CotD: You are in for a treat if you watch “The Miss­ing Mouse” today; it is one of the few car­toons in which Tom speaks!

The Miss­ing Mouse (1953) — Tom and Jerry The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

While Jerry is loot­ing the fridge, Tom comes by and ham­mers him… He pinches Jerry’s tail in a mouse­trap, and while run­ning away, the mouse spills a bot­tle of white shoe pol­ish on himself.

Sud­denly, the radio blurts out that an exper­i­men­tal “explo­sive” white mouse has escaped from the lab. Tom sees Jerry and is fright­ened to death. Jerry takes advan­tage, and keeps try­ing to fall off shelves and such… the cat catch­ing him no mat­ter what. Tom lets irons and pianos fall on him instead of Jerry.

When the mouse falls in the sink, Tom real­izes that he’s been a fool; he hits Jerry with a ham­mer and throws him out. The real white mouse then enters, and when Tom washes the fake one and then sees Jerry, he ages 50 years! The radio then announces that the explo­sive mouse is no longer dan­ger­ous… Tom strikes him and BOOM! The cat sticks his head out of the rub­ble and says, “Don’t you believe it!”
