It's a grand day at the beach for Tom and his girlfriend Toots - that is, until Jerry shows up (and, for a while, gets a rather vicious crab involved as well).

Storyline

Tom's day at the beach doesn't start out well. First he gets his swimsuit caught in the door of the beach house, and doesn't realize it until his intended dive in the ocean sends him snapping back and crashing through the door. He runs out and tries again. This time he is so determined to jump in the water that when he does so, he doesn't notice the tide is out and that he is swimming in the sand, which is filled with broken bottles, tin cans and other debris. Later, he tries to win over a beautiful girl on the beach, but, being the boor he is, he annoys her by drinking her soda pop, eating her hot dog and munching loudly as he lays his head in her lap. Suddenly, a tomato flies through the air and lands on his head. So does a banana peel. Tom looks for the culprit and finds him in the girl's picnic basket. Jerry is inside, eating what he wants and tossing out the rest. And thus begins another epic battle between the cat and mouse. Beach umbrellas, a bottle of soda pop, a rubber beach ... Written by J. Spurlin

A rock solid Tom and Jerry cartoon
8 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I adore Tom and Jerry, and I enjoyed this cartoon. The only quibble I have is that the pacing is a little too fast, but it is still hugely enjoyable. The animation is absolutely, very colourful and bright, and the music is rousing. The sight gags are plentiful and all of them work, while the story while perhaps routine at first glance is effective and has a good structure. Tom and Jerry still have their likability, I am probably biased as I love this duo too much and hate criticising them.

Overall, just a rock solid Tom and Jerry cartoon, with a lot going for it. It mayn't be their best, but boy isn't it entertaining, the ending especially brought a smile to my face. 9/10 Bethany Cox
