Who'd have pets, eh? Everyone, if they're cartoon ones!
Tom and Spike, who eat rather a lot of food, fear for their lives when their master and mistress decide to cut down their overheads by ejecting one from the household. After not being able to decide which one to remove, they make a bet: the one that catches Jerry will get to stay in the house, while the other will get his marching orders. Very amusing, but not a classic, and it was becoming apparent by the looks of the characters that even MGM's animation studio was being forced to make some cuts to its animation output; it's most noticeable in the rather straight drawing of the master (what you can see of him, anyway) and the way the rolled-up rug gets cut up in such even sections. Still enjoyable, though.
