Storyline

Jerry rescues a bag of puppies from the river. Most of them run away as soon as Jerry releases them, but one stays behind. Jerry tries to get rid of it, but ultimately takes pity and invites the frisky runt inside, where he has to hide it from Tom, who keeps throwing it out. A thunderstorm starts, and Tom takes pity on the pup, goes out looking for it, and falls into the river himself, where Jerry rescues him. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Plenty of charm and heart to satisfy even the fussiest Tom and Jerry fan
8 February 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a fan of Tom and Jerry, always have, always will be. That in mind, I loved Puppy Tale. It is a bit on the short side, but there are so many things to like about Puppy Tale.

The cartoon is very cute, the little puppy is just adorable and would probably melt even the iciest of hearts. Puppy Tale is also full of charm and heart. The ending is proof of that, Tom's change of heart brought tears of joy to my eyes, and the whole story construction is done with plenty of heart. It is very funny as well, I do find Puppy Tale more charming and touching than funny, but there are some great sight gags.

That's not all. The animation is wonderful, fluid, colourful and just a feast of colour to the eyes. The music is both beautiful and energetic, while Tom and Jerry both delight. All in all, a beautiful cartoon, with enough to satisfy anybody really. 9/10 Bethany Cox
