Storyline

Tom filches a drumstick from a fresh-baked chicken. When Mammy is about to discover him, he hands it off to Jerry; this lets him be a hero to Mammy and still get his chicken. Jerry is miffed, and sees his chance to retaliate: Spike is very possessive of his bone. Jerry keeps stealing the bone and planting it on Tom. Finally, Jerry bores a hole in the bone, inserts a bolt, and gets Tom to swallow a magnet. The bone keeps coming back to Tom, even through a fence. Finally, as Tom runs off followed by Spike, Jerry, who's been hiding in a tin can, is also dragged along. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A Magnet And A Bone = Tom Times For Tom
16 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of this cartoon is standard material but the final scene is hilarious and original with excellent sight gags. That involves Jerry putting a screw into one of Spike's dog bones (to eat, not a part of him) and then putting a strong magnet in Tom's mouth. How Jerry can do all of this without being noticed can only happen in a cartoon!

Anyway, the sight gags that follow are really good with at least one or two guaranteed to make you laugh out loud.

Earlier, after Jerry gets framed, he seeks revenge and uses Spike, the bulldog, and the bone he is savoring, as his weapon against innocent and defenseless Tom. It's the magnet joke, however, that makes this cartoon a winner.
