Cartoon Production Information:
One of the episodes which Tom and Jerry are adversaries again.
The tennis and golf sequences can be linked to the classic MGM Tom & Jerry shorts Tennis Chumps (1949) and Tee For Two (1945). Tom & Jerry compete in another tennis match in Episode #80-13, "The Tennis Menace," which is a remake of Tennis Chumps.
The first of the sports-themed New Tom & Jerries, which pictured Tom as a dirty-tricks competitor always willing to stop at nothing to trounce Jerry in any form of sports competition. (For many diehard classic Tom & Jerry fans, this seems to be the '70s series' only saving grace!) Three further sports-themed New Tom & Jerry cartoons continued in this vein: #80-11, "The Super Bowler," #80-13, "The Tennis Menace," and #80-25, "The Super Cyclists."
Most of the animation for the scene in which Tom tries to pole vault is used in the opening sequence. The animation in the barbell lifting scene is also used in the opening sequence; the trimming of the towel that Tom wipes his hands on, however, is a different shade of blue.
