One of the first Tom and Jerry shorts to be shown in Cinemascope, Tom the cat chooses to find a new owner when he finds an add in the paper after his current owner makes him clean up some broken dishes. Bu the new owner winds up being a witch and takes Tom for a ride on her broom. When the witch leaves when the get back to her place, Tom decides to go for a joyride. But he learns never to mess with a witch. I just wasn't feeling this cartoon. It lacked the usual antics of earlier Tom and Jerry shorts. This animated short can be found on disc 2 of Warner Brother's 2-DVD Spotlight Collection set.
