Trivia

The original cartoon included a sequence where Tom blackens Jerry's face with cigar smoke (so that Jerry is now in black-face) and puts him on a plate to tap-dance to a background instrumental of "Old Folks at Home". This has been edited from most television broadcasts, and the cartoon was removed from "Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection: Volume 3" for this reason; however, it can be found uncut on "Tom and Jerry's Cartoon Cavalcade" VHS Tape.

Familiar set-up but with entertaining results
23 December 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tom and Jerry has always been a huge part of my childhood. Casanova Cat is still entertaining stuff indeed, if not really shaking off the feeling that the whole scenario doesn't come across as something as a surprise. Casanova Cat though does have some good gags, not the most original ones I've seen but they do raise a fair amount of laughs and are still in the spirit of Tom and Jerry as expected. The animation is really beautiful to watch, and the music is very catchy helped by lively orchestration and jazzy-like tempos. All four characters are on top form, with the gags and story playing to their strengths. Tom and Jerry are still a likable duo, Butch is a convincing love rival and Toodles is one of those characters where you can see absolutely what Tom and Butch see in each other.

In conclusion, the set-up is familiar but the results are indeed entertaining. 9/10 Bethany Cox
