Storyline

Jerry and his little French mouse friend are raiding while the king sleeps. They awaken him; he calls for Tom, and delivers an ultimatum: One more sound from the mice, and it's off with Tom's head. The mice hear this, and team up to torment Tom. First, they drop piles of dishes on him; then, they cover the floor with tacks. In both cases, Tom dashes far away, then screams. Tom plugs the King's ears with champagne corks, but the little mouse clothespins his nose and mouth. Tom plays him to sleep with his violin. With the mice outside the room, Tom locks all the doors and swallows the key. They shoot an arrow through the lock into Tom's rear, and unable to get out, Tom screams in the room. The king is ready to lop off Tom's head, but the little mouse has mercy and sings him to sleep with Frère Jacques. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The final Tom and Jerry Mousketeers cartoon
3 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Tom and Jerry Mousketeers cartoons are very entertaining very like the rest of the series. Royal Cat Nap is the final one, and while possibly my least favourite of the Mousketeers series it still is a lot of fun and certainly far better than the show's 60s output(anything is better than the Gene Deitch cartoons though). The story, apart from the nice twist at the end, is on the predictable side, and some of the early gags I agree look as though they were rehashed from the previous cartoons. However, the animation is colourful and very pleasing to look at. The late 50s did not see Tom and Jerry at their best, their last really outstanding cartoon was for me Down Beat Bear, but of this particular period Royal Cat Nap is one of their better-looking. The music is very catchy and energetic, while the newer gags are lively and amusing. Tom and Jerry are their likable selves and Nibbles is adorable, also proving himself fairly resourceful in the twist.

Overall, an entertaining end to the Tom and Jerry Mousketeers series. 8/10 Bethany Cox
