Storyline

Jerry heads out to his night job: drummer for an all-mouse rock band in the basement of a high-rise. They are loud enough to wake up Tom, despite his attempts to block the noise. Tom's attempts keep running him afoul of a rather mean-tempered dog. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Pretty cool, daddio!
29 May 2017 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Having hit rock bottom with Guided Mouse-Ille, director Abe Levitow bounces back with this lively, if not wholly original short that sees Tom's sleep disturbed by Jerry and his hep pals as they play loud jazz music in a basement nightclub.

The swinging music definitely helps this one to trundle along at a decent lick, but Levitow also manages to throw in some well timed laughs, the occasional genuinely inspired moment (Jerry's shower—a wrench on a water pipe—is pure genius) and suitably colourful visuals. Not the greatest entry in the entire Tom and Jerry canon, but after the wreck that was Guided Mouse-Ille, it's actually something of a minor miracle.
