Not among the best for Tom and Jerry, but at least it entertains
5 February 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Vanishing Duck is not a masterpiece, nor was I was expecting it to be. The animation quality is not as good as before, Tom and Jerry have been drawn much better, the backgrounds are not as smooth and there were some I feel overly-bright colours. The story has a very similar scenario to The Invisible Mouse, though not as inspired or funny. However there is much to like as is mostly the case with Tom and Jerry(I say mostly because after 1958 the output wasn't a patch on their earlier cartoons). The music is very catchy and zesty with some beautiful and dynamic orchestration. The gags are fun and clever, and delivered in a brisk fashion. Tom and Jerry are likable, Tom being the butt of the violence but becoming more vengeful later and Jerry as cute and cunning as ever. Little Quacker is very endearing. All in all, not masterpiece Tom and Jerry but entertaining Tom and Jerry all the same, which is still fine for me. 8/10 Bethany Cox
