I have made no secret of loving Tom and Jerry, and while Trap Happy isn't a favourite it is very worthwhile. Yes even with the predictable story line. What does make the cartoon enjoyable are several things. There are the typical chases that make the Tom and Jerry cartoons so enjoyable, such as the ending when Butch turns on Tom. There is the cartoony yet fun violence that makes these cartoons further enjoyable. Then there is the simple but bright, lively and colourful animation, and fun, bombastic orchestral music to add substance to the cartoon. And of course the characters, Jerry is cocky especially at the beginning but he is likable still, and Tom and Butch are great as they try to catch him but to no avail. Overall, this was very enjoyable and re-watchable. 8/10 Bethany Cox
