Did You Know?

One of the very few times composer Scott Bradley used the full MGM Orchestra for the soundtrack, since the subject demanded it. He typically scored the MGM cartoons for a 20-piece ensemble, claiming "You don't need more than 20 players for cartoon music."See more »

One of the best!!!, 26 February 2003
Author: superadde69 from Sweden, Stockholm

This episode contains very good music and good laughs!!!

Tom and Jerry is a lovely show for kids though this kind of series are different from others. I think it should be series like this in our time too.

This episode is one of the best i think because there is so much understandings between Tom & Jerry. They both act well and there is nothing wrong about this episode. Very good Music witch fits in perfectly. You are following both and feel sorry for them in different ways. When the mouse for example begs Tom to play with him, Tom just ignores him. Then you feel sorry for Jerry. When Tom try to save the cat-concert in the end you feel sorry for Tom. This episode is different from the other Tom & Jerry episodes too. And that's what so good about this show. All the episodes are mostly different.

If you compare the shows of Tom & Jerry in the 40's and 50's with the kids show today you can see that the older shows is more smart. Today it's embarrassing to see some series. And that's because they had better directors before.

This episode has an atmosphere witch is both interesting and funny. I think those of you who are a Tom & Jerry fan and haven't seen this episode should see it. It's pretty difficult sometimes for the director to make both an interesting, smart and funny episode. This one they really did great. Just see it and you know what i am talking about. I can't imagine how great and good this episode is after all??? I think this episode should get an Oscar but it didn't. I don't know why but it didn't!!!
