Spike and Tyke are sleeping, when Tom and Jerry run by. Tom, intent on finding Jerry, handles Tyke thoughtlessly and gets a warning from Spike. Of course, this means Jerry hangs out with the dogs and does what he can to get Tom in trouble.Written by

There's not much original about this short. Tom chases Jerry in the yard where they encounter Spike and his son Tyke sleeping peacefully. Jerry seeks refuge in their kennels while setting up Tom as the bad guy to the irritable Spike (voiced by an uncredited actor).
Jerry comes across as much more malevolent than Tom in this one, and deserves a comeuppance. The visual humor involves stepping on rakes (fans of Sideshow Bob will be very familiar with this) and a gag I'm sure I've seen before in which Tom prods around in Spike's mouth looking for Jerry. It's mildly amusing, but far from being a standout T&J short.
