A Spanish cat is more interested in playing flamenco guitar than trying to catch the mouse El Magnifico (Jerry). Tom arrives from the States with world champion mouse-catching credentials to have a go. He quickly catches El Magnifico, but the mouse keeps returning. Then Tom acts as the bull, succumbing to Jerry's matador. Both Tom and Jerry speak (in Spanish).Written by

We are in Madrid, Spain, where an orange housecoat is unable to get rid of the mouse in the house. The cat is on the sofa one afternoon, playing flamenco music on his guitar. The mouse hears it, and comes out of his hole (where it says, "El Magnifico" over the outside of it) and begins dancing. The housewife comes out and is not happy. She chastises the orange cat (it's not Tom) for not getting rid of the mouse and for being lazy. The cat replies, "No one, absolutely no one can catch 'El Magnifico.'"
"Is that so,? says the woman. "Read this." She hands his a telegram that says, "Arriving today from the U.S.A. Guaranteed to catch El Magnifico. Signed, Tom, Olympic and World Champion Mouse Catcher."
Tom then arrives at the house, complete with trophy (with a flashing neon message on it!), string of medals and a translation book. The woman is thrilled and leaves the house, confident Tom will solve the problem.
Well, Tom is good but the mouse is, indeed, too tough as we see in this entertaining animated short. Hilarious, no, but it's funny and it's a "cute" cartoon. I liked the music, too.
(Note: There is an inference here that this 'toon is done is Spanish. That's not true; most of it is in English, at least on the DVD, "Whiskers Away," that I have where this is included.)
