One of my favorites!
16 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is absolutely one of my favorite Tom & Jerry Short! It Starts when Tom is playing dart and jerry is in the goal-table, Tom receive a telegram saying that his masters aunt has left 1 million dollars to Tom, he screams out his happiness and Jerry is wondering why he is so happy, then he goes and read the letter and it says that if Tom hurts a living thing, he loses all his money.. Tom moves to Park Ave and of course Jerry follows him to his new place, and torment him all the time by eating Tom's food, throwing him out the bed, using the shower all the morning knowing that Tom can do nothing to stop him..

The next morning Tom is waiting to enter the Bathroom but jerry is in there and he opens the door and take Tom's towel and closes the door and Tom is trying to open the door but fails, He begins to think how he can get rid of Jerry and gets an idea! He writes a paper where it says ''Fire Exit'' and put it in the window and he starts a little Fire and Jerry jumps down the skyscraper and Tom is so happy and go to eat his breakfast but then to his surprise Jerry appears with the cutlery and eat up all Tom's food, throwing food at him and degrade him, Tom get's Furious and tear the Telegram apart and press the teared paper in Jerry's Mouth and screams in anger and destroy the whole table and gets enraged against Jerry and he speaks too! ''Im throwing away a million dollars.. But I'm Still happy!'' And so it ends...

Enormously funny entertainment! If you haven't seen it i strongly recommend it!
