Spike, Tyke, Tom, Jerry And An Army Of Ants
2 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The "joke" here is Jerry hiding in a picnic basket and Tom trying to get him out of there. It all starts when bulldog "Spike" takes his young son "Tyke" on a picnic. Just before they leave, Tom comes racing around the corner chasing Jerry, as usual. The mouse spots the basket and jumps in it. Tom goes through the basket, emptying all the food but Spike interrupts before the cat finds the mouse.

This is what goes on for the whole cartoon as Tom follows the dogs and the picnic basket to the woods. You can guess most of the rest. Most of the sight gags are decent: not spectacular, but entertaining enough. A nice twist occurs near the end when an army of ants spots the food and gets in on the fun.

Overall, slightly-better than average.
