On the beach with Tom and Jerry...
8 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The story may be a tad thin, but Muscle Beach Tom is still a very fun Tom and Jerry cartoon. The sight gags are plentiful, and are delivered at breakneck pace and is guaranteed to wear you out from laughing so much. The animation while not always as fluid as I would have liked, is still very good with some great colours especially. The music has plenty of energy and is quite lively. Tom is great, as is his rival cat and cunning Jerry too, while the female cat is stunning. Despite the slightly thin story, there were very few/next to none lame parts or any parts that felt predictable. Overall, while not their best it is still great fun and definitely worth watching. 9/10 Bethany Cox
