Tom's playing tennis, and Jerry is carrying his equipment for him. However, Tom's opponent, a cigar-smoking cat, is much better than Tom and is soon (literally) beating him soundly. Jerry comes to the rescue with a special "killer" tennis ball. But before long, everyone seems to be playing against everyone else. Written by Jon Reeves <>

The Wildest Tennis Match Ever!
16 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

By the late '40s, Tom and Jerry had hit their stride, with excellent sight gags and a general wackiness to the stories. Whoever wrote this - probably directors Joseph Barbera and William Hanna - did a super job with it, because about every imaginable cartoon-like tennis stunt you could think of was included in this cartoon.

It's the championship tennis match, pitting Tom against some cigar-chomping cat but it no time it's a three-animal match with Tom, his opponent and Jerry Mouse all clobbering each other with an assortment of wicked shots and, well, let's say, bending of the rules.

Funny, inventive stuff and highly-recommended.
