268. Cue Ball Cat – William Hanna, Joseph Barbera

song-of-the-prairie

SUMMARY: Tom and Jerry play out their old rivalry across the pool table.

WHY IT’S HERE: Another in the series of sporting themed Tom and Jerry shorts, ‘Cue Ball Cat’ keeps up the high quality, again showing how Hanna and Barbera could seemingly take any sport and wring every last possible gag out of the set-up. Seeing Tom and Jerry take each other on over the pool table may sound limiting as it confines the action to such a small space but balls, racks, cues, chalks and even the pool hall drinks dispenser are made full use of for maximum laughs.
