Forget the gym... mix up some milk, bleach and moth-balls for the perfect physique (disclaimer: that was a joke!)., 21 June 2008
Author: BA_Harrison from Hampshire, England

Annoyed that Jerry keeps on 'half-inching' his milk, Tom the cat mixes up a noxious and potentially deadly concoction, puts it in his bowl and waits for the rodent to strike. However, rather than causing Jerry to pop his clogs, the foul mixture of milk and household chemicals turns the meek mouse into a muscle-bound hulk...

This one might not be the greatest of Tom and Jerry's escapades (despite being Oscar nominated), but it packs enough laughs to make it worth a go. The animation is above average, with the scenes in which Tom mixes his potion being particularly well rendered (the coloured lighting and shadows cast by the cat are very effective).

Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Mouse is silly fun and gets a respectable rating of 7/10 from me.
