Awfully dull, though not without some charm
4 June 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is not one of the better Tom and Jerry cartoons for several reasons. First, it was created after the quality of the cartoons (particularly the backgrounds) was dropped in the 1950s. The high-quality work of the 40s and early 50s is just not evident here and the cartoon just looks cheaper. Second, while the film starts off promising (with the two bashing each other's brains in), they soon meet up with a nice mouse that teaches them to be friends. Third, then most of the rest of the cartoon is sort of like a travelogue! The bottom line is, most of us watch the team because we want them to beat each other up and act...like animals! This kinder, gentler approach just lost me.
