not one of the best
18 September 2002 | by (warwickshire, england) – See all my reviews

One of the few disappointing Tom and Jerry cartoons of the Hanna Barbera era.

This cartoon is notable for the fact that Tom and Jerry both speak - and in Spanish!

Jerry is El Magnifico, the uncatchable mouse. The local cat has given up and plays flamenco guitar while Jerry raids the larder. Call for the world champion mouse catcher - you guessed it - Tom So far an interesting idea, but Jerry emerges from every attempt unscathed. Part of the charm of Tom and Jerry is that you're never quite certain who will get the best of things, but this one is entirely too predictable.

However even the worst of the Hanna Barbera cartoons are at least watchable and better than most of the later efforts.
