This is a throw-back to the 1940s-era style of zany, fast-paced animation. Mammy-Two-Shoes is tired of lazy Tom sleeping while Jerry pilfers food. Dismayed by Tom's apathy concerning evicting Jerry from the house, Mammy-Two-Shoes purchases a mail-order robotic cat, Mechano, "the cat of tomorrow," which dispatches the mouse with a ruthless precision. The robo-cat is super-efficient to the point of destroying the house with all of its Rube Goldberg capabilities. Jerry finally wins the war by sending a series of wind-up toy mice to run through the house, and the robo-cat goes wild! A dispirited Tom leaves home, convinced that his career as a mouse-catcher is over. After several thwarted attempts, Jerry re-enters the house and succeeds in dismantling the robotic assailant, even though Tom accidentally swallows part of the mechanical feline's workings. Sending in some mechanical mice, a mischievous Jerry programs Tom on a path of destruction around the house as the shrieking maid helplessly watches the unfolding anarchy.
