All Tom the cat want's to do is get a little catnap in the hammock of his, but Jerry the mouse is using it himself. The typical cat and mouse game ensues with many funny gags, the short also features Spike the dog. Do you guys know how hard it is for someone to continuously review these (or any short or featurette) when there's a 10 line requirement? I'd wager that has something to do with not many comments being found for one-reelers which is a shame, but I digress. This hilarious classic cartoon can be found on disc two of the Spotlight collection DVD of "Tom & Jerry"

My Grade: B+
