The short three-minute fragment from series is a 1952 American one-reel animated cartoon and is the 65th Tom and Jerry short, produced in Technicolor and released to theatres on March 15, 1952 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. It was produced by Fred Quimby and directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. The cartoon was animated by Ed Barge, Kenneth Muse and Irven Spence. Musical supervision was done by Scott Bradley, using a version of the theme music "Soldier of Fortune", from the movie The Girl of the Golden West (1938).
"The Two Mouseketeers" won the 1951 Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoons. Such was the cartoon's success, that Hanna and Barbera created a total of four adventures in the Mouseketeers series. The second of the tetralogy, 1954's Touché, Pussy Cat! received an Oscar nomination.
The character of Nibbles was voiced by six-year-old Francoise Brun-Cottan.
