Is a lot better than what 10 people have rated it as.
One of the greatest Chuck Jones Tom & Jerry I've ever seen. It's got quite a delicate structure and it's also hilarious. It's a story of a weak force being oppressed by a greater, and gets outside help. It's about the dangers of nature, even in our own homes. Jerry's expression after scampering across to the fridge says it all. He could have been caught if he'd made a tiny mistake. But just these two themes couldn't enable it to win any Oscar, for they don't those awards for humor. Jones, unlike Freleng, wanted more laughs than Awards, but he got them any way (not for this cartoon.)
