Storyline

The Bide-a-wee Mouse Home sends two orphans over for a hike with Scoutmaster Jerry. Trouble is, the orphans, dressed as Indians, want to shoot arrows and tomahawk-chop everything in sight, and especially Tom, who quickly gets scalped and has the end of his tail chopped off. He captures Jerry; this, of course, means war, for which the tots paint dozens of badminton shuttlecocks as a fake army. They also paint a fierce face on the sleeping dog. Ultimately, they get Tom to leave a trail of gunpowder, which they light, destroying the garage. Tom signals a truce, and they all smoke a peace pipe, but the smoke comes out of Tom's ears instead of his mouth. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Crazy Credits

After Tom raises a white flag, surrendering to Jerry & the two Indian mice, all four smoke a peace pipe, Jerry & the two mice "puff" the pipe correctly. When it is Tom' turn, the smoke apparently went down the wrong side of his esophagus. When Tom tries to puff & no smoke comes out of his mouth, he accidentally swallowed the smoke. Three seconds later, three puffs come out of his left ear & three come out of his right eat (at the very same time) apparently to spell out THE END. See more »

This one has me feeling sorry for Tom.
20 November 2016 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

After Quacker the duckling, Nibbles the baby mouse is my least favourite of Jerry's sidekicks. In Two Little Indians, Jerry, a scoutmaster, is put in charge of two orphan mice, both of whom resemble Nibbles in Red Indian costumes. I should, by all rights, hate this cartoon, but there is so much inventive violence (most of which is perpetrated against Tom, minding his own business for a change), that I can't help but enjoy it.

As Jerry tries to control the little mice, with very little success, Tom gets an arrow in his butt, two in his nose, is scalped, has the end of his tail cut off, and gets hit with a frying pan (resulting in his nose being pushed inside his gun barrel). Jerry joins in with the fun, belting Tom over the head with a post box. Eventually, after being blown up with gunpowder, Tom has no choice but to smoke a peace pipe with the mice, but even this doesn't go right for the poor cat.
