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 »

Thoroughly pleasant and enjoyable, 17 June 2010
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

Saturday Evening Puss isn't the best Tom and Jerry cartoon I have seen, but it is very funny, pleasant and enjoyable. The story doesn't really hold any new surprises and the ending wasn't as impressive as the rest of the cartoon, but everything else is fine. The animation is very colourful and lively, and the sight gags are very, very clever and inventive. Tom, Jerry and Mammy Two Shoes are endearing and likable still, but what made the cartoon was the soundtrack. I loved it, it was catchy, memorable and upbeat, the sort of soundtrack I love in cartoons. Overall, a very pleasant and enjoyable Tom and Jerry cartoon, that works well on re-watches. 9/10 Bethany Cox
