Tom and Jerry [Western Logo 2 1970s]
Genre
anthropomorphic-funny animals
Characters
Tom; Jerry; Tuffy: Jesse James (little kid); starving hound dog; mailman; various other neighborhood residents
Synopsis
Tom’s latest scheme is to create a new culinary dish that will make him rich. Alas, his concoction causes a temporary stiffening-paralysis in its victims.
Keywords
food; get-rich-quick; paralysis; recipe; series of mishaps

Indexer Notes

Rectangular dialogue balloons with rounded corners. Lettering or script error: Tom asks the little kid, Jesse James – “Say, did you see Tom and Jerry around anywhere?”, when it clearly should have been “Jerry and Tuffy” since Tom is asking the question. Non-sequitur visual gag: While monologuing to Jerry and Tuffy on the grandeur of his culinary genius, a snake pops its head out of Tom’s basket of ingredients. Without missing a verbal beat, Tom bops the snake on the head with a mallet, and tosses it into his latest simmering recipe.
