An alley cat tries to woo a prissy penthouse cat.
The two characters (named Tom and the "Lady Cat") were integrated into MGM's Tom and Jerry series (which had just debuted a year earlier), beginning in 1943 (Tom rechristened Butch for Baby Puss) and 1946 (the "Lady Cat" christened as Toodles Galore for Springtime for Thomas), respectively.
In order of appearance:
- Toodles's penthouse
The music is composed by Scott Bradley.
Behind the scenes
- Butch's speech sounds a lot more screechy than what he and Tom and other cats sound like when they talk in Tom and Jerry. This was likely due to make the cat sound more realistic, but in doing so, Butch sounds a lot like Quacker and Yakky Duck.
