Designs on Jerry is yet another delight from the Tom and Jerry canon
I may sound like a broken record, but I just love Tom and Jerry. They were part of my childhood, and I still adore them. Designs on Jerry is so clever in visuals and constructions it ranks among my favourite of their cartoons. I also love it for its originality and fun. The animation is excellent, the backgrounds are colourful and the characters well drawn but the real delight comes from anything to do with the drawings on the black board. The music has a lot of energy and the gags and chases are clever and fresh. The pacing is fast, the story is original, the ending is hilarious and both Tom and Jerry are their usual likable selves. Overall, just delightful. 10/10 Bethany Cox
