Trivia

The length of Tom's dream and nightmare (after opening credits conclude to a piece of coal popping out of the nearby fireplace, landing on his rear and immediately waking Tom up from his nightmare) is 409 seconds, equaling 6 minutes & 49 seconds. 409 seconds, "cock-a-leekie", is 6:49. See more »

Goofs

Since Tom is the only cat asked to sign the forgiveness certificate, it's implied that none of the other cats ever tried to eat a mouse... which is highly unlikely. See more »

Pretty good cartoon.
22 September 2001 | by Antzy88See all my reviews

In an attempt to catch Jerry, Tom gets killed when his plan goes wrong. His spirit then ascends to the clouds, where he finds the Heavenly Express train preparing to disembark. The problem is, the ticket-seller will not let Tom pass due to his malevolent antics with Jerry, so he is given one hour to get Jerry's signature on a Certificate Of Forgiveness -- or go to Hell!

This cartoon is quite amusing, and the oversensitive ones will be pleased to know that there's little of the violence that the T&J series has often been accused of emphasising. The cartoon also has a twist at the end that I won't spoil.
