Mammy is about to throw Tom out for the night, into a thunderstorm. At the door, Tom gets an inspiration, and fakes a cold, which gets him a nice warm spot in front of the fire. Jerry isn't at all happy, so with a little help from some red paint, he gives Tom a case of measles. From then on, it's a case of the cure being worse than the disease, with Tom getting frozen, then roasted, then dunked in the shower. Out of the shower, he's suddenly spot-free, and he finds the paint as well. Furious, he attacks Jerry, who suddenly breaks out in measles for real just as Tom picks him up. The two thus end up quarantined together. Written by

The first minute or so is not as interesting as the rest of the cartoon, and the cartoon is perhaps too short. However, Polka-Dot Puss is very entertaining and light-hearted. The animation is beautiful and smooth, the music is energetic and the story is clever. Plus the sight gags are really inventive and unusual, starting with Tom's faking of his illness in order to stay in the house to the surprise ending which is another good example of neither character winning. Both Tom and Jerry are great and play against each other well.
Overall, Polka-Dot Puss is very entertaining, without being the best of the lot. 8/10 Bethany Cox
