So much for Professor Mouse.
21 November 2016 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Jerry is a qualified instructor in the art of outwitting cats and has a new pupil keen to learn his secrets: Tuffy (AKA Nibbles, that irritating baby mouse in the nappy). Jerry demonstrates each lesson before sending Tuffy out to try his luck, with the youngster usually being far more successful in his missions than his teacher. The last two tasks Tuffy achieves by being kind and polite to Tom. At the end of the cartoon, Tuffy is now the master, and Jerry the student.

For a cartoon co-starring Tuffy/Nibbles, one of the characters I like least in the T&J series, Little School Mouse isn't so bad, with a few laughs at Jerry's expense for a change (funniest moment being the mouse repeatedly swatted by a mechanical cat's paw operated by his student). Tom gets off rather lightly in the pain department for a change, and is even welcomed into Tuffy's class at the end, with Jerry forced to wear the dunce cap.
