Reasonably amusing Tom and Jerry cartoon
10 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I will admit this is not the best Tom and Jerry cartoon I have ever seen, as the story is a little predictable. But I liked it, there was nothing absolutely hilarious, but there were many fitfully amusing sight gags, particularly the one with the frog and the one with the parade of ants. I do think though the animation was beautiful here, and definitely better than the story, and the music was suitably dynamic. Tom and Jerry are still likable, Tom getting the worst of the butt of the joke and Jerry still his sweet and dastardly self. Overall, Cat Napping isn't outstanding, but it is reasonably amusing, and I think re-watchable too. 8/10 Bethany Cox
