Adrift in the ocean, Tom and Jerry (not the cat-and-mouse duo) wash ashore on the coast of Spain. Making their way to an outdoor café, the boys are enchanted by several dancing senoritas, one of whom can REALLY shake her castanets. Ultimately T&J run afoul of the surly restaurant manager, who forces our heroes into a bullfight (logical plot construction is not this cartoon's strong suit). Toreadors Tom and Jerry end up taking on a veritable battalions of toros, who perform a few acrobatic tricks before closing in for the "moment of truth." The ending is even wackier than the rest of the cartoon, if such a thing is possible. Musical selections include "In a Little Spanish Town" and "La Cumparasita".
