How You View This Depends If You've Seen The Material
19 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jerry makes paper dolls out of Tom's cat, so when Tom runs after him and is about to do the same to him with a pair scissors, he spots a pretty cat next door and is stopped dead in his track. Jerry frowns when he sees Tom go over to the girl and suddenly a green little devil pops out and tells Jerry: "Every time he (Tom) sees a dame, he falls in love. Every time he falls in love it means trouble for you. Remember the time......"

And here we go: nothing but flashbacks, meaning clips from past Tom and Jerry cartoons, all of which Tom fell for some good-looking feline.

In other words, this is like a rerun. No original material except for that short beginning. As another reviewer says, this is a disgrace and just represents total laziness on the part of the writers. Apparently they saw this as an easy way out, not having to come up with some new ideas.

For anyone who hasn't seen a lot of Tom and Jerry cartoons this one is great, because there are a lot of very funny gags in it, but for those (of us) who are familiar with many of the old T&J 'toons, this is a waste.
