Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Using a hunk of cheese for bait, Tom goes mouse-fishing from a waterfront pier, casting his line towards a small boat in hopes of hooking Jerry. But as usual, catching Jerry and keeping him are two entirely different things. Making Tom's job all the more difficult is a surly bulldog, in whose cavernous jaws Jerry temporarily takes refuge. When Tom turns the mutt over to a dogcatcher, it looks like his troubles are over. . . until Jerry rescues the dog, who gratefully hands the mouse and whistle and tells him to blow long and hard if he needs help. Five points to anyone who can guess what happens next.
