Storyline

Jerry's eccentric uncle, Pecos, a Texas mouse, comes to spend the night with him before his musical performance on television the next day. He decides to rehearse with his guitar for the performance but each time he plays, one of his guitar strings snaps off. Fortunately, he is able to replace them by plucking off one of Tom's whiskers each time. Tom is rather reluctant about this and tries to hide to protect his remaining whiskers from Uncle Pecos.

Trivia

The title refers to Pecos Bill, the mythical cowboy used in American Western tall tales that were first published in 1917 by Edward O'Reilly for The Century Magazine. See more »

Goofs

After Uncle Pecos' first guitar string broke, the first whisker Uncle Pecos jerked off of Tom was his Tom's bottom right. Second was Tom's top right whisker. Third was Tom's left middle. Fourth was Tom's right middle. Fifth, Tom jerked off of himself, must have been his own left top or left bottom. During Uncle Pecos's singing, the whisker that Uncle Pecos, off of Tom through the television screen, was Tom's right middle whisker, which was the fourth, Uncle Pecos plucked off of Tom, while he was in Tom and Jerry's house.

Crazy Credits

In the cartoon's final minute, while Jerry's Uncle Pecos sings Froggie Went A-Courtin' song, a string on his guitar broke. Tom immediately started laughing. While Tom was laughing, Uncle Pecos quickly pulled off Tom's last whisker, by reaching through Tom and Jerry's television screen and completes the song, as the cartoon concludes. See more »

The greatest
8 June 2005 | by kamsteeleSee all my reviews

Although I am now 48 Years old, and have seen "Pecos Pest" countless times over the Years it is "still" funny as all get out, and even my Children just love this Cartoon. If I am on my out of the Door and I happen to see that it is on, whatever it is will have to wait for those 7 Minutes. It is I would say my number One favorite Tom & Jerry Cartoon. I also was intrigued by the person doing the voice of Uncle Pecos, and I always told my best friend I thought it was the guy who portrayed Shorty Kellems on the Beverly Hillbillies TV Show. Low and behold I found out Uncle Pecos was indeed voiced by Shug Fisher (aka George Shug Fisher)who did portray Shorty.
