Tom and Jerry Wiki

Spike Gets Skooled is the first episode of The Tom and Jerry Show (2014) and the first episode of the first season.


Tom gets Spike sent to obedience school, and Jerry is left without a protector. When Spike returns, Tom tries hard to get Spike to revert to his old ways. Jerry fights back to make sure that Spike keeps his cool.


Tom is chasing Jerry and they mess up the house. When Tom tries to get Jerry out of an unbreakable vase, Spike comes in to break up the fight and tells them to stop. When Spike slips and breaks things, Rick and Ginger arrive and find the place a mess. Ginger thinks that Spike made the mess but Rick thinks that Tom provoked him a little. When Tom makes different ways of Spike threatening him, Ginger tells Rick to do something. Rick tells Ginger that he will send Spike to Obedience School. Spike is shocked by this and is dragged out by Rick. Tom then gets Jerry to do things like filing his nails, trimming his whiskers and massaging his back. When Rick returns with Spike, he shows Ginger how well behaved Spike has become by using a whistle and giving commands. Ginger tells Rick that she is preparing a luncheon and warns him that if anything goes wrong even one thing then Spike will be outside. Rick tells Spike that she means business. Tom teases Spike and the latter threatens to hurt Tom for what the Obedience School did to him. He attacks but Jerry who doesn't want to be Tom's servant uses the whistle. Tom tries using different ways to get Spike in trouble like using a bone, Spike's toy, Mr. Ruggles and then the super duper bouncy ball. Jerry stops the ball from breaking a cup from the shelf and Ginger finds the place clean and untouched. She thinks that Spike has changed until Spike becomes alarmed when he sees Tom with the ball grinning evilly. Spike begs for mercy but Tom being unmerciful, rolls the ball towards Ginger and Spike grabs it but Ginger slips on Spike's saliva and destroys the luncheon she had prepared. She becomes angry and tells Rick to put Spike out. Rick does that and Tom waves at Spike.
