Trivia:
This was the first Tom and Jerry cartoon to be filmed in CinemaScope, and the second to be released in the format (the first, Pet Peeve (1954), was filmed later but released nearly a month earlier). Thicker lines were required because any tiny imperfection would be very noticeable on the larger screen.See more »

En garde!, 15 August 2007
Author: Atreyu_II from The world of artists

Although this cartoon came after "The Two Mousketeers", it takes place before that one. This makes it a prequel, not a sequel. In my opinion, "Touché, Pussy Cat!" is equally very good and solid, but I find the previous one even better. This one has also very stylish artwork, but the first one has more attention to detail.

The concept is similar and the cartoon itself is inspired by the triumphant original one, but the stories are different. Here, Jerry and Tuffy (not Nibbles anymore, I wonder why) don't go to a castle. Tuffy is about to learn to be a mouseketeer, but first he has to go to the King's Mouseketeers Headquarters in Paris, where Jerry (the captain of the mouseketeers) will teach him. However, Tuffy is so young and overexcited that Jerry becomes the victim of some accidents with Tuffy's sword. That is so funny and Jerry makes those funny facial expressions of displeasure. Of course, Jerry does not laugh, but for Tuffy this is every bit as hilarious as it is for me. Jerry is a proud, firm, impatient and serious captain.

Tuffy, a silent mouse in older cartoons, is actually very talkative in these "Mouseketeer" cartoons. His voice is very cute and his french accent is very charming. I love all his lines in french, including him singing the adorable and famous childish song "Frère Jacques". Tuffy is like a parrot here. He talks very quickly and very much, which is too much for Jerry (who hasn't much patience). To keep Tuffy quiet is a real challenge for Jerry. LOL.

Once Tom appears there are some hilarious situations with him and Tuffy (especially the scene when Tuffy paints a simplistic caricature of Tom as if he was mocking of Tom's face, singing "Frère Jacques" and laughing to Tom - who does not laugh); and, of course, the usual fights, chases and some violent gags (Jerry included).

At the end, after Jerry suffering another accident with Tuffy's sword caused by Tuffy's hand, the little mouse says "C'est la guerre!" while Jerry spanks him on the rear over and over.
