It's a snap! But those backgrounds...
3 August 2001 | by (Thatcham, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tom eats a piece of the chicken in the refrigerator, but when George and Joan, his owners, suspect that it was either him or Spike that did it, Tom successfully frames Spike by making it look like he had done it, and Spike is subsequently thrown out of the house.

Unfortunately, Jerry took a picture that reveals the truth behind the framing, and Tom must try and stop George and Joan from seeing any of the pictures...

There are some good gags, but the colours and (especially) the backgrounds are a bit of an eyesore, even for its period in time.

Shame, really, but the cartoon is still enjoyable despite this.
