First Line of Dialogue or Text
Keep in line, folks! The movie will be letting out and then you can go in – What?!
Genre
anthropomorphic-funny animals
Characters
Tom; Jerry; Tuffy; crowd of movie-goers; concession stand workers; projectionist; cowboy and Indian actors on movie screen
Synopsis
Tom is the new head usher at the local movie theater. Jerry and Tuffy ask for two free seats.
Keywords
chase; movies; theater; usher; wreaking havoc

Indexer Notes

There is no “Tom and Jerry” title logo in the opening splash panel of this story – just the story title itself. As part of the havoc wrought upon the unsuspecting movie-goers by Tom, Jerry, and Tuffy is a half-page five-panel sequence of the film on the big screen running backwards! Not a very easy thing to do in the static medium of comics. Rectangular dialogue balloons with rounded corners.
