When a duck hatches from the egg underneath Tom, he is convinced he is his mother. Tom thinks that he would like to eat the newborn duck, but Jerry shows him the truth while saving him from being eaten.
Jerry removes a tack from Spike's paw. In gratitude, Spike gives Jerry a bell to ring when he's in trouble. Soon, Tom is acting as Jerry's servant. But then the city passes a leash law, and Spike can no longer help. Soon, Tom is taunting Spike (much like Foghorn Leghorn taunts the barnyard dog) and harassing Jerry, who becomes his servant until the leash law is repealed. Written by

This is a story I have seen elsewhere but I can't remember in which cartoon. The premise is the same: the little hero saves a dog from pain and the dog promises to be his guardian. In here, all Jerry has to do is ring a little bell and the dog will immediately come to his rescue and pulverize anything that's bothering him. You know who that will be
Tom! However, a new leash law on dogs may have given Tom a new leash
on life (ouch.....sorry).
A few memorable sights include: Tom's head turning into a gum-ball machine; Tom testing the length of the leash on "Butch," to see if he's safe a certain distance away. (After the dog is tormented - with great sight gags - the dog gets clever and erases the "boundary" line and makes it closer, unbeknown to the cat.)
Very clever gags in here make this 1952 Tom and Jerry entry a real winner.
