Tom and Jerry take you on a cruise for a lifetime...
While not the fastest-paced of all the Tom and Jerry cartoons, Cruise Cat is still hugely enjoyable. And why do I say that? Well the locations are positively exotic, and the animation is colourful and vibrant. I loved the music too, really beautiful, soothing and authentic. The sight gags come by thick and fast and there are a lot of them. Despite being a little slow at the beginning, which isn't a big criticism really come to think of it, the cartoon moves briskly. Tom and Jerry are both very entertaining here, Tom devious yet the butt of the joke and Jerry for being sweet yet cunning. Plus we are treated to some very nice voice work from veteran Paul Frees.
So overall, yet another strong Tom and Jerry cartoon. 10/10 Bethany Cox
