While the story is only reasonable, this Tom and Jerry cartoon is very entertaining
20 May 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have made no secret of loving Tom and Jerry, and I was not disappointed with Pup on a Picnic. I do agree the story is only reasonable here, but it was somewhat pleasant too. Even with the story not being as good it could have been, everything else was fine. I loved the animation especially, it was really colourful and beautiful. Another delight was the music, I love good music when it comes to cartoons and I was not disappointed here. The sight gags all work too, whether it is the moving sandwich or Tom's failed attempts to get Jerry from the picnic basket(but of course that little mouse is too crafty for him), and the ending with the ants and the food was a funny touch. It is great to see Spike, and his son is really cute. And of course, Tom and Jerry are wonderful as well as per usual. Overall, a really pleasant Tom and Jerry cartoon. 8/10 Bethany Cox
