Tom's playing tennis, and Jerry is carrying his equipment for him. However, Tom's opponent, a cigar-smoking cat, is much better than Tom and is soon (literally) beating him soundly. Jerry comes to the rescue with a special "killer" tennis ball. But before long, everyone seems to be playing against everyone else. Written by

I loved Tennis Chumps, there is so much to recommend it. The story may be a tad unexceptional, but everything else is top notch. The animation is very clean and crisp, and the music is delightful once again. What makes Tennis Chumps work though are the clever sight gags and the chemistry between Tom(shown as an inferior player), Butch(who smokes a cigar here) and sweet and funny little Jerry, as they do all these fantastic shots while bending the rules too. The pacing is thick and fast, and the whole cartoon is non-stop hilarity from start to finish. Overall, just a delight, very unusual but such a lot of fun as well. 9/10 Bethany Cox
