Not as good as The Little School Mouse, but very cute and entertaining
If I had a minor quibble it is that Professor Tom starts off slow, but it is still very cute and entertaining with an interesting story which reads like a reversal of what happened in The Little School Mouse. The animation is very nice and colourful as pretty much always, the music is rousing, the sight gags are clever and inventive, the characters are funny and cute especially the little cat and it ends surprisingly and in a good way.
Overall, Professor Tom is not the best of the Tom and Jerry cartoons, but it is still very entertaining and works excellently on re watches. 9/10 Bethany Cox
