Goofs:
Audio/visual unsynchronized: 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 »

Cool cats., 29 September 2014
Author: BA_Harrison from Hampshire, England

When Mammy Two Shoes leaves the house to go to her Lucky Seven Saturday Night Bridge Club, her mischievous cat Tom seizes the opportunity to host a wild party for his alley-cat pals. Jerry the mouse, who is trying to get to sleep, attempts to stop the commotion...

The cat vs mouse action in Saturday Evening Puss is fairly routine, but what makes this cartoon slightly more memorable is the sight of Tom and his pals partying like crazy, the hairy hepcats generating some seriously groovy jazz tunes (could their antics have been the inspiration for a similar scene in Disney's The Aristocats?).

An ironic ending sees Tom and his friends thrown out of the house by Mammy, much to Jerry's delight, only for the mouse to have his sleep disturbed when Mammy puts on a record at top volume
