"The Zoot Cat" (fragment), (also referred to as simply Zoot Cat) is a 1944 American one-reel animated cartoon and is the 13th Tom and Jerry short. It was produced in Technicolor and released to theatres on February 26, 1944 by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer. The cartoon features a great deal of 1940's slang, a parody of the popular (but controversial) zoot suit, and some outdated features of 1930s popular culture. Interesting facts: Cartoon often mistakenly referred to as "The Zoot Suit". In 1951, the start-up screen was replaced with a new one. Displayed the original style with its colors costume "Zoot". This is one of the rare occasions when Tom and Jerry speak. Color paws Toots changes throughout the entire episode. Tom phrase "What's jumpin 'chick?" ("What is it, baby?") is a parody of the famous phrase rabbit Bugs Bunny "What's up Doc?" ("What is it, Doc?"). Tom again pronounces his "Fervent explanation of" in the episode "Solid Serenade".
