Storyline

The Bide-a-wee Mouse Home sends two orphans over for a hike with Scoutmaster Jerry. Trouble is, the orphans, dressed as Indians, want to shoot arrows and tomahawk-chop everything in sight, and especially Tom, who quickly gets scalped and has the end of his tail chopped off. He captures Jerry; this, of course, means war, for which the tots paint dozens of badminton shuttlecocks as a fake army. They also paint a fierce face on the sleeping dog. Ultimately, they get Tom to leave a trail of gunpowder, which they light, destroying the garage. Tom signals a truce, and they all smoke a peace pipe, but the smoke comes out of Tom's ears instead of his mouth. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Crazy Credits

After Tom raises a white flag, surrendering to Jerry & the two Indian mice, all four smoke a peace pipe, Jerry & the two mice "puff" the pipe correctly. When it is Tom' turn, the smoke apparently went down the wrong side of his esophagus. When Tom tries to puff & no smoke comes out of his mouth, he accidentally swallowed the smoke. Three seconds later, three puffs come out of his left ear & three come out of his right eat (at the very same time) apparently to spell out THE END. See more »

didn't feel like a tom vs. Jerry cartoon
3 June 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Jerry the mouse is going to take two little orphan mice on a camping trip as their scoutmaster, but they only want to act like Indians attacking a dog, a canary, and finally Tom the cat, who fights back only to get tortured more. Less a Tom vs. Jerry short than it was a Tom vs. two mice tale. And it my mind it was worse because of it. Not to say it wasn't funny, as it was. It sadly just wasn't as good as most Tom and Jerry animated shorts tend to be.This humorous animated short can be found on disc 2 of Warner Brother's 2-DVD Spotlight Collection set.
