Strange Brew
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

No matter what Tom does, he can't seem to keep Jerry away from slurping down his bowl of milk. He locks Jerry in a safe, traps him in a dresser drawer, blocks his mouse hole, on and on....but nothing works as Jerry keeps coming back for more milk.

Finally, Tom decides to make a fatal elixir, putting all kinds of garbage in a bowl of milk. Jerry drinks it and turns into The Incredible Hulk, and starts beating up on Tom. However, the stuff seems to wear off quickly, in which Tom then gets the upper hand, but then becomes effective again. This back-and-forth goes on and on with funny results.

This is another wild-and-crazy episode and a unique "take" on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
