"Fire Breathing Tom Cat" is the nineteenth episode of Tom and Jerry Tales. It is directed by Douglas McCarthy, story by Earl Kress and Richard Pursel, teleplay by Earl Kress and storyboard by David M. Stephan.



The King sends Sir Tom on a quest to slay the fire-breathing dragon, but Jerry gets in the way by waking the dragon up from its nap. The dragon swallows Tom whole but coughs him up when the cat suddenly gets a hold of the dragon's flame and breathes fire whilst inside the dragon's tummy.

After being spat out, Tom kicks the dragon in the shins and spews fire at the dragon, driving the creature out of the cave. Then, the cat turns his attention towards Jerry before chasing the mouse out of the cave and up the tree, but this does not discourage Tom. With one breath of Fire, the tree is disintigrated, and down comes Jerry, plummeting straight into Tom's mouth. Tom swallows Jerry in one single gulp, but spits out the mouse shortly after.
