Just great fun!
25 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Tom and Jerry, and The Invisible Mouse was just great fun. The story is basic, but original and amusing, but there are so many reasons why this cartoon works. The animation is top notch, smooth and crisp, and the music has enough energy to sustain interest. The pacing is thick and fast, the sight gags may be predictable to some but I for one found them really clever and hilarious and the chase scenes are typical Tom and Jerry classic fashion. Tom is quite dastardly but oblivious to what's really happened, while Jerry is really funny, although the best gags are when he's invisible, such as when he drinks the milk and Tom believes he's seeing things. Nicely rounded off as well. Overall, another delightful cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
