Storyline

Tom is listening to a radio chef's recipe for fish stew when he realizes the key ingredient is right there in the home goldfish bowl. Jerry has been treating this fish as a pet, though, and won't let Tom get away with his plan, saving the fish in a glass of water and a teacup, while Tom abandons his stew plans in favor of a frying pan, a grill, the toaster, and a pressure cooker.

Yet another sidekick for Jerry to protect.
29 October 2014 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Listening to a cooking show on the radio, Tom hears a delicious recipe, the most important ingredient of which is one small fish. The naughty cat immediately sets his sights on the family goldfish, but Jerry isn't about to let his scaly friend become Tom's next meal without a fight.

I'm not a great fan of Tom and Jerry cartoons in which the mouse is given a little sidekick to protect from Tom. Earlier cartoons featuring Quacker the duck and Nibbles the mouse were just too cutesy and predictable for my liking, and this one is not all that different, with Tom spending all his time trying to cook the fish, and Jerry rescuing him just in the nick of time.

Eventually, the over familiar antics come to an end through the use of that tired T&J prop, the handy stick of dynamite.

5.5/10, rounded up to 6 for IMDb.
