Tom is desperate for sleep after a night of revelry with his friends, but Mammy Two-Shoes demands that he stay awake to keep the mouse out of the refrigerator. Jerry, being a clever mouse, sees his opportunity to get rid of the cat.
Mammy's stepping out for the evening (to play cards, as it turns out). While she's way, the cats will play: in this case, Tom and three of his alley cat friends. Their music keeps Jerry awake, so he takes action. His first strike silences them only long enough for him to return to his hole. They lure him out by restarting the music, and the chase is on: four against one. Jerry holds out for a while, but is soon tied with the cord from the venetian blinds, and the cats resume. Jerry manages to crawl to the phone and call Mammy, who comes running and throws all four cats out. But Jerry's peace is short-lived: Mammy decides to salvage what's left of the evening by listening to some music.Written by

You can see Mammy Two-Shoes' face for two frames as she runs back to the house. See more »
When the piano-playing cat slides Jerry down the piano, he is sliding Jerry from the right of the keyboard to the left of the keyboard (high notes to low notes). However, the sound coming from the piano appears to be the opposite of what was showing (i.e. low notes to high notes). See more »

Hello? Yes, this is the Lucky Seven Saturday Night Bridge Club. Who? This is her.
A party? At *my* house? Ex-*cuse* me!

A version of this cartoon exists with Mammy Two-Shoes rotoscoped into a young white Irish woman that was done by the Sib Tower 12 Productions in the 1960s. Another version was made in the 1990s with the original footage, but with Mammy Two-Shoes' voice re-dubbed to sound less sterotypical and offensive. Not only that, there's a *third* version that exists which matches the 1960s rotoscoped version with the original Lilolian Randolph soundtrack (inexplicably matching the stereotypical Black voice to the image of the White lady).

When Mammy Two Shoes leaves the house to go to her Lucky Seven Saturday Night Bridge Club, her mischievous cat Tom seizes the opportunity to host a wild party for his alley-cat pals. Jerry the mouse, who is trying to get to sleep, attempts to stop the commotion...
The cat vs mouse action in Saturday Evening Puss is fairly routine, but what makes this cartoon slightly more memorable is the sight of Tom and his pals partying like crazy, the hairy hepcats generating some seriously groovy jazz tunes (could their antics have been the inspiration for a similar scene in Disney's The Aristocats?).
An ironic ending sees Tom and his friends thrown out of the house by Mammy, much to Jerry's delight, only for the mouse to have his sleep disturbed when Mammy puts on a record at top volume
