1945 Tom and Jerry Cartoon Depicts a Mouse That Couldn't Make It in Manhattan

In this cute Tom and Jerry cartoon titled Mouse in Manhattan from way back in 1945, Jerry (the mouse) decides to leave to the Big City, writing:

Dear Tom, This country life is getting me down… I’m off for Broadway and the bright lights. Goodbye forever, Jerry

Jerry’s adventure takes him through Grand Central Terminal (complete with shoe shiners), the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Plaza, and an interesting 1945’s version of Times Square. Eventually, the City beats Jerry and he heads back home… by using an Uptown Express Subway and crossing the George Washington bridge. Wait… Tom and Jerry are from New Jersey?!?!
