Esther Jane Williams (b. August 8, 1921) is a retired United States competitive swimmer and movie star, famous for her musical films that featured elaborate performances with swimming and diving.

Both Tom and Jerry appear with Esther Williams in a dream sequence in another MGM musical, Dangerous When Wet. In the film, Tom and Jerry are chasing each other underwater, when they run into Esther Williams, with whom they perform an extended synchronized swimming routine. Tom and Jerry have to save Williams from a lecherous octopus, who tries to lure and woo her into (many of) his arms.
