High Steaks © MGM‘High Steaks’ can be summarized as ‘Down and Outing‘ at a barbecue brawl.

The film reuses the fat man from ‘Down and outing’, and like in the former film, Tom tries to get rid of Jerry.

Despite some clever gags, this film suffers greatly from the terrible animation, music etc., problems typical of the Gene Deitch Tom & Jerry cartoons. This was the second of three cartoons featuring the unnamed fat man. He would return in ‘Sorry Safari‘, later that year.

Watch ‘High Steaks’ yourself and tell me what you think:

This is Tom & Jerry cartoon No. 118
To the previous Tom & Jerry cartoon: It’s Greek To Me-Ow!
To the next Tom & Jerry cartoon: Mouse into Space
