Some good things, generally though not much great
3 January 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While I am a fan of the Tom and Jerry cartoons and always have been, Posse Cat for me was a disappointment. Of course it does have good things. The animation is very luscious, not unusual for the 50s Tom and Jerry cartoons. The music is orchestrated beautifully and is very jazzy and catchy. Stan Freberg does a good voice as the voice of Tom's master. Tom and Jerry still have their distinct personalities and work very well as a partnership. What is unfortunate for Posse Cat is that the gags are rather routine(the shooting guns being the biggest offender) and there is not much that came across as particularly funny to me. The story is thin and not only is it a concept that has been done a lot in Tom and Jerry but you know exactly what is going to happen for much of the time. Freberg's voicing is good here, but Tom's master even for a secondary character has a rather bland personality. The pacing is never really secure, too many times I was wishing for it to pick up. These make an initially scant 6 minutes duller than they ought to have been. Overall, not much great which is disappointing considering it's Tom and Jerry. While not their worst(Switchin' Kitten or Sorry Safari) of the cartoons done in their heyday(40s to late 50s) Posse Cat is a contender for the weakest of that era. 5/10 Bethany Cox
