Catty-Cornered is a 1966 Tom and Jerry cartoon directed by Abe Levitow and produced by Chuck Jones.


Jerry lives in the wall between two apartments, one where Tom lives and the other where Lightning lives.Lightning and Tom show that they are out to get him.

Jerry screws up his courage and steals two of Tom's whiskers. He is attacked but tricks Tom into smacking Lightning. He punches back and both cats assume Jerry is a "super-mouse". Jerry trips an arrow aimed at a cheese wheel, it strips the other cat of its fur. Tom ends up furless as well. An armed conflict escalates when Jerry directs the cat's fire at each other.

Tom rolls a lighted firework into Jerry's hole, and Jerry rolls it back out under Tom. Tom hears it hissing under him and raises himself such that he is dazed, but not hurt, by the explosion. Both cats then arm a hand grenade and throw it into the mouse's hole, but they hit each other and return to their owners. The two grenades go back and forth until the explosion of them occurs in each of their users' hands, damaging almost the entire wall. The cats give up and they then move out going to Paris; Jerry whistles and follows them.
