Storyline

Jerry, fed up with Tom's harassment, decides to become a mouse astronaut and go off into space, where there are no cats. He packs his valise. Tom sees him leaving and tries to keep him from going by shooting him, striking him, and blowing him up with a bomb. Jerry goes to the astronauts' training center, takes a series of tests, and is declared fit for service. Meanwhile, Tom has become an alcoholic tramp. He hides in a pipe and soon finds himself being shot into space on a rocket. Tom gets into the cabin and harasses Jerry, who's inside. Tom is ejected and reaches another spaceship whose astronaut is a Soviet dog! Tom is hit by a shower of meteorites and falls through space, landing on the ground after a dizzying descent. There he finds Jerry, proudly sporting an astronaut's license. Tom sets it on fire. Jerry starts to chase him, and Tom takes to his heels. Written by Jonathan D. H. Parshall <parshall@citcom.net>

Probably the best T&J short of the Deitch era
10 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I love the drawings, even if they are low in quality. The film starts off horridly when we see Jerry reading about the Astro-Mouse program and Tom sneaks up, a gun in his hand, and he fires right at Jerry's head. I saw this cartoon yesterday, and it is indeed a fine one. I love the part when Jerry is launched into space, the rest of the rocket blows off and all that is left is Jerry in his capsule. The story is very predictable, as all "toon stories are". The sound effects are very low-res and out of style. I like this title because it is involved in a genre I am obsessed with: an animated science-fiction short.

***=Good
