Cut Scenes

  • The scene where Jerry and Nibbles disguise themselves as an African American mother and child respectively was cut from TV airings. This results in a weird cut where Jerry and Nibbles are being chased by Tom then suddenly jump cuts to Tom impacting on a frying pan held by Jerry.


  • First appearance of Nibbles (who was later known as Tuffy).
