Storyline

Tom and Jerry (the human versions, not the cat and mouse) work as piano tuners. After seeing them at work and several creative ways of tuning a piano (such as removing the offending key and cutting the key itself to a shorter length), the two attend an opera singers performance. The singer passes out when the piano plays a wrong note, and Tom and Jerry are pressed into service to re-tune the piano. After pulling the offending key from the keyboard like a bad tooth, the two give the opera audience a jazz piano performance, with the now recovered opera singer joining in. Written by Spirit

Piano Tooners (1932)

** (out of 4)

Tom and Jerry (not the cat and mouse) are trying to tune a piano but keep having some trouble in it. They must fight the mice that are inside of it as well as the bad notes (think music note). Once the issues with the piano are settled it is sent to a concert hall where a woman with very large breasts begins to sing but more problems rise up.

PIANO TOONERS is the second film I've seen from this Tom and Jerry series and while I haven't been overly impressed with either one, at least they are a bit different than what you'd normally see from animation during this era. The animation itself is okay; it's not horrible but it's far from being good. The second portion of the film deals with the concert and I must admit that the high-pitched voice of the singer was rather annoying. I think that was the point but it just wasn't funny. There's a scene with a large woman trying to get to the middle of a row that got a mild laugh.
