The Truce Hurts is not one of my favourite Tom and Jerry cartoons, but it is a very interesting change of pace. As pretty much usual, the animation is really good, simple yet colourful and solid-looking and the music is a real delight, The Wizard of Oz is one of my favourite movies of all time and to hear two songs from the film in instrumental form was a major plus for me. The story is a little simplistic and predictable, but there are some really nice moments. I loved it that Spike(renamed Butch here) was the one who suggested the truce, and the argument over the steak thus jeopardising the truce was inspired as well. And the characters do still have their likability, Tom, Jerry and Spike, all three of them are great to watch. Overall, not absolutely exceptional, but very good and well worth the watch. 8/10 Bethany Cox
