Tom and Jerry are friends, & team together, from beginning to end.
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I like 1956's Busy Buddies cartoon twice as much than the Tot Watchers cartoon, for Tom and Jerry are not enemies at all, in this cartoon. The baby boy was rescued numerous times by Tom and Jerry, as they remained a team of friends, while Genie, the so-called babysitter was on the telephone and chattering continuously. And the baby was in his crib, winking an eye, as this cartoon concludes.

In 1958's Tot Watchers cartoon, Tom and Jerry are friends, not enemies and rescue the baby a few more times, once again, as in the Busy Buddies cartoon. But the conclusion is different. The baby is walking down the street, as Tot Watchers concludes. Tot Watchers would have been funnier had Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbera had the writer have the words, The End, on the baby's diaper as Tot Watchers concludes.
