A really funny and cute Tom and Jerry cartoon, featuring the debut of Little Quacker
11 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you forgive the fact that the plot is fairly predictable, then you are in for a treat. Little Quacker is a really cute and funny Tom and Jerry cartoon, made significant by the debut of the adorable little baby duck, Little Quacker, voiced by Red Coffee. Little Quacker may be annoying to some, but I for one find him simply adorable, from his appearance to his voice that does remind me of Clarence Nash's Donald Duck somewhat.

The animation is absolutely exceptional here, if I have to be honest, Little Quacker is one of the most beautiful-looking Tom and Jerry cartoons. The music is jolly, playful and fun, in short it is outstanding. The gags are plentiful, and thanks to the quick pacing they come thick and fast from when Tom mistakes dynamite for a duck caller and gets "blown up" to the part when the father duck attacks Tom with a lawn mower. Little Quacker's dialogue is inspired, I could just about understand what he was saying, from his hand gestures you kind of get the gist of what he's saying anyway. Overall, a wonderful cartoon, one of my personal favourite Tom and Jerry cartoons featuring Little Quacker. 10/10 Bethany Cox
