag bouncing towards him, out of it pops three cute kittens, apparently drowned by someone. They meow at him, shake off the water, climb out of the bag and proceed through]
[he then shakes his head & clicks his tongue]
Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. What some people won't do.

In this cartoon Tom and Jerry have their usual chases but then Tom gets crushed by a piano rolling down the stairs. Tom's soul arrives at the pearly gate but if he wants to go with "The Heavenly Express" to heaven Jerry must sign a document that says he forgives Tom or else Tom goes to hell. This is in my opinion one of the lesser Tom and Jerry shorts from the 40,s. It's no wrong about the music which is great and the animation is great too but I don't really like the plot. I think the scene when Tom is in heaven and Spike is the devil are the only things that makes this short watchable. The end is also pretty cute but i won't spoil that.
My grade: C
