In the first of the 1960s "Tom and Jerry" cartoons produced by Chuck Jones, the skeleton of a skyscraper serves as the backdrop for a merry chase. As Tom luxuriates on his penthouse patio, far down below on the pavement a hungry Jerry searches for food. Spotting a workman's lunchbox, Jerry climbs aboard a girder, which in turn is elevated to the top floor of the building-in-progress. Tumbling off the girder, Jerry lands smack-dab on Tom, who happens to be in the mood for a delicious "mouseburger." The inevitable chase gets under way, with a full complement of wild slapstick, slow burns, double-takes and painful consequences for the voracious Tom.
