Storyline

Mammy's stepping out for the evening (to play cards, as it turns out). While she's way, the cats will play: in this case, Tom and three of his alley cat friends. Their music keeps Jerry awake, so he takes action. His first strike silences them only long enough for him to return to his hole. They lure him out by restarting the music, and the chase is on: four against one. Jerry holds out for a while, but is soon tied with the cord from the venetian blinds, and the cats resume. Jerry manages to crawl to the phone and call Mammy, who comes running and throws all four cats out. But Jerry's peace is short-lived: Mammy decides to salvage what's left of the evening by listening to some music. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Goofs

When the piano-playing cat slides Jerry down the piano, he is sliding Jerry from the right of the keyboard to the left of the keyboard (high notes to low notes). However, the sound coming from the piano appears to be the opposite of what was showing (i.e. low notes to high notes). See more »

Alternate Versions

A version of this cartoon exists with Mammy Two-Shoes rotoscoped into a young white Irish woman that was done by the Sib Tower 12 Productions in the 1960s. Another version was made in the 1990s with the original footage, but with Mammy Two-Shoes' voice re-dubbed to sound less sterotypical and offensive. Not only that, there's a *third* version that exists which matches the 1960s rotoscoped version with the original Lilolian Randolph soundtrack (inexplicably matching the stereotypical Black voice to the image of the White lady).

Loved The Music In Here!
1 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Anyone who loves some "swinging' jazz," will lose this cartoon.

The maid is stepping out for a hot night on the town. I least I got that impression with the colorful dress, garter belt and the rest. I laughed when she tested her necklace, the one with green and red jewels. She hit the green and the word "go" lit up, red for "stop!"

The moment she's out door, Tom rushes to the window, whistles to his buddies out near the garbage can and holds up a sign that reads, "O.K. For the Party." They yell "yippee" and literally fly through the window. In no time, the place is jumping. The hot jazz music in here, by the way, is fantastic! These cats know how to party!

Unfortunately, the music is keeping the mouse awake and little Jerry turns out to be party pooper. The rest of the cartoon involves his attempts at silencing the music and the cats silencing him! There are excellent sight gags in this one....and some justice at the very end.
