Terrific ending
23 July 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Mouse' is an Oscar-nominated Tom and Jerry cartoon and I must admit it is pretty good. Not only is it funny but it uses the way animation should be used and especially the ending is quite inventive, although we have a feeling things will happen the way it does.

We see how Tom steals some milk and as he starts drinking Jerry joins him. Of course the cat does not like this very much and he tries to keep the milk away from the mouse. He doesn't succeed. Then he puts some poison and other stuff in the milk, tests it on a fly which gives a very big laugh, and gives it to Jerry. The result is not really what Tom was hoping for. Eventually it leads to the ending that is one of the better ones from the Tom and Jerry cartoons.
