Exceptional, a wonderful Tom and Jerry cartoon
13 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Neopolitan Mouse and consider it one of my all time favourite Tom and Jerry cartoons. It is exceptionally animated, with great music and it is both cute and funny. The animation is superb, Italy looks so rich and the colours are amazing whether on DVD or television. Neopolitan Mouse is one of the most visually stunning Tom and Jerry cartoons for me. The music is also outstanding, it has real Italian flavour, well it would do as Neopolitan Mouse makes good use of Respighi's Tarantella, and is playful and fun. The gags are great as well, it is not everyday where you see Tom scolded in Italian by a grey mouse and a very cute one at that, and the violence is still there. Tom and Jerry are both stellar and the Wolf is a fairly interesting side character. Overall, beautiful to watch and just an exceptional cartoon in general. 10/10 Bethany Cox
