Well, here's another case of lazy studio executive at MGM (or whomever) who decide to issue a cartoon in which they don't have to use much creativity or brainpower to write because almost all of it is just a collection of past cartoons.
In this case, we get previous Tom and Jerry episodes such as "Solid Serenade," "Fit To Be Tied," and "Cat Fishin.'" Those three are rolled into this one in which Tom shows film footage to some of his pals, like the alley-cat "Butch." Only the beginning where Tom invites his pals and starts rolling the projector, and a small bit at the end, are new material.
Once again, this kind of cartoon is either very good or a total waste, depending on whether you have seen these previous cartoons. If you haven't, you'll get a lot of laughs out of this, especially if you root for Tom. But if have seen these, then this is pointless.
