The kiddie radio host, Uncle Dudley, reminds his listeners that it is "Be Kind to Animals" week. Tom resolves to be kind to his mouse-nemesis, Jerry, but the cat changes his mind after sneaking a look at Jerry's diary.
Tom steals an egg from a mother's nest, cracks it over a frying pan and then discovers he can have roast duck. But the uncooperative hatchling runs away from the cat and into a mouse hole, where he finds an able protector in Jerry.
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

The three kittens hang from the revolving clothesline as it spins around. Part of the device is kept off camera to conceal the fact that there is a cat hanging from each of the four sections. See more »
It's not often in Tom and Jerry cartoons where you see our adversaries team up to be on the same side against a common enemy! That's what happens here, and we root for them!
It starts when the doorbell rings and Beulah winds up taking in three cute little kittens. They make look like angels but these furballs are "the kittens from Hell." (my quotes). They are sadistic, evil and....well, poor Tom has to watch them while Beulah goes out shopping.
The sight gags involving involving these kittens are hilarious and have to be seen rather than described. They may be young but immediately you can tell these rascals are not new in acting up and looking innocent at the same time. They have experience at this somewhere, which is why they were left at the front door by the previous owner.
Anyway, they ruin Tom, which spectator Jerry thinks is funny until they go after him, too, making him into a waffle and then a hot dog. As I said, one can't properly describe all the mayhem - almost all of it very cleverly-done - in this seven-minute animated short.
This, then, turns out to be one of the rare T&J 'toons, as mentioned, where Tom and Jerry wind up on the same side to give these kittens a little dose of their own medicine.
A fabulous cartoon.
