Tom is "killed" while chasing Jerry (as usual). He goes to heaven and meets the cat who meets dead cats boarding the "Heavenly Express." Tom is given one hour to have Jerry sign a letter of forgiveness. If Jerry signs, he goes to heaven; if he doesn't then he goes to hell. Written by

The length of Tom's dream & nightmare (after opening credits conclude to a piece of coal popping out of the nearby fireplace, landing on his rear and quickly waking him up) is 6:49 = 409 seconds = 6 minutes & 49 seconds. See more »

Fatally crushed by a piano while pursuing Jerry, Tom must be assessed before being permitted to ride the Heavenly Express; rather than being congratulated for his mouse chasing efforts, he is told that he has one hour to seek Jerry's forgiveness or he will forever be condemned to Hell.
After a couple of fun but relatively uninspired capersThe Little Orphan and Hatch Up Your Troublesit's nice to see the people behind Tom and Jerry at least trying something a little different for a change, even if it isn't a wholly successful idea. The basic premisethat Tom would be punished for all eternity just for following his natural instinctsis admittedly daft, but it's a lot of fun to see Tom begging Jerry to sign his name while the devil (Butch the Bulldog) prepares a bubbling pot of brimstone in Hell.
Of course, it all ends up being a dream, and thus a bit of a cop-out, but it's fun while it lasts. Plus, it has a gag about drowned kittens in a sacknot something you see every day in a cartoon!
