not as good as "Kitty Foiled"
3 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jerry the mouse helps his old friend the canary (from the great "Kitty Foiled") that Tom the cat is trying to capture for dinner. Tom tries in vain to get the bird, even going so far as to make a pair of wings for himself to soar at the birds level. A few funny gags highlight this animated short, but it's just not as good as the previously mentioned "Kitty Foiled". I can't seem to put my finger on just why though. But this film is still funny and very much worth your time. This hilarious classic cartoon can be found on disc two of the Spotlight collection DVD of "Tom & Jerry"

My Grade: B
