Storyline

The Easter bunny brings an egg for Tom and Jerry that hatches into the little duckling. He keeps getting into water he shouldn't: the aquarium, water cooler, bathtub, sink, as the boys keep rescuing it. They try to give the duck back to the Easter bunny - no go. They leave it in the pond at the park and think they're home free, until the duckling brings his friends home. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Soooooooo adorable!!!!!!!!!!!
29 November 2002 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This is one of the few shorts in which Tom and Jerry were actually friends instead of enemies. They both get a surprising Easter present: A duck! Both try to help the cute little baby duck live in water. Eventually, all succeed.
