Tom Thumb in Trouble is a 1940 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Chuck Jones.


Tom falls in water while his father is away, and a bird saves him. Tom's father mistakenly believes that the little bird who's just rescued his tiny son from drowning in the dishwater is attacking the boy and drives it away. Tom sets off to find the bird and gets lost in a fierce snowstorm.
