- Tom Cat
- Jerry Mouse
- Spike Bulldog (main antagonist)
- Butch Cat (secondary antagonist)
- Toodles Galore
Tom and Jerry settle their differences and take a vacation at their local beach, meeting Toodles and Toots there. However, Spike and Butch arrive and absent-mindedly get in their way. Jerry angrily bites Butch's tail, starting an argument between him and Spike, during which they throw Tom and Jerry into a trash can and say Locals Only, Soul Beach. Angered, Tom and Jerry hatch a plan to further play Spike and Butch against each other to trick them into leaving them some space on the beach.
Tom and Jerry whisper, respectively, into Butch and Spike's ears and set up a makeshift fighting ring. While Spike appears more muscular, Butch's tactics give him the upper hand. The initial fight ends with them both rolling through the arena net into various sand models. Victorious, Tom and Jerry shake hands.
Butch and Spike then try to outdo each other by hitting each other with the sand models, which ends with Spike trying to pick up a life-size sand boat and Butch causing its anchor to fall on him. Both continue attacking each other, but are caught by an angry squid. They witness Tom and Jerry, having abandoned them and eating chocolate ice-cream bars with their respective girlfriends.
- Butch and Spike are shown to be very muscular in this episode. Spike appears to be very beefcake looking, while Butch appears fit but still muscular. Spike is more muscular than Butch but he has more body fat. Butch isn't as pumped when it comes to the biceps, but he has very trained pecs and has well defined legs too. Spike maybe has bigger biceps and chest muscles but Butch has a more trained stomach, since he slightly has abs.
- Numerous elements could have been recycled from "Beach Bully", an episode of The Tom and Jerry Show (1975).
- The Butch's fly a butterfly and sting like a bee is a reference to legendary boxer Muhammad Ali's theme song ("Catch me if you can").
- The Beach Bully didn't return in this episode as he's replaced by Spike and Butch.
- A interesting thing that Butch (a cat) was flirting with Toots (a mouse), while Spike (a bulldog) was flirting with Toodles (also a cat).
- Tom returns to wear his old 1940s-style red bathing suit, this is the third time since Salt Water Tabby and Muscle Beach Tom.
- Since Butch is so muscular in this episode, many fans confuse him as a different cat that looks like him.
- In the end, Tom and his girlfriend share chocolate-dipped ice cream bars. In real life, chocolate is considered toxic to cats.
- Toodles is blue in this episode for unknown reasons.
- In the shot where the viewer(s) see the remote island that Tom and Jerry are on, the scene is shown in 15 frames per second instead of the usual 24 frame per second, hence resulting the shot in question to have rather jerky movement. Also, the ocean isn't properly looped.
