Muscle was robbed
3 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom the cat is giving Jerry the mouse more trouble then usual, so he sends a telegram to his cousin Muscles to come help him as soon as possible. What a great violent (even for a Tom and Jerry cartoon) short. Definitely one of the classics in my mind. It was nominated for an Oscar as best animated short in 1951, but just like "Sunset Blvd." (the best picture nominee of the year), it was cheated out of winning by a less superior product. Stupid Academy Awards. This hilarious classic cartoon can be found on disc two of the Spotlight collection DVD of "Tom & Jerry"

My Grade: A+
