From Gnik_LJN :

This cartoon. Tom attempts a suicide. And that's not a gag at all. There's no payoff of the suicide. The payoff IS ths suicide. The satire of romance is played out in this cartoon to such an extent that I'm kinda confused whether this short is ultimately supposed to be funny. It's so drenched in its dramatic and depressed tone that it's clear why many misinformed people nowadays can't quite get the joke of it and think of it as Hanna and Barbera's painful farewell for the series.
