Tom's chasing Jerry around Mammy the maid, when she accidentally clobbers Tom with her broom. This makes Tom think he's a mouse, including crowding into Jerry's hole and eating cheese. Neither Jerry nor Mammy are happy about Tom's amnesia. Jerry tries to hit Tom again to change him back, but seems to have lost his aim (even a piano misses). A bowling ball does catapult Tom into the ceiling and change him back, but then on the rebound, he gets hit again and changes into a mouse again. Finally, a Rube Goldberg sequence triggered by Jerry's carelessly tossed bit of cheese drops an ironing board on Tom's head. Success! Except that Mammy, who's reached the same conclusion as Jerry, happens along with a baseball bat and changes Tom back into a mouse. Written by

The only time Jerry Mouse speaks English, saying "Yahoo!" after he got rid of Tom's amnesia, thinking he was a mouse, and back to being a cat (and just before Mammy Two-Shoes hit Tom, getting the amnesia right back, immediately). See more »
[spoken by Jerry Mouse, just after his plan kmocked Tom out of amnesia, thinking he was a mouse and left Jerry's mousehole and only time Jerry Mouse spoke a real English word, other than ouch, a gasp, a scream or a shriek or any other noisy sound]

Well, I have to give the writers credit for "originality" in this one, which plays better than it probably sounds in my review. When I read on the IMDb notes that Tom gets hit on the head and then thinks he's a mouse, it sounded kind of stupid. Maybe the premise was silly, but it turned out to be very funny.
I saw sights in here I would never find in any other Tom and Jerry cartoon, such as Tom squeezing into Jerry's mouse-hole and trying to sleep on his bed! Tom's squeaks are funny and it was fun to see him turn the tables on the maid, who was always giving him a hard time. It also was satisfying to see Jerry frustrated, for once, instead of the poor cat being flustered unable to get Jerry.
Overall, a more-than-solid Tom and Jerry effort.
