Overview
The fast and furr-ious Tom and Jerry are at it again. They cause fireworks in Yankee Doodle Mouse, hit the beach in Salt Water Tabby, tear up the links in Tee for Two, and crack the ice in Mice Follies. Tom plays piano in The Cat Concerto, plucks strings in Solid Serenade, and lends vocals to Zoot Cat, while Jerry duets in Johann Mouse. Jerry transforms in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Mouse, and becomes a Mouse in Manhattan. Meet their new friends in Jerry and the Lion, The Little Orphan, Kitty Foiled, and learn cat-trapping secrets from Jerry's Diary.
