About to inflict great bodily harm upon Jerry, Tom is interrupted by a radio broadcast starring lovable old Uncle Dudley, who announces that it is "Be Kind to Animals" week. Immediately turning over a new leaf, Tom goes out of his way to make friends with Jerry--at least until he takes a peek at the mouse's diary, which chronicles the many, many times that Jerry has gotten the better of Tom in a painful fashion. Jerry's Diary is what is known in the trade as a "cheater", largely comprised of lengthy excerpts from such earlier "Tom and Jerry" cartoons as Tee for Two, Mouse Trouble Solid Serenade and The Yankee Doodle Mouse (Ironically, Jerry's Diary would itself be excerpted in the 1966 "cheater" Matinee Mouse).
