Tom's master (voiced by Stan Freberg) won't feed lazy ranch cat Tom until he gets rid of Jerry, who has been stealing food from the kitchen via lasso. Of course, every plan that Tom devises to catch the mouse backfires, at least until Jerry decides to make a deal with the cat.
Another Tom and Jerry short set on the ranch (the earlier one being Texas Tom from 1950), Posse Cat is a rather unremarkable effort with routine and repetitive gags that fail to get the laughs: Tom sets a trap, it goes wrong, and his master fires his pistol at the cat as he runs for safety. With not nearly enough inventiveness to the chaos, it all gets rather wearisome, and at just six and a half minutes, that's not a good thing.
4.5 out of 10, rounded up to 5 for IMDb.
