Tom chases Jerry for no particular reason, and the cartoon seems to be giving us the usual fare until Jerry flattens Tom with a piano, killing him. A quick ride to heaven on an escalator brings him to the pearly gates, where some kind of train conduction is a cat version of Saint Peter. The Heavenly Express leaves in an hour and if Tom can get a signed document of forgiveness from Jerry he's free to enter. If not-HELL!
Now it's Tom's chance to be as nice to Jerry as possible, but he's having none of it and refuses to sign, sealing the cat's fate forever. It's a funny cartoon, with some nice moments. Though I was a little surprised to see the three dead kittens drowned in a bag at the gates of heaven.
