Jerry's magician friend (cousin?) drops by, levitating Tom. Later, when Jerry is preparing dinner, Tom accidentally grabs the magician, who hypnotizes him. While Tom is under, the magician goes into Tom's stomach and frees/revives all the birds, mice, and even a fish. And he's just getting warmed up. Written by

Tom and Jerry in a haunted house sounds like fun. Except that isn't what this is. Instead, Jerry gets a visit from yet another friend/relative, this time a magician/hypnotist who uses his uncanny powers on the cat whenever he causes the mice trouble.
Once again, Chuck Jones seems to have no feel for what is right in a Tom and Jerry cartoon, with the most ridiculous idea being Jerry's elevator in the fridge (which is almost as daft as the swimming pool in The Brothers Carry-mouse-off). I remember the good old days when all Jerry had was a sardine tin for a bed (I guess he must have won the lottery).
By now, I've gotten used to Jones' style of animation on T&J, but that doesn't mean I like it, and the same goes for the humour, which cannot hold a candle to the early Hanna-Barbera/Fred Quimby cartoons.
