Something's Kosher Here

The Army, the Navy and Buffalo Bill Cody come to the rescue of Tom and Jerry in Redskin Blues (1932). Cody’s there because T. & J. are in the Old West and have been tied to stakes by Indians.

Cody ropes the Indian Chief.

Oy! A Jewish Indian! (This is an era when they populated vaudeville).

The chief opens up a box.

What’s this? A mouse, you say? The gag here is that Buffalo Bill Cody is afraid of a mouse.

Well, actually, everyone is afraid of the mouse. The cavalry, etc. makes a hasty in one of many bits of cycle animation which litters this cartoon.

John Foster and George Stallings get the “by” credit this time and Gene Rodemich comes up with a lot of snare drum and xylophone music.
