On Hogan's Alley, all the cats are afraid of Muscles Mouse. He pounds them at will. His cousin Jerry sends a letter asking for help dealing with Tom. Muscles immediately sets out for Jerry's and upon arrival shows Tom who's boss. Tom doesn't go gently: he works out with weights to build his strength, he uses craft to launch an attack, and he calls in reinforcements. Is Muscles up to the challenge? And what will happen to Jerry when Muscles has to go home? Written by
Apparently, Jerry the mouse has a tough cousin named Muscles who is so strong that he can take on several alley-cats in a fight without breaking a sweat. Quite why Jerry has never called on his cousin's services in the past I don't really know, but in this cartoon he finally writes to the hard-nut rodent for help.
Jerry's Cousin is the antithesis of T&J cartoons like The Milky Waif or Little Quacker, in which Jerry protected cute little sidekicks Nibbles the mouse and Quacker the duck: here it is Jerry who is in need of a bodyguard, but this little twist on a familiar formula doesn't prevent this from being yet another rather mediocre offering from the popular cat and mouse duo.
5.5/10, rounded up to 6 for IMDb.
