Storyline

Jerry is far from Tom's servant here. Tom, shipwrecked, washes up on a tropical island. His first attempts at food - a coconut and a turtle - are much too hard. But he spots Jerry just before Jerry sees him, and soon has him in the frying pan. Jerry escapes to a cannibal village; when he sees Tom's frightened reaction, he has his plan. Using soot from a pot, he blackens himself, then threatens Tom and starts cooking him. But Jerry's plan - and tail, and un-blackened bottom - is exposed when his grass skirt comes off during his war dance. Jerry helicopters away using the bone in his hair, and leading Tom right into the real cannibals. But Jerry's triumph is short-lived, as a pygmy cannibal comes after him.

Didn't think much of it
24 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

Banned cartoon in which Tom is stranded on what appears to be a desert island. But it's not long before he finds Jerry, and he's bound to be Tom's diner.

But things complicate as there's a tribe on the island, and Jerry dresses up like one of them to scare Tom and have him for HIS dinner. Best moment: when Tom has to slice up the vegetables for the 'cat-soup' and throws away the onion. Love that expression on his face.

Off course the real tribe come in the picture as well as both Tom and Jerry have to run for their lives, before the cartoon comes to a sudden stop and we don't really know how things end.

Apart from that one scene with Tom in the huge soup bowl there isn't much to enjoy here. Not that offensive either, if that's what you're looking for. 3/10.
