Great clips, but at the end of the day it's still a lazy compilation.
Tom invites his alley cat pals over for an evening of home movies, the films on show being excerpts from several previous Tom and Jerry cartoons in which Spike the bulldog is made to look a fool.
Smarty Cat is one of those lazy compilations made on the cheap, and as such probably won't hold that much appeal for those who have already seen the featured cartoons in full. Of course, the bits shown are all great, and guarantee laughs (the snippet from Fit to be Tied is hilarious), but in the end this is still a clip show and can't really be rated much higher than 5/10. My advice: watch the full length cartoons instead.
