Spike teaches his pup the facts of life with hilarious consequences
First things first, I don't consider That's My Pup my favourite Tom and Jerry cartoon or one of my favourites(or at least not quite). That said, it is for me one of the more funnier and more enjoyable Tom and Jerry cartoons. The story is simple, Spike teaches his little pup Tyke the facts of life(one of them is chasing cats by the way), and both Tom and Jerry manage to get on the act, Jerry imitating Tyke's bark and Tom the butt of the joke.
What I do love about That's My Pup is that although the story is simple, for the better I think, it is also an effective one, it is well constructed and doesn't meander. Even better was the animation, the animation here is lovely, crisp, colourful and smooth, the backgrounds especially are a wonder. The music is delightful too, full of quirky and jaunty motifs and energetic rhythm patterns. Also great were the sight gags, they aren't the funniest ever or the most unpredictable, but they are still hilarious, especially with Jerry imitating Tyke's bark every now and again causing Tom to climb anything from a tree to a pole. Overall, this Tom and Jerry cartoon is wonderful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
