JERRY SMASH!
22 March 2003 | by (Bristol, CT) – See all my reviews

After Tom gets tired of Jerry drinking from his milk-bowl, Tom poisons his own milk to do away with the mouse once and for all. But the chemicals he uses do not kill Jerry, but transforms him into The Incredible Hulk-Mouse, only not green. To see this side of Jerry is worth watching this short. The terror and fear from Tom of the bigger, stronger Jerry, is depicted well, and Jerry's rampage is astounding. Although Hulk-Jerry is still smaller in size than Tom, he is extremely formidable, and still manages to maul him. The standout scene is where Tom hides in a safe, Hulk-Jerry bores a hole in the safe's door with his fist, and pulls Tom through the tiny hole!

Great stuff. Great twist ending, too.
