This cartoon re-uses the same animation and soundtrack from Love That Pup (1949). The old drawings (with some alterations) were re-filmed over different backgrounds. The purpose was to accommodate the wider screen of Cinemascope: the new backgrounds are much wider than the old ones. The result is a "remake" that is nearly identical to the earlier film. See more »
Hanna And Barbera should be skinned alive as poor Tom was here in this cartoon, which is - as another reviewer has already pointed out - almost an exact duplicate of one made over a decade earlier: 1945's "Quiet Please".
For T&J cartoon fans who hadn't seen the earlier cartoon, this will do nicely, but for animated aficionados like me and maybe you, this is an insult and a total rip-off. It's especially annoying when you have doled out your cash for a cartoon set and you get several of these rehashed cartoons.
In a nutshell, the bulldog "Spike" just wants to make sure his little pup gets some sleep and Tom, inadvertently keeps preventing that, getting the ire of the dad. Tom's stupidity is shown to the hilt here, too.
If you're already familiar with "Quiet Please!" you might as well just skip this cartoon.
