As the title implies, Tom and Jerry are in a bowling alley. Both spend a lot of time sliding on the well-polished lanes. Eventually, Jerry takes up residence among the pins and Tom tries to bowl him down.

The original cartoon included a sequence where Tom blackens Jerry's face with cigar smoke (so that Jerry is now in black-face) and puts him on a plate to tap-dance to a background instrumental of "Old Folks at Home". This has been edited from most television broadcasts, and the cartoon was removed from "Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection: Volume 3" for this reason; however, it can be found uncut on "Tom and Jerry's Cartoon Cavalcade" VHS Tape.

Tom falls for the charms of Toodles, a sexy female feline who just happens to be absolutely minted. The amorous cat tries to impress the girl with giftssome flowers and Jerry on a leashbut finds that the course of true love never runs smooth, especially when alley-cat Butch becomes his love rival (after a little encouragement from Jerry).
Okay, so the set-up might not be all that original, Tom having fallen for the charms of a sexy female cat a couple of times before, but this cartoon is loaded with such charm that it still remains a lot of fun. (so long as you're not offended by Jerry dancing while in black-face). My favourite moment is an oldie but a goodie: Butch is catapulted out of a room so fast that, for a fraction of a second, he leaves his face behind.
Casanova Cat once again ends with the rather strange sight of Jerry indulging in a spot of inter-species love, the mouse beating out both cats for the attention of Toodles.
