Someone drops off three cute little kittens; Tom is put in charge of them while Beulah goes shopping. But behind her back, the the three little angels are real devils, immediately giving Tom a hotfoot and otherwise tormenting him. Jerry initially thinks they might be his allies since they have a mutual enemy, but they're cats first, so Tom and Jerry team up instead. Jerry chases the kittens, as Tom launches an aerial attack with a drop-leaf table, three pies, and a watermelon; he ends by scooping up the kittens and dropping them on the rotating clothes rack outdoors as Jerry spanks them. Tom cuts paper wings for the three "angels" as Beulah returns with their cream. Written by Jon Reeves <>

Long before Murtaugh & Riggs, there was Tom & Jerry.
10 June 2004 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

I enjoy most Tom and Jerry shorts, but this cartoon is fantastic! Three kittens are dropped off on Beulah's doorstep and Tom has to watch them. But these little kitties are actually vicious, deceitful little monsters who give the cat the most difficult of days. When Jerry tries to find common ground with them, they are still cats and attack the mouse, too. Tom and Jerry were out-gunned, but when decide to team up against them, they clicked as a force to be reckoned with.

It hardly has any slapstick that's the norm for most T&J shorts. It actually is precise, fast, and violent action. The three formidable little kitten-foes are a change from the common Spike the Dog vs Tom plots. Wow, I can't say enough about how cool the action in this short and how the animation and story excellently portrayed it. You'll just have to try to find it on the Cartoon Network, because I found it on the day I first typed this. A highly recommended lost T&J classic.
