Love Me, Love My Mouse is a 1966 Tom and Jerry cartoon produced by Chuck Jones, who co-directed with Ben Washam. The title Love Me, Love My Mouse is a play-on-words of the phrase "Love me, love my dog." It is the first Tom and Jerry cartoon to be animated by Phil Roman.

This short is one of the very few in which Tom emerges victorious over Jerry.


Tom, in love with Toots, goes to her house, carrying Jerry in a ring box to woo her. Tom presents Jerry to his love interest, but Jerry pretends to be frightened of Tom and cuddles up with Toots, who instantly sympathises with him, taking sides with the mouse.

Later, Jerry waves Tom and then aims to gain more sympathy from Toots by framing Tom to jumping into his mouth repeatedly in 3 times and Toots coming to Jerry's rescue. And later, Tom tells the Toots wants to eat something but refuses and smash the door with his hand before Jerry laughs with him, causing an angry Tom to grab Jerry and attempts to drop the concrete block flattens with him, but Toots interferes and causing Tom to drop the block onto himself.

In the next morning, Toots is putting baby powder on Jerry while a bandaged Tom hobbles to the table. Toots kisses Jerry, but while doing so, she soon finds that in addition to being quite adorable, Jerry is also quite tasty. She suddenly has a change of heart and decides to eat Jerry, now taking sides with Tom, who reacts with joy. Toots blows a kiss to Tom (as though to thank him for giving her Jerry, after all), and prepares to kill and eat him. But Jerry, now seeing that Toots is no longer on his side and decided that pretending to be frightened of Tom is a bad idea, escapes to the exit door. The now-evil Toots chases him with a fork and knife while Tom limps out and slowly follows her.
