While being pursued by Tom, Jerry takes time out to rescue Spike the bulldog from the dog catcher. The grateful hound promises eternal friendship and devotion to Jerry: "Any time ya ever needs me, just whistle." Sure enough, the next time Tom shows up to menace Jerry, Spike rushes to the mouse's defense, grabbing the hapless cat and threatening to "pound ya into pieces" if he dares lay a paw on Jerry. The situation is milked for all it's worth and then some, until Tom resorts to desperate measures--namely, a glue-soaked gumball--to keep Jerry from whistling. Scott Bradley's exuberant musical score includes snatches of such tunes as "I'm Sitting on Top of the World" and "Spreadin' Rhythm Around."
