Boy, they really stretch credibility here, right from the start....but
it's a cartoon and, as we all know, "anything goes" in animated shorts.
Here, a baby elephant on a circus train falls out of a compartment,
rolls down a hill, tumbles through the front door, over furniture and
lands in Tom's sleeping basket! Yeah, right!
The story centers around the elephant being painted to look a big version of Jerry and you know who is going to get the short end of the stick regarding violence and pain.
There are good sight gags in here, different things, mainly with the little mouse/big mouse theme. Another major element is the incredible sucking power of the elephant's trunk. It's a solid entry in the Tom & Jerry collection with a good mix of comedy and cuteness. One wonders, though, during all the commotion, where were the people who own the house?
A little circus elephant ends up in the home of Tom and Jerry. When some
strange things happen Tom thinks it is Jerry who causes them, but in fact
is the elephant. When Tom gets mad at Jerry the elephant helps the little
mouse and they start working together.
The short starts a little boring but once the elephant dresses up as a mouse to give Tom a hard time it gets hilarious and I had a very good time.
The cartoon does start off a tad too slow, and the story is on the predictable side. But Jerry and Jumbo is a rock-solid Tom and Jerry cartoon, that is both hilarious and cute. The animation is really nice and colourful as these cartoons usually are, and the music is delightful. The sight gags serve their purpose well too, the best being the running gag of Jumbo sucking things with his trunk with such powerful force, and the ending is very unexpected in a good way. The pacing is in general brisk and efficient, and the characters are great, the best actually being the very cute elephant Jumbo. Overall, a rock-solid cartoon with a lot going for it. 8/10 Bethany Cox
