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

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 »

Very good Tom and Jerry-I love Uncle Pecos!!!
29 August 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This cartoon introduces (for the only appearance, sadly) Jerry's Uncle Pecos (voiced by Shug Fisher, who also plays the "gee-tar" here, marvelously) who is gonna be a star on TV. A word of advice: stay on his good side. You do not want to rile this boy at all! I wonder if Uncle Pecos is the father to Jerry's cousin Muscles? Oh, well, I digress. The end of this is hilarious and there is an incredible guitar solo that Uncle Pecos does for an encore. Most highly recommended.
