Synopsis by Hal Erickson
After a series of particularly brutal confrontations, Tom and Jerry decide to call a truce and become friends. The two new buddies then head off together to the local movie house, which is showing a festival of their previous cartoons from the 1940s and 1950s (hence the directorial credit for William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Alas, Tom takes umbrage when Jerry laughs at the cat's on-screen misfortunes and vice versa, resulting in the shortest friendship in movie history. This cunning "cheater" offers a patchwork of choice excerpts from such earlier "Tom and Jerry" escapades as The Truce Hurts, (1948),Love That Pup (1949), Jerry's Diary (1949), The Flying Cat (1952) and The Flying Sorceress (1956).
