Storyline

Tom watches and studies films of some of his earlier encounters with Jerry, much like game films; he runs them backwards and stops them so he can study them more closely, all the while scribbling notes. Jerry pulls up a box of popcorn and watches, too. Tom notices Jerry and chases him into his hole. Tom designs a better mousetrap, but Jerry alters the plans, so it doesn't work any better than it did the first time the footage was used, in Designs on Jerry (1955). Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Designs on Jerry recycled.
30 May 2017 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Tom is watching home movies of his past encounters with Jerry, noting down exactly where he went wrong in order to help him design the perfect mousetrap.

Shutter Bugged Cat deserves the lowest possible rating for trying to pass off a scene from Designs On Jerry (1955) as something new, as if Tom and Jerry fans wouldn't notice. Even those not familiar with the '50s classic will surely notice the vast difference in quality between the pilfered footage and the less detailed newer animation.

1/10.
