    The Cat and the Mermouse Tom and Jerry – Tom Cat Layout Drawing (MGM, 1949). Tom has an underwater adventure (or so he thinks), in this Hanna and Barbera-directed short, which was released on 9/3/1949. In this rare 1940s original 12 field layout drawing from the cartoon, Tom has just used a pipe against a "needle nose" shark; find this scene at the 6:07 mark in online viewings. Tom is drawn in red pencil against graphite markings meant to represent underwater motion. Tom's figure size is 5.75", while the "10 field" layout image has an overall size of 9.75" x 7". Very Good condition with minor handling wear.
