Tom's just settling in to listen to the radio after another round of chasing Jerry when there's a news bulletin. A lion has escaped from the circus. Tom takes all precautions, including arming himself. Meanwhile, the lion is already hiding in the basement, where he tells Jerry he couldn't take it in the circus any more and wants his help getting back to Africa. Oh, and could you find some food? If there's one thing Jerry excels at, that's it. He sneaks a ham most of the way across the floor to the lion, but Tom spots him and takes the ham, holding Jerry at gunpoint. The lion is able to eat most of the ham while Tom does this, which flusters him so much he fires into the ceiling. Jerry pretends to die, which gives him a chance to sneak the lion out of the house and into a boat headed to Africa; he waves a tearful adieu. Written by

The title is based on the Aesop Fable about Androcles and the Lion. George Bernard Shaw also wrote a play based on the same story of the man who helps a lion and who's kindness later saves him. See more »

The local radio station announces that a dangerous lion has escaped from the circus; Tom reacts to this news by locking all the windows, jamming a couch in front of the door, and arming himself with a shotgun. He's too late, though, for the lion is already in the house.
When Jerry encounters the desperate, furry fugitive, he is surprised to discover that big cat is not at all ferocious: he simply wants help to get back to his jungle in Africa. Jerry agrees to help, but first he must get the hungry lion something to eat, and so the pair creep around the house in search of food, the big cat somehow remaining unseen by shotgun-toting Tom, even when the two felines are within inches of each other. The result is a delightfully daft tale with some inventive gags.
6.5 out of 10, rounded up to 7 for IMDb.
