The end of a memorable era
26 June 2001 | by (Thatcham, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Cat and mouse duo Tom and Jerry get caught up in the problem of the negligent babysitter Jeannie not looking after a baby properly.

This leads to all sorts of mishaps, but that is all I can say without giving too much away. What I WILL say, however, is that this was the last of the 114 Tom & Jerry cartoons that had the involvement of their original creators, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Ever since the first of this series, 'Puss Gets The Boot', was released in 1940, this duo have won seven Oscars for best cartoon, and got nominations on many other occasions. Not a bad legacy for such a fine series, wouldn't you say?
