Storyline

At the home of Viennese composer Johann Strauss, lived Johann Mouse. Whenever the composer played his waltzes, the mouse would dance to the music, unable to control himself. One day, when Strauss was away, the housecat played his master's music. This forced the mouse to dance, providing the cat with a chance to pounce on him. When word got out about a piano-playing cat and a dancing mouse, they were commanded to perform for the emperor. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Beautiful Artwork & Charm Highlight This Award-Winner
24 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spectacular artwork takes center stage instead of the normal humor in this Oscar-winning Tom and Jerry animated short. Also unusual is that these two adversaries actually work together for half or more of this story. Not only is this one of the prettiest cartoons I've ever seen, it's a pleasing story.

This is a "take," so to speak on famous composer Joan Strauss and his waltzes. Jerry plays a little mouse who lives in the home of Strauss. When the master is at the piano, playing one of his waltzes, Jerry comes out and dances. When that happens, house cat Tom seizes upon the opportunity and chases him.

When Strauss leaves one day, Tom has a predicament: how to get the mouse out of his hiding place. Tom quickly studies how to play the piano. He is the fastest learner in history, apparently, as he becomes a virtuoso in no time! Soon, he's playing away and here comes Jerry. The house servants hear and see a fantastically-talented cat playing and a mouse dancing beautifully and they spread the word about this amazing pair. The next thing you know, the two are giving a performance at the palace! (All of this happens in one day? Apparently.)

The rest of the cartoon is the command performance the two give, before returning to their normal cat-and-mouse chasing ways!
