Okay, so this is still a long way from the brilliance of the early Hanna-Barbera cartoons, but it's a damn sight better than most of the Chuck Jones cartoons thus far, and waaaay more entertaining than any of Gene Deitch's abominations.
The Cat's Me-ouch sees Jerry ordering a vicious dog from a magazine (who knows where he got the cash from), that, on delivery, turns out to be no bigger than the mouse himself. Tom is pleasantly surprised, at least until the mutt proves his worth, his gnashers teaching the cat not to judge a dog by its size.
Yes, the gags are predictable, but the little dog is such a lovable little fellow, loyally protecting his owner from the nasty cat in a whirlwind of teeth, that the cartoon proves a whole lot of fun regardless. The animation is passable and the final gag a more than reasonable way to wrap things up (unlike some of the more abrupt endings of previous Chuck Jones T&J cartoons).
