Storyline

The Bide-a-wee Mouse Home sends two orphans over for a hike with Scoutmaster Jerry. Trouble is, the orphans, dressed as Indians, want to shoot arrows and tomahawk-chop everything in sight, and especially Tom, who quickly gets scalped and has the end of his tail chopped off. He captures Jerry; this, of course, means war, for which the tots paint dozens of badminton shuttlecocks as a fake army. They also paint a fierce face on the sleeping dog. Ultimately, they get Tom to leave a trail of gunpowder, which they light, destroying the garage. Tom signals a truce, and they all smoke a peace pipe, but the smoke comes out of Tom's ears instead of his mouth. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

The title is based on the nursery rhyme "Ten Little Indians", though the Agatha Christie mystery novel 'And Then There Were None' was also published under the same name. See more »

Crazy Credits

After Tom raises a white flag, surrendering to Jerry & the two Indian mice, all four smoke a peace pipe, Jerry & the two mice "puff" the pipe correctly. When it is Tom' turn, the smoke apparently went down the wrong side of his esophagus. When Tom tries to puff & no smoke comes out of his mouth, he accidentally swallowed the smoke. Three seconds later, three puffs come out of his left ear & three come out of his right eat (at the very same time) apparently to spell out THE END. See more »

Two Little Brats
12 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Scoutmaster Jerry is given the assignment of taking two orphans from the "Bide-a-wee- Mouse Home" on a hiking trip. Boy these orphans are brats.

Poor Tom is the innocent victim, as he tends to be on occasion. He's just lying under a tree taking a snooze when these little wise-guys take potshots him. Jerry isn't pleased with that, either, trying to stop them, but no avail. Soon, the chase is on with Tom going against all the mice. He captures Jerry but the little orphans come to his rescue with some inventive, humorous methods.

Another fun episode.
