One of those rarities where Tom gets the last laugh...
15 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love Tom and Jerry and I love this cartoon. It is very funny, cute and enjoyable, with a very satisfying ending where the rare thing happens... Tom gets the last laugh! So what are my reasons for loving this cartoon? Well the characters are one- Tom is still the dastardly cat I love him for who gets the worst of the violence, Jerry is really loyal, sweet and cunning and Little Quacker is so cute and adorable. The animation is really lush and beautiful, the music is rousing, the story is well-written, the dialogue Little Quacker has is funny, the pace is fast and furious and the sight gags are incredibly clever and fun.

Overall, Southbound Duckling is very funny and cute, with the characters as appealing as ever and clever gags. Plus it is beautiful to watch. 10/10 Bethany Cox
