Storyline

To female cats, Master Tom is a heart-breaker; and to mice he's a head-breaker. But when Tom falls in love with Miss Kitty White, all that changes. Now, all the time he would have spent terrorizing the mouse population is instead spent primping in front of the mirror. Tom and Kitty first make love, and a great deal of noise, on a back-alley fence. Someone ends their tryst by throwing a boot. Later, they meet up by an ash can. Tom plays his banjo and Miss Kitty dances. Later, cartoon magic allows them to pluck notes from the air and turn them into go-carts. It's all fun and frolics until the mice destroy the house an oblivious Tom is supposed to be guarding, and the lady of the house throws him out by the tail. And then poor Tom gets a worse surprise.

A Strange Romance In 'Pussyville'
21 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story takes place in "Pussyville." I am not making that up, nor am I touching that line. Similar to Felix The Cat in looks, we have "Master Tom" as the main figure in this story, which has literally no sound nor sound-effects, just title cards, courtesy of "Paramount Magazine" and a few comic-strip balloons

Basically, the story is Master Tom wooing a female. Their "trysting place," as the card puts it, is a garbage can. We also see what happens when "the cat's away," as five mice trash the house. They're funny to watch.

Without saying more, the ending of this cartoon is really unexpected. It literally made my jaw drop.

Overall, this is extremely primitive and dated but so bizarre that you can't take your eyes off it. It was part of the Popeye The Sailor 1933-1938 DVD set. Look for it under the bonus feature, "From The Vault."
