OK, I'm really trying to like Chuck Jones' Tom and Jerry shorts, especially after the dismal cartoons directed by Gene Deitch, but I have to admit I'm not feeling it. Jones' rendition of Tom and Jerry just doesn't look right, no matter how hard I try to convince myself, and the action is already seeming very predictable.

Is There A Doctor In The Mouse? sees Jerry cook up a potion that makes him super fast. So fast, in fact, that he can eat food right out of Tom's paws without the cat seeing who is responsible. Tom, ever resourceful, films some food being taken and slows the action down to reveal the culprit. When Jerry's potion eventually wears off, Tom tries to grab the mouse from his hole, unaware that the clever rodent has cooked up another potion, this time making him extra large. When Tom sees the giant mouse, he loses his marbles.

All of Jerry's zipping about the house eating Tom's food is extremely repetitive and soon becomes tiresome, but worst of all, it simply isn't very funny. C'mon Chuck, we know you can do better than this.
