The episode starts with Tom and Jerry getting hired to drive the school bus. On their first day, the children complain that they hate school and they want it canceled. So Tom agrees to take the kids on a fun ride. First he drives the kids off a cliff. Next they run over Meathead (explaining why he never appears in another cartoon). Then they drive into the school, making the kids cheer. Then they run out of gas on the railroad crossing. Tom and Jerry help the kids get off the bus just in time as the train runs the bus over.
