Puss Gets The Boot (1940) — Tom and Jerry The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

In close-up, Jerry the mouse runs from his oppo­nent. The cam­era cuts back, and we see that Tom the cat (called Jasper in this film only) has already caught the mouse, who is run­ning on the spot, his tail held by the cat’s claw.

While Tom toys with his prey, Jerry gets away, lead­ing to a num­ber of gags which result in the break­ing of a vase. Mammy-Two-Shoes warns Tom that if he breaks one more thing, she’ll throw him out of the house. Jerry hears this; nat­u­rally, this is an oppor­tu­nity that the mouse can­not pass up.

To keep Tom at bay, Jerry men­aces every break­able object in the house. Tom (whom Mammy calls “you good-for-nothin’ cheap fur coat”) does his best to save them, but ulti­mately fails and gets the boot.
