Colors Highlight This "Cute" Mouseketeer Story
28 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first thing that hit me with this cartoon is the brilliance of the colors, especially the purples and pinks. This is an extremely good-looking cartoon with bold colors and terrific artwork. Check out the floors and the walls for the shadows, light and details as well.

As for the story, we are back in the "Mouseketeer" days with Jerry and his little pal Nibbles writing love letters and reading the Mouseketeers Code, respectively.

Jerry has is subordinate mail the love letter but Nibbles can't go far because "the Cardinal's cat, a big pussycat, is outside with a big sword.....and I am too young to die," he reports. "Besides, I'm chicken."

At least the guy is honest, but Jerry has to remind him about the "Code" and the bravery that is part of it.

The funny stuff begins 20 seconds later with sight gags like Tuffy wearing a knight's head of armor (you have to see it) and various other ploys the young student uses to try to combat his bigger adversary. It's a "cute" cartoon more than funny, but certainly entertaining all the way.

This is presented in CinemaScope (about 2:35:1) widescreen, which was kind of cool to see, as is part of the Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection Volume Two DVD.
