Saturday Evening Puss is the 48th of Tom and Jerry shorts. It was directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera who created the cat and mouse duo ten years earlier. The cartoon was produced by Fred Quimby, scored by Scott Bradley and animated by Ed Barge, Kenneth Muse, Irven Spence and Ray Patterson.



After Mammy goes out to her Lucky Seven Saturday Night Bridge Club, Tom takes advantage of the situation by inviting Butch, Lightning and Topsy over for a party. Turning on a record player, Tom plays some "hot music" very loudly, the cats accompanying it with some instruments at their disposal. The music causes Jerry, who's trying to sleep in his hole, to attempt a halt to the noise-making. During the resulting chase, the cats tie Jerry in a windowsill string, then resume the partying. In anger, Jerry manages to dial on the phone the number of where Mammy is playing bridge with her friends. Calling her up anonymously, Jerry notifies her of Tom's activities. She immediately rushes back to her house and throws Tom and his friends out. Grumbling on how the cats have ruined her evening, Mammy decides to relax by playing the same song Tom and his friends were playing to, much to Jerry's dismay.


  • This is one episode where Butch, Lightning and Topsy are depicted as Tom's friends.
  • In "Hatch up your trouble", the magazine Tom is seen reading is called Saturday Evening Puss.
  • When this cartoon aired on CBS, Mammy Two Shoes was replaced by a white teenaged girl going out to see her boyfriend.
  • Mammy's face is revealed in a shot of her running home, albeit fleetingly.
  • If you listen closely when Jerry is screaming at Tom, you can hear what he's actually saying "Stop! I'm in my little room over there! I'm trying to get on some sleep, but you guys are here with your blah, blah, blah, blah!"
  • The title is a parody of the magazine "Saturday Evening Post".
