Storyline

Jerry lives in a wall separating a duplex. The mouse holes on both sides of the wall allow him to visit either living area, but they also leave him vulnerable to the two cats who live opposite each other. Luckily for Jerry, neither Tom nor his orange counterpart know of the other's existence. That gives him the opportunity to pit one against the other without the cats even knowing. Jerry tricks Tom into reaching into his hole with a flyswatter; and, as the wily mouse planned it, Tom hits the orange cat with great force. The fly-swatted feline, imagining a muscle-bound mouse, throws his fist through the hole and socks Tom across the room. Poor Tom imagines his longtime enemy to be an even more muscle-bound rodent. The fighting continues with a spear gun, a cannon, a stick of dynamite and a pair of grenades, each cat doing all the damage to his feline confrère rather than the intended target. Written by J. Spurlin

Limp stuff, another potboiler
9 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being released immediately after "Cat & Dupli-Cat," this film immediately strikes one as a very lame rewrite: the second cat character's supposed to provide extra character interest (& hopefully, even upstage the two "stars" here, whom Jones never really got the hang of). But whereas in the first film the orange cat handily took the honors, this film's yellow cat has no such redeeming trait. He's rather insipid looking, and it's perhaps just as well little time was spent with him; this is largely due to the directorship (Jones handed direction to longtime Warner unit animator Abe Levitow for this one). There's very little to offset the fact this is yet another "potboiler" Jones apparently felt obliged to churn out for the new studio he was assigned to (and "potboiler" is a fatal attitude to take in the case of a once-classic cartoon series). And yet, Levitow shows a better grasp of the two star characters than Jones did in his film....so the former MUST be doing something right.
