The Milky Waif
The Milky Waif is a 1946 one-reel animated cartoon and is the 24th Tom and Jerry short movie directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Released in theaters on 8 May 1946, and re-released in theaters on 9 January 1954 by Metro-Goldwyn Mayer.
In this Tom and Jerry short, Jerry has an orphan mouse named Nibbles dropped on his doorstep. He proceeds to find food for the young mouse since, apparently, Nibbles is always hungry. (not just a clever name)
The spanking scene
While trying to escape from Tom, Jerry is captured in a bottle and Nibbles is cornered. The baby mouse hides in the corner by bending over with his bottom sticking up. Tom gives the mouse a good smack with a fly swatter. Jerry is shocked, escapes from his milk bottle and runs over to comfort Nibbles. Jerry pulls the young mouse's diaper down in the back looking at his bare bottom which is very red. Jerry is furious and beats up Tom because of it.
