The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R.


The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R. is a 1967 Tom and Jerry cartoon directed by Abe Levitow and produced by Chuck Jones. The title is a pun on the 1964 spy show The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (also made by MGM), which was airing on NBC at the time.

Jerry, a secret agent, drives a micro dragster through the street of a town (the buildings in the opening shot suggest Westminster, London) and enters his secret headquarters through a cigar store Indian. His mission is to infiltrate the mansion of Tom Thrush and recover a refrigerator with a large amount of cheese. Before taking the operation out, he checks all of the weapons inside his coat. But when he tightens the belt, they fire, creating several holes on the coat as he comically grins at the "audience".

After the opening credits, Tom (notably with a gap in his teeth in this cartoon) sets some traps for Jerry, including an exploding robot female mouse, as he drives to Tom's mansion, outside of the city. These prove mostly ineffective at stopping Jerry. Tom manages to reach the safeguarded room and sets even more traps, such as mines, blades, cannons, and barbed wire. Jerry plays a tape-recorder; it sounds as if he is walking through the room. Tom waits a few seconds, then says "Boom!" Not hearing the explosions that should result from the walking, Tom runs in and gets attacked by his own traps as a result.

After that, Tom "helps" Jerry by opening the safe that keeps the refrigerator as he has lost his sanity and self-control (due to the traps that he ran over). Jerry thanks Tom by lifting his fedora up as he now has the refrigerator. Jerry straps the refrigerator to his micro-dragster and Tom crawls out the front door, in a very bad way following the incident. His hand lands on the "Play" button of Jerry's tape player, and the song "Taps" starts to play. Tom picks a flower and lays it on his chest, indicating that he is dying from the incident. The words "THE END" are seen on Jerry's number plate ("JERRY-AKIN 00 1/7", a pun on both Illya Kuryakin and James Bond) before Jerry drives off.

Tom Thrush is a parody on the credited name, Turk Thrust from the Inspector Clouseau movie, A Shot in the Dark. It is also a reference to THRUSH, the enemy of U.N.C.L.E.
