Anchors Aweigh is a Technicolor musical comedy film featuring a scene with Tom and Jerry. In the film, two sailors go on a four-day shore leave in Hollywood, meet a young boy and his aunt, an aspiring young singer, and the sailors try to help her get an audition at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Jerry appears as the ruler of a kingdom where music is banned because he feels he lacks talent, and Joseph "Joe" Brady played by Gene Kelly persuades the mouse into performing a song-and-dance number with him. Hanna and Barbera achieved the effect of Kelly dancing with Jerry by rotoscoping: live-action plates of Kelly dancing alone were shot first, and the action traced frame by frame so that Jerry's movements would match.
