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

Nibbles' second appearance after The Milky Waif (1946) and the first Tom and Jerry cartoon in which Nibbles and Jerry work as a team against Tom. See more »
Also, in the original version, when Tom throws a butter knife to stop Jerry from running away, this scene was slightly modified for some prints in which Tom throws not a butter knife, but a fork. See more »
This short features Nibbles as Jerry's nephew. In some other cartoons he's referred to by other names and is generally SUPER-cutesy, but in this case the little white mouse is a little more entertaining and less cloying. This time, the white mouse has an amazing appetite--eating a whole orange at once! Well, after getting him to cough it up, Jerry takes Nibbles for some real food. And, being Thanksgiving, they dress up in costumes and raid the humans' feast. But, these cute little mice dressed as pilgrims are foiled by Tom who appears in Indian head dress. And, the rest of the cartoon consists of Tom trying to kill the little rodents. An exceptional cartoon with some good laughs and excellent animation.
