Storyline

This Tom and Jerry cartoon is set in 17th century France. Tom, who is a soldier in the King's castle, is assigned to guard the food laid out on a banquet table. Jerry and a smaller mouse companion, two wandering "mouseketeers," make the situation miserable for Tom as they abscond with (and occasionally eat) all the food they can.

Goofs

Nibbles sings the song "Alouette" while he is making a sandwich. The song is French-Canadian, not French, and was not published until the latter half of the 19th century, well after the 18th-century setting of this cartoon, making this anachronistic as well. See more »

C'est magnifique!
9 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Although I have loved all of the Mousketeer Tom and Jerry cartoons, this could very well be the best of all. Everything about The Two Mousketeers is simply wonderful. The story is a nice one, with Tom as a guard guarding the food as his life depends on it and Jerry and Nibbles try to thwart him. The rest, well you have to see it for yourself. The animation is simply great, lively backgrounds and all the characters are well drawn, in fact this could very well be the best-looking of the Mousketeer shorts. The music is wonderful, I loved the title song, so spirit-rousing and makes you sing along. The sight gags come by thick and fast and are simply delightful, every single one of them work, and the minimal dialogue("touche pussy cat") is good too. The characters are a lot of fun, Tom and Jerry still maintain their unique personalities, while Nibbles is funny and adorable. Overall, a truly excellent Tom and Jerry cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
