A bulldog aptly named Killer stands guard over the home of a wealthy female cat. This, however, does not dissuade the lovestruck Tom from invading Killer's turf. Armed with a bass fiddle, Tom proceeds to serenade his lady love with a swingin' rendition of "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby?", thereby rousing Jerry from his slumbers. Unable to tolerate Tom's cat-erwauling, Jerry bombards the would-be Romeo with a barrage of boobytrapped pies. The chase is on, with the aforementioned Killer (now equipped with a new set of pointed dentures) eventually joining the fray. In addition to singing, the normally speechless Tom does a lot of talking in this one, at one point spewing forth a dead-on Charles Boyer imitation. The musical score includes such MGM standards as "You Were Meant for Me".
