Spike the bulldog, grateful to Jerry for getting him out of the dogcatcher's van, offers to help the little mouse any time he whistles. Tom, Jerry's feline tormentor, seeks to overcome this new disadvantage.
Jerry's eccentric uncle, Pecos, a Texas mouse, comes to spend the night with him before his musical performance on television the next day. He decides to rehearse with his guitar for the performance but each time he plays, one of his guitar strings snaps off. Fortunately, he is able to replace them by plucking off one of Tom's whiskers each time. Tom is rather reluctant about this and tries to hide to protect his remaining whiskers from Uncle Pecos.

The title refers to Pecos Bill, the mythical cowboy used in American Western tall tales that were first published in 1917 by Edward O'Reilly for The Century Magazine. See more »
dAfter Uncle Pecos' first guitar string broke, the first whisker Uncle Pecos jerked off of Tom was his Tom's bottom right. Second was Tom's top right whisker. Third was Tom's left middle. Fourth was Tom's right middle. Fifth, Tom jerked off of himself, must have been his own left top or left bottom. During Uncle Pecos's singing, the whisker that Uncle Pecos, off of Tom through the television screen, was Tom's right middle whisker, which was the fourth, Uncle Pecos plucked off of Tom, while he was in Tom and Jerry's house.

In the cartoon's final minute, while Jerry's Uncle Pecos sings Froggie Went A-Courtin' song, a string on his guitar broke. Tom immediately started laughing. While Tom was laughing, Uncle Pecos quickly pulled off Tom's last whisker, by reaching through Tom and Jerry's television screen and completes the song, as the cartoon concludes. See more »
Having seen a lot of these Tom and Jerry cartoons, I usually enjoy a departure from the normal cat-chasing-mouse story, but this one just didn't connect. Once again, Tom suffers needlessly.
The story begins when Jerry receives a telegram one night which reads: "Me and My Guitar On Way To Big City for Television Debut --Stop - Will Spend Night With You, (signed) Uncle Peso"
Soon Uncle Pecos is there, a little guy with a long mustache, sombrero hat, cowboy boots and a two-string banjo. He can't stop singing, "Frog Went A- Courtin," which is going to perform the following night on TV.
The gag of the entire cartoons come next when a string breaks on the guitar. Uncle Peso wakes a sleeping Tom Cat and plucks out one of his whiskers. This happens about every 15 seconds the rest of the way, no matter what Tom does to get away from this maniac.
As mentioned, once again, poor Tom gets hurt while just minding his own business. The stuttering singer Uncle Peso, was cute for a short while but his act grew thin and too much of this cartoon - over half of it - was just him singing that stupid song.
