Tom and Jerry: "The Zoot Cat"


The Zoot Cat (also referred to as simply Zoot Cat) is a 1944 American one-reel animated cartoon and is the 13th Tom and Jerry short. It was produced in Technicolor and released to theatres on February 26, 1944 by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer. The cartoon features a great deal of 1940's slang, a parody of the popular (but controversial) zoot suit, and some outdated features of 1930's popular culture.
