Mouseketeer captain Jerry repeatedly orders his young protégé Nibbles to deliver love letters to his girlfriend Lilli. Waiting outside for Nibbles is the cardinal's cat Tom, who is always on the lookout for a sword-fight and continually makes Nibbles task a lot harder.
How much you enjoy Tom and Chérie will depend on how much you like young mouseketeer Nibbles, for he is very much the central character in this episode. I can't abide Jerry's cutesy sidekick, so was already against this one, but I also found the repetitive gags sorely lacking and the animation not up to scratch (the backgrounds, in particular, look slapdash).
The ending is the only part I enjoyed, Lilli finishing with Jerry, only for the mouse to shift his affections to another female named Marie. What a player! Naturally, Nibbles finally loses his temper, refuses to fight Tom, and stomps off into the distance. Good riddance! (unfortunately, the little mouse would return for at least a couple more adventures).
