The basis for this cartoon was Sleepy-Time Tom (1951).
The scenes in this episode of Tom streaking through the air and continuously bouncing off the roof of the circus tent, roller skating up a teeter-totter, and bouncing off a trampoline can be seen in the show's opening credit sequence.
A deleted scene finds Tom gliding out of the tent and down the freeway with a policeman in pursuit, then back to the circus, where he inadvertently performs a series of tricks. The cartoon originally ended with the same policeman arriving with a speeding ticket and T&J skating out of the circus as fast as they can!
In this series of shorts, Tom and Jerry are somewhat friends.
Jerry wears a red bow-tie and wears one again on "The Tom and Jerry Kids Show" in the '90s.
