Kind Of An Odd (But Still Good) Late-Entry Tom & Jerry
13 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a Robin Hood story about Jerry and his pal Tuffy getting their famous pal (Robin Hood) out of a jam. The authorities had caught the famous bandit and were going to hang him, but the little mice are determined to save Robin.

Two things you see and hear grab your attention right off the bat: the beautiful, lush Sherwood Forest painted on the widescreen CinemaScope format and Tuffy speaking "the King's English." Expressions such as "blooming" as in "let's crash the blooming party, eh?" sound funny coming from Tuffy. By, the way Tuffy does all the talking; Jerry says nothing in the whole cartoon. Tuffy is a bit rough with all the "blooming" this and that (six times) along with a few other marginal exclamations. His dialog was funny at first, then got annoying.

That fine artwork, by the way, continues with some of the best I've ever seen in a Tom and Jerry cartoon, maybe even the best.

Most of the story is Jerry and Tuffy trying to break Robin Hood out of jail while Tom, the guard, does his best to thwart them. The main gag is Tuffy trying to get the key to the cell out of Tom's stomach.

Overall, this is decent. It certainly was different enough, regarding the normal Tom and Jerry cartoons, to be almost a curiosity piece. It wound up being the final one in the recently- released "Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection Volume 3" DVD.
