Storyline

Jerry is raiding the fridge while, nearby, a watchful Tom chases Jerry causing him to crash into a wall which, in turn, causes a bottle of white shoe polish to pour on Jerry. It is at this time when Tom hears on the radio that a dangerous white mouse, having swallowed an explosive formula, has escaped from a lab and that the slightest noise will cause an explosion and destroy a city. Tom then notices the now white Jerry and does whatever he can to stop Jerry from doing dangerous things to himself (hitting himself with a hammer,etc.). Written by Anonymous

Radio Announcer: Your attention please! We have just learned from laboratory officials that the explosive contained in the white mouse is no longer dangerous. And they have assured us the mouse will not explode.
[Tom kicks the white mouse out the window only to have it explode reducing the house to rubble]
Radio Announcer: We repeat, the white mouse will not explode.
Tom: [emerging from the rubble and speaking very slow] Don't you believe it!

An Explosive, Outstanding Short
12 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jerry is raiding the refrigerator. Tom spots him and gives him a bashing, big-time. Jerry runs for his hole but smashes into the wall knocking himself out cold. Tom goes into the other room to relax on an easy chair and read his girlie-magazine called "Wow!"

A can of white paint falls on Jerry and wakes him up. He's all white now. Tom is listening to the radio when the program is interrupted with a bulletin, "A white mouse has escaped from the experimental laboratory and has consumed enough of a new secret explosive to blow up an entire city! If you see this white mouse, telephone officials and remember, the slightest jar will explode the white mouse and destroy the entire city. Be careful...please...be very careful!"

Jerry overhears this excited announcement, looks at himself, and has devilish plans to tease and torment Tom. This is VERY funny material. However, things backfire later and Jerry accidentally falls in some water in the kitchen sink, turns back to brown and doesn't know it until after Tom gets a little revenge and then Jerry sees himself in a mirror.

Tom literally boots Jerry out of the house, but the real white mouse appears, of course, and sneaks inside and - yes - Tom thinks it's Jerry....until......

This was an outstanding episode full of good laughs.
