Storyline

Tom filches a drumstick from a fresh-baked chicken. When Mammy is about to discover him, he hands it off to Jerry; this lets him be a hero to Mammy and still get his chicken. Jerry is miffed, and sees his chance to retaliate: Spike is very possessive of his bone. Jerry keeps stealing the bone and planting it on Tom. Finally, Jerry bores a hole in the bone, inserts a bolt, and gets Tom to swallow a magnet. The bone keeps coming back to Tom, even through a fence. Finally, as Tom runs off followed by Spike, Jerry, who's been hiding in a tin can, is also dragged along. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Wll worth watching for the magnet joke alone!
23 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While there is nothing particularly new in terms of plot, what really does compensate are the animation, music and jokes.

The animation as pretty much always with Tom and Jerry is lovely and colourful and holds up well on repeated viewings.

The music is excellent, beautiful, lyrical, playful and quite essentially very well composed.

Tom and Jerry are their usual likable selves. Tom is quite dastardly, and Jerry is still sweet and funny. While Spike is a welcome addition.

The jokes work really well and come by thick and fast. There are at least one or two that will make you laugh out loud, but the magnet joke is just priceless and possibly one of my favourite Tom and Jerry gags.

Overall, nothing new in terms of plot but it is very funny, likable and well animated. 9/10 Bethany Cox
