Touché, Pussy Cat! is a 1954 Tom and Jerry cartoon. With backgrounds by Robert Gentle and layouts by Dick Bickenbach.



Nibbles is sent to Jerry to be a mouseketter. But he is terrible at it, so he is forced to go home. But on the way, he gets in a fight with Tom and drowns him in wine, making Nibbles a mouseketeer. However, Nibbles accidentally stabs Jerry in the rear with his sword. This cause an angry Jerry to turn Nibbles on his lap and taking his diaper off and starts spanking him. As he is being punished, Nibbles turns to the audience and remarks,"C'est la guerre!" ("That's war!").


  • This is the sixth and last Tom and Jerry short to be nominated.
  • In the restored DVD version, Nibbles' singing "Frère Jacques" has been muted out for unknown reasons, and is replaced by the background music.
