The Bide-a-Wee Mouse Home has sent the orphan mouse, Nibbles, to spend Thanksgiving with Jerry. But Jerry's cupboard is bare, and Nibbles is always hungry. They start by raiding Tom's milk dish, but Tom wakes up and drains it. Fortunately, Mammy has just put out a huge Thanksgiving feast, just ready for the raiding. And that's just what Jerry and Nibbles do, grabbing Pilgrim hats from the table decorations. All goes fairly well until Nibbles eats a whole orange, which is way too big for him. Jerry smacks him with a spoon, which sends the orange flying, right into Tom's mouth. Tom stalks up to the table in a feather duster, which turns into an Indian headdress. Battle follows, featuring Tom sending flaming cat-tails after the mice, and culminating in a champagne bottle launching Tom into the dish cabinet, which crashes down. Tom waves a white flag, and all three sit down to a polite dinner, but Nibbles eats the whole turkey before anyone else can touch it.Written by

The original print has a scene showing Tom being set on fire, then burnt into an African-American caricature (complete with knotted hair-do). Later prints have reanimated Tom so that he no longer looks "black" though some network TV prints omit the gag entirely. See more »
Despite winning an Oscar the PC Brigade still managed to have this short censored to keep us sheltered people in the 21st century safe from whatever material was appropriate in 1948.
Jerry babysits little Nibbles for Thanksgiving, trouble is the baby mouse likes to eat a bit too much, and after they help themselves to Tom's milk a small war begins with Nibbles and Jerry dressed as settlers and Tom dressed as an Native American. The dinner table (set for guests unknown) is their battleground and the cutlery are their weapons.
The cuts made to this cartoon are very noticeable, but it doesn't distract too much from the overall enjoyment.
