Storyline

Tom is chasing Jerry again. In a panic, the mouse runs into the doghouse of little Tyke, the bulldog. Right next to the sleeping Tyke sleeps Spike, his father. Tom unthinkingly snatches the puppy out of his house. When Spike wakes up and sees this, he delivers a stern warning: Stay away from my boy, or else. Jerry realizes that sticking close to the boy is the best way to repel his feline tormentor, but Tom is not about to let the mouse evade him so easily. Written by J. Spurlin

Trivia

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.

A Remake Of A Previous T&J Cartoon
5 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe they skinned the wrong people (animal).

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.
