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 »
One of a series that have Jerry and Nibbles as swordsmice in France.
This cartoon, winner of an Oscar, is one of several that have Tom and Jerry channeling Errol Flynn and Basil Rathbone (Nibbles seems to be channelling Eugene Pallette) and its all great fun. A marvelous cartoon, not my favorite of them, but excellent nonetheless. That its not in-print (with the others is sad. Cartoon Network does run it frequently though, so watch it, by all means. Most recommended.
