Seal-ing The Deal
29 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is more of a "cute" story than a comedy, although it has both charm and laughs, along with some nice artwork. In essence, a baby seal escapes from the zoo. The animal is tired of blowing horns; his job is boring. He tells this to Jerry Mouse after winding up in the swimming pool where Jerry and Tom live.

After Tom, Jerry and the seal all hear that there is a $10,000 reward for the return of the seal, Tom goes after him. The normal chase scene is a bit different because Tom is chasing a seal, not Jerry, and Tom has to perform circus acts (high wire and such) to catch the seal.

Funny sight gags included Jerry helping to produce a "dancing fish" and Tom doing his high- dive into a glass of water.

The show features an odd ending: one, of course, that could never happen and one that you wonder, "Why would Tom be content doing this?"
