Poor Tom
31 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom the cat gets killed by a falling piano and ascends to cat heaven via escalator. But upon arriving at the pearly gates, the gatekeeper tells him that he needs to get Jerry the mouse to sign a document saying that he forgives Tom all the times that he chased after him. If Jerry doesn't sign it Tom has to spend eternity in hell. So naturally Tum is scared out of his cat skull and tries with all his might to get Jerry to sign on the dotted line. This cartoon is a bit far from being my favorite and I felt bad for Tom. This cartoon can be found on disc one of the Spotlight collection DVD of "Tom & Jerry"

DVD Extras: Commentary by historian Jerry Beck
