Episode Summary

Way Off Broadway / Egg Beats / Cry Uncle
Way Off Broadway: Tom and Jerry compete for people's attention (and money) as street performers. The competition gets really intense when various formats of music and instruments are used. Egg Beats: Jerry takes a trip out to a farm to get away from the noisy city. But now farmer Tom gets annoyed by the mouse's radio playing until he notices a hen is inspired to lay eggs by hearing the music. However, Jerry continues playing his tunes, which leads to an overwhelming amount of eggs, which is more than Tom can handle. Cry Uncle: Jerry's Uncle Pecos visits from out west which leads to trouble when his continuous guitar playing gets on his and Tom's nerves.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This episode is adorable! It was very funny how the music changed as Tom tried to keep up -

    This episode is adorable! I really got a kick out of watching Jerry change the radio stations on Tom\\\'s stereo which magically changed Tom\\\'s outfit - it reminded me of the old gags years ago. It was very funny how the music changed and went right along with Tom trying to keep up his dancing act. I\\\'m curious - who does the music for this show? It\\\'s the first time I\\\'ve seen animation on TV in a long time in which the music really goes with the picture like it used to in the early days of animation - really well donemoreless

    • Episode Theme: Music

    • This episode first aired on October 7, 2006 but was released on DVD 4 days earlier on October 3, 2006 - making it the first of three Tom and Jerry Tales episodes/movies to be released before airing on television.

    • The scene in "Way-Off Broadway" where Jerry keeps switching the dial on the stereo and Tom assumes a new costume and dance according to the music may be an homage to the Tex Avery short "Magical Maestro" (1952).

    • Jerry's Uncle Pecos originates from the classic Tom and Jerry cartoons. He acts relatively the same with some notable exceptions. He no longer sings "crambone" and instead sings parts of various assorted songs. He only plucks Tom's whisker once to replace a broken guitar string. He also does something new and uses one of Tom's claws for a guitar pick. Also this time, Tom and Jerry are both mutually annoyed by Uncle Pecos' singing.
