Tom Gets 'Raked' Over The Coals, So To Speak
16 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The running gag in here was used a number of times in future Tom and Jerry cartoons, mainly Tom inadvertently getting in trouble with the big dog "Spike" because of his obsession to chase Jerry. The mouse winds up hiding in Spike's little son's doghouse and that sets up the future gags where Tom always winds up getting hammered by the ferocious and protective father.

A secondary continuing gag is Tom stepping on a rake and having it slam into his face. This happens at least a half dozen times.

Despite the familiar scenes, which you can predict, there were some original jokes that were funny, such as Tom playing with Spikes false teeth. I'd like to feel sorry for the poor, dumb cat but Tom never learns his lesson and keeps bothering the dogs....and pays for it - big- time!
