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!

Outstanding
7 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have been vocal before about how much I love Tom and Jerry, and this episode is no exception. The Missing Mouse is enormously entertaining, and for any Tom and Jerry fan it is what I feel a must-watch! The gags come by thick and fast, and there are lots of them. Either way, you are guaranteed a lot of laughs. The animation is beautiful, the music is excellent and seeing Tom's sly smile again is priceless. The ending is kind of sad though, but the explosion was fantastic audibly. The way Jerry outsmarts Tom here is a delight to see always and he does it here in a very entertaining way.

Overall, I think this is outstanding and definitely worth watching. 10/10 Bethany Cox
