On Hogan's Alley, all the cats are afraid of Muscles Mouse. He pounds them at will. His cousin Jerry sends a letter asking for help dealing with Tom. Muscles immediately sets out for Jerry's and upon arrival shows Tom who's boss. Tom doesn't go gently: he works out with weights to build his strength, he uses craft to launch an attack, and he calls in reinforcements. Is Muscles up to the challenge? And what will happen to Jerry when Muscles has to go home?Written by
Just before Tom drops the bowling ball on Muscles, just after he starts to lift it in preparation for dropping it, the ball disappears for a split-second, as if someone had forgotten to put in an animation cel containing it. See more »

Jerry's Cousin is not my favourite Tom and Jerry cartoon, but it is really entertaining and I definitely recommend it. Tom and Jerry are both great, but the real star of the show is Muscles, Jerry's cousin. He is quite small in stature but he is so strong, and it isn't long before Tom himself gets on the wrong side of him with hilarious consequences. While the story is a little predictable, the colourful animation, fun music and wonderful visual gags more than compensate as do Muscles's threats to Tom. Overall, this is not my absolute favourite or what I consider the best, but I had a wonderful time watching this cartoon. If you love a cartoon with great visual gags especially, you have a winner with Jerry's Cousin. 9/10 Bethany Cox
