Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Subtitled "Science on a Wet Afternoon", this space-age cartoons takes place on a faraway planet in the year 2565 AD. Science-happy Jerry sends a robot mouse out to capture some cheese, but Tom is alerted to this theft-in-progress by an elaborate laser device. Tom summons forth a robot cat, who chases the mouse all over a futuristic house. For the bulk of the cartoon, Tom and Jerry are essentially reduced to mere button-pushers and plug-pullers as their various electronic devices do most of the dirty work--though Tom still manages to get plenty of lumps on his own, especially during the "de-evolutionary" finale.
