Tom is listening to a radio chef's recipe for fish stew when he realizes the key ingredient is right there in the home goldfish bowl. Jerry has been treating this fish as a pet, though, and won't let Tom get away with his plan, saving the fish in a glass of water and a teacup, while Tom abandons his stew plans in favor of a frying pan, a grill, the toaster, and a pressure cooker.Written by

This Tom & Jerry cartoon from MGM was included as a special feature on the disc for the original (and best) "Angels in the Outfield". Like so many MGM and Warner classic films, several shorts are included on the disc--making them excellent values. The short is most likely also included in various Tom & Jerry collections.
Like the Tom & Jerry cartoons of the 1950s, this one is directed by the Hannah-Barbera team. Now back then, they made some wonderful quality films--with quality animation. While this might offend you for saying it, by the 1960s, they'd given up on quality and began churning out cartoons where the animation quality was often horrible. It's sad, as "Jerry and the Goldfish" shows what they could do when they cared and put all their energy into it.
Like the title suggests, this film is about Jerry and a goldfish. Naturally, the two are friends and Tom wants to eat them both. Throughout the film, Jerry works to save the poor little fish and thwart dumb old Tom. And, not surprisingly, things go as usual--which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The film features lots of good old fashioned cartoon violence--which might explain why I enjoyed it immensely.
They don't make 'em like they used to--funny, well animated and with rich and attractive backgrounds.
