When Jerry's mouse hole is first seen, it's in a wooden section of the attic wall to the left of the blueprint. Once Tom has finished assembling his mousetrap, the mouse hole has inexplicably moved to a painted white wall on the other side of the attic. See more »
This was extremely clever, a real treat. I love something that is off the wall, even for a cartoon. This qualifies for OTW status, as blueprint stick figures come to life, right off a big chalkboard.
Tom is building the world's greatest mousetrap and has an elaborate blueprint of it. He goes to bed dreaming of fame and fortune. Then the fun kicks in as the mouse pictured in the blueprint comes alive, climbs out the drawing and goes to warn Jerry of his impending doom. Later, the cat in the picture comes to life (not Tom) and it's he and two Jerry's - the drawn one and the real Jerry - battling it out from that point with very unique sight gags. That is because the stick figures react differently than the real Tom and Jerry. Suffice to say, this is different.
Watch this if you ever have the opportunity because it mixes brains and slapstick and humor just beautifully.
