Krazy Kat and Other Cartoon Characters
Tom and Jerry are a lot like modern-day versions of Krazy Kat and Ignatz Mouse. The plots of Krazy Kat comics were always very similar--Krazy Kat was in love with Ignatz Mouse who simply threw bricks at Krazy; Offissa Pupp was in love with Krazy and often threw Ignatz in jail. In this film, Krazy Kat serenades Ignatz, but is met by flying bricks.
