Storyline

Tom's being especially lazy, which makes it even easier for Mammy to toss him out when her new mouse-catching robot cat, Mechano, arrives. Mechano is frighteningly efficient, foiling several attempts by Jerry. Jerry turns this efficiency against him by unleashing several mechanical mice; the zealous robot makes a shambles of the house, and finally itself, in the process of chasing them down. Tom is welcomed back, but at the last moment, a key part of the robot had gone down Tom's throat; Jerry activates it, and sends Tom chasing after one of the wind-up mice.

Hi-tech antics with cat and mouse!
4 June 2002 | by (Thatcham, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mammy Two Shoes, disgusted at the laziness of Tom, has previously placed an order for Mechano, a robot cat, which arrives one morning. After she demonstrates Mechano's effectiveness at ejecting Jerry from the household, a now-redundant Tom packs his things and leaves the house.

Jerry, meanwhile, tries many ways to outfox the mechanical moggie...

This is a fast-paced, very entertaining cartoon. It was also the last one to feature the dark-skinned, drawling Mammy Two Shoes. The race laws had somewhat changed the previous year, and the character was now no longer appropriate, so she was finally ejected from the series after just over a decade.
