For once, Jerry is not the spot of affection in his cartoons. Instead, we almost feel a bit of anger towards the mouse. In one of Hanna-Barbara's "Mouseketeer" cartoons, Jerry plays a captain Mouseketeer who keeps sending his young protege (Nibbles, to be exact) out with love letters to his beloved Lilli. Of course, every time Nibbles leaves the hole, he's confronted by Tom who wants to fight. This keeps up for a while, with Nibbles coming back more and more worse for wear. Finally, he delivers a letter to Jerry that says Lilli is leaving him. Jerry is heartbroken... for about two seconds, and pulls out a picture of his NEW girl-mouse. Nibbles is sent on another mission, but this time, he's had enough. "Engaurde? Engaurde? PHEW!" he spits at Tom as he walks down the lane to deliver the letter.
This is one of Hanna-Barbara's better Tom & Jerry cartoons, especially since it took a break from the basic "Tom chases Jerry, Jerry fights back" style we all grew to love. An absolute favorite of mine, no doubt about it.
