Cartoon Summary:

The classic movie "Gaslight" retold, as Jerry and a nameless gray mouse (his cousin) team up to make Tom think that he's going crazy. Jerry has his cousin lower him down the chimney on a fishing cord. He smacks a sleeping Tom with a fly swatter and jerks on the cord. His cousin pulls him quickly up the chimney. Next, he tries a gun, but when he gets back on the roof, he begins to worry. Tom finds himself holding a smoking revolver, pointed at himself, wielding a knife with fake blood on his chest, and suspended from the ceiling by a rope around his neck. At cartoon's end, however, Tom discovers the dastardly plot, and he traps both mice in a bottle from which there is no escape.
