Fairly good, but not stunning
30 September 2001 | by (Thatcham, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was the first of two Tom & Jerry cartoons to feature Jeannie, the baby-sitter who is left to look after Tom's owners' baby but really couldn't care less (the other was 'Tot Watchers' (1958)). Once the couple have gone out for the evening, Jeannie darts onto the telephone and starts a massive conversation, completely oblivious to the baby boy's needs. Tom & Jerry take advantage of the couple's absence, they raid the kitchen, but are soon halted by the baby, who has escaped... I'm hoping that the above hasn't spoiled the enjoyment too much, and firmly believe it is still the mere backbone of the story and I've not given away any clever gags or slapstick. It's not brilliant, but it's still clever and amusing fare from William Hanna & Joseph Barbera.
