Tom in this episode wears a red hunter's cap. When he is hit with the anvil the first time and turns into a table, the hat is not present. When he returns to normal a couple of seconds later, however, he is wearing the red cap again. See more »
Funny and touching, the outstanding animation really does help too
Being a huge 18-year old Tom and Jerry fan, I am very fond of The Duck Doctor. Although it is very funny with some great visual gags, it is also very touching as Jerry vows to protect the adorable little duck. The animation is of true beauty here, with the beautiful colours and backgrounds, it is by far one of the most beautifully drawn Tom and Jerry cartoons. The music is also lovely, really gives some poignancy to the more slower, less action-packed parts. The story is simple, but it is engaging and touching, it has the same emotional level as when I watch the Disney Silly Symphony Ugly Duckling. As I do with Ugly Duckling, I find the little duck absolutely adorable and huggable, and it saddens me that anyone would want to hurt him. Jerry is still his sweet self, while being the source of kindly affection, while Tom is still dastardly. I will say I found myself rooting for Jerry and the little duck than I did for Tom here. Overall, very funny and very touching. 10/10 Bethany Cox
