Storyline

Mammy's stepping out for the evening (to play cards, as it turns out). While she's way, the cats will play: in this case, Tom and three of his alley cat friends. Their music keeps Jerry awake, so he takes action. His first strike silences them only long enough for him to return to his hole. They lure him out by restarting the music, and the chase is on: four against one. Jerry holds out for a while, but is soon tied with the cord from the venetian blinds, and the cats resume. Jerry manages to crawl to the phone and call Mammy, who comes running and throws all four cats out. But Jerry's peace is short-lived: Mammy decides to salvage what's left of the evening by listening to some music. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

You can see Mammy Two-Shoes' face for two frames as she runs back to the house. See more »

Goofs

When the piano-playing cat slides Jerry down the piano, he is sliding Jerry from the right of the keyboard to the left of the keyboard (high notes to low notes). However, the sound coming from the piano appears to be the opposite of what was showing (i.e. low notes to high notes). See more »

Cats: The Original Musical
13 October 2008 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Mammy-Two-Shoes (dubbed to sound less 'racist' to appease the narrow-minded PC brigade in the version that I saw) goes out for the night, leaving Tom alone with the house to himself. He immediately invites a bunch of alley cats around for a party, causing no end of disturbance to Jerry, who doesn't take kindly to their music.

After attempts at silencing them fail, Jerry is tortured and tied up, but he still has enough in him to call Mammy-Two-Shoes (the number he dials is nothing but 1-1-1-1-1) and get Tom in trouble.

It's an average cartoon, which nothing to make it really stand out above the rest with the exception of two frames in which you actually get to see Mammy-Two-Shoes' face. Otherwise; bland.
