Lots Of Good Sight Gags
9 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Mascot Tom" has been hired aboard a cruise ship. He has the assignment to make sure there are no mice on board. "If I find one, you'll be fired," says the ship's captain. Minutes later, here comes Jerry on his way on-board, complete with straw hair and playing his banjo. He's going to Hawaii aboard the U.S.S. Aloha. As he gets to the top, however, Tom is there to greet him and boot him back onto the dock.

Now Jerry has to find a way to get on the ship, past Tom. He tries several clever ways, climbing a rope, pole vaulting, etc., and finally succeeds when he hitches a ride on the anchor, which is being hoisted out of the water.

The rest of the cartoon is Tom discovering Jerry and trying to get rid of him before the captain spots the mouse. En route, there are lots of good sight gags making this an entertaining short. A clever scene had the two cats winding up in a room where they were showing a Tom and Jerry cartoon!
