Thanks to the crazy Mammy character, this classic short and first appearance of Tom & Jerry won't be seeing a wide release on DVD any time soon. Originally Tom was named Jasper and Jerry was named JInx though he wasn't called by his name onscreen. Initially Tom torments Jerry, until Jerry learns that he can torment Tom by attempting to break every glass, porcelain and ceramic item in the house. I really like how furry and cat-like Tom looks in this one, but the real treat for me is Jerry. He's so damn cute and lovable yet he's a total asshole! Not only that, but we cheer him on because he's tormenting Tom the bully.
The torturer becomes the tortured!
Who knew this cute little rascal was such a dick?!
Enjoy the show!
