A female duck with six eggs watches five of them hatch, but the sixth is late to hatch - it hatches while Mama and her new ducklings swim in the lake. The sixth duckling can't swim, so he goes to Jerry, who helps him learn to swim. Tom has devious plans - catch the duckling and cook him so he can have something to eat. Written by Brian Henke <>

Did You Know?


Jerry, who has Tom by the hand, pulls the cat through a drainpipe. Tom comes out squished into the drainpipe's shape. This typical cartoon gag is accompanied by an animator's goof. In addition to the hand Jerry is holding, Tom has four - not three - little feet. See more »

In A Word: Excellent!
27 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an extremely likable Tom and Jerry cartoon where you get a good combination of humor, sentiment, drama and just plain cuteness with an ending that is guaranteed to make you smile - guaranteed!

It all revolves around a little duck who can't swim. Tom doesn't enter the story until the halfway mark. By then, Jerry has given up trying to teach the little one how to swim. His mom and brothers/sisters have swum away leaving him by himself. Tom and Jerry are on the farm in this episode, near the lake where the chick tries to swim.

Most of the highlights of this cartoon are the inventive slapstick scenes in which Tom (and a couple of times, Jerry) are made into odd shapes through some accident or whatever. There are all funny gags. The clever stuff comes in the last two minutes and the "cute" part is the ending.

All in all, a cartoon that should satisfy about everyone.
