Using cheese as bait, Tom lures Jerry into a trap--or more specifically, a sandwich. But the "mouseburger" is promptly stolen by a passing hawk, leading to a battle royal between the cagey cat and the larcenous bird. First Tom gets the upper hand, then the hawk, while Jerry manages to subject both of his pursuers to all manner of comic mayhem. Things take a kinky turn when, in an effort to distract the hawk, Tom dresses up as a sexy female bird (in a sarong, no less). Now hungry for a LOT more than mere food, the amorous hawk ardently pursues the cross-dressing Tom, a chase that ends only when the couple literally "ties the knot." The wall-to-wall musical score includes snatches of "St. Louis Blues", "My Blue Heaven"and the familiar MGM cartoon leitmotif "You're a Sweetheart".
