Storyline

This Tom and Jerry cartoon is set in 18th century France. Tom, who is a soldier in a castle, is assigned to guard the food laid out on a banquet table. Jerry and a smaller mouse companion, two wandering "mouseketeers," make the situation miserable for Tom as they abscond with (and occasionally eat) all the food they can.

Goofs

Nibbles sings the song "Alouette" while he is making a sandwich. The song is French-Canadian, not French, and was not published until the latter half of the 19th century, well after the 18th-century setting of this cartoon, making this anachronistic as well. See more »

great animated classic
3 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tom the cat is a soldier assigned to guard the banquet table. Along come Jerry the mouse and his orphan friend Nibbles, looking for something to eat and causing Tom much grief. This short won an Oscar for best cartoon short subject in 1952 and it's easy to see why as it's clever, humorous, and just an all around joy to watch. Utterly brilliant in every way and it retains it's humor upon repeated performances despite the slightly disturbing ending. One of the many many classic Tom and jerry animated shorts. This hilarious animated short can be found on disc 2 of Warner Brother's 2-DVD Spotlight Collection set.

My Grade: A+
