The space station is depicted as a giant roulette wheel with the numbers running in numerical sequence; the highest number visible is 41. American roulette wheels have only 38 slots, numbered 1-36 with two slots numbered 0 and 00. Non-American wheels have 37 slots, omitting the 00. The numbers are not consecutive; on a double-zero wheel, the order is (reading clockwise): 0-28-9-26-30-11-7-20-32-17-5-22-34-15-3-24-36-13-1-00-27-10-25-29-12-8-19-31-18-6-21-33-16-4-23-35-14-2; on a single-zero wheel, the order is (also reading clockwise) 0-32-15-19-4-21-2-25-17-34-6-27-13-36-11-30-8-23-10-5-24-16-33-1-20-14-31-9-22-18-29-7-28-12-35-3-26.

With the space race on in real life, this late-'60s Tom and Jerry cartoon sees the cat and mouse leave planet Earth for life on a space station (that looks like a giant roulette wheel) where they carry on their usual cat and mouse antics, albeit with the aid of jet-packs, robots, lasers and ray guns.
Instead of being out of this world, O-Solar-Meow, directed by Abe Levitow, is mechanical and devoid of atmosphere. The animation is flat and lacking in detail and the gags are far from original (Tom trying on an Ajax flying belt with disastrous results is pure Wile.E.Coyote). Oh well, only eight more cartoons to go and I can focus my attention elsewhere
N.B. Is it just me or does that window behind Tom's harpoon look very similar to those seen on the death star in Star Wars?
