While Tom is asleep, Jerry gets into a speedy car, after the cheese he noticed, but it was traced by a radar, that woke Tom up, from a nap, is a ball, with originally had a smiling face, after the ball hit the radar's smiling face head then appears in severe pain, like an upper-cut when somebody hits someone else's chin. Tom was woke up, after water was poured over his head. Later, Tom then succeeds in catching Jerry and shoots Jerry away to the moon, where there is numerous tastes of cheese and Jerry is happier there. Tom then goes wild, shooting numerous black holes, into the space station (almost causing it to collapse) and was caught and forced by astronauts to re-patch the holes he shot, in excitement.

Goofs

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.

In space, no-one can hear you yawn.
29 May 2017 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

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?
