Both Jerry & Tom Provide A Lot Of Comedic Bits In This One
10 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Foiled by a falcon? Well, it's some kind of bird, anyway. Tom is a half-second away from having a Jerry-sandwich, his jaws ready to clamp down on his mouse-burger when suddenly a big bird swoops down and takes the sandwich away. He, too, wants to eat Jerry. Both Tom and the big bird have bibs on and like Jerry with a little salt!

The two then fight over the sandwich, going through and inside tree stumps and limbs, around houses and just the neighborhood in general. Jerry, a confident mouse apparently, isn't fazed. Even when the bird adds mustard to him, Jerry takes the spreader and scratches himself gleefully with it! However cocky he appears, however, he always seems to disappear at the right moment.

This was another solid Tom and Jerry cartoon with Jerry evoking more laughs than normal. Tom is pretty funny when he dons his female disguise and starts flirting with the birdie to distract his attention. The eyelash sight gag was very clever.

Also in here is the standard eyeball-popping out of head scenes. I wonder how many times that was done in cartoons? It's always effective, despite the gag being used thousands of times. Here, the big bird's eyes pop out so far, they land on his beak like old granny glasses.
