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.

not one of my faves
3 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom the cat wants the house's pet goldfish for a new recipe that he's just heard about on the radio. But Jerry the mouse doesn't want to have his beloved goldfish being eaten by Tom, so he goes about saving it from Tom's many schemes to fry it. This isn't one of my preferred Tom & Jery shorts, as I didn't really care for the fish. But a lot of the gags do work well. That said, even not so great Tom and Jerry shorts are a million times better then the sugar coated homogenized crap that passes for kid's cartoons now a days This cartoon can be found on disc two of the Spotlight collection DVD of "Tom & Jerry"

My Grade: B-
