Historical Note

"Tom and Jerry" is an American cartoon series created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera in 1940 for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The classic series features a cat named Tom and a mouse named Jerry who perpetually play at a literal game of cat and mouse, with Tom generally being thwarted by Jerry.

The "Tom and Jerry" short "Johann Mouse" premiered on March 21, 1953 and features the duo in mid 19th century Vienna, living in the home of the composer Johann Strauss (which the title plays off of). The plot revolves around Tom attempting to catch Jerry by learning the piano like his master, which Jerry loves to dance to. The short culminates in a performance by the duo at the court of Emperor Franz Joseph I.
