The Vanishing Duck was a pretty funny latter-day Tom & Jerry Cartoon
28 February 2015 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This was one of the later Tom & Jerry cartoons made by their creators, William Hanna & Joseph Barbera, before the M-G-M cartoon studio temporary closed and Hanna-Barbera formed their own production company. A little duckling, Little Quacker, is the gift of a hubby to his spouse. As they leave on the town, the cat starts chasing after him. Jerry gets in on the fun when he and the duck see some vanishing cream...This was quite a funny cartoon for the late period even though by this time the animation wasn't as creative. So on that note, The Vanishing Duck is worth a look. P.S. The wife's voice was done by the immensely talented June Foray and the hubby's was that of George O'Hanlon who doesn't sound any different from his later George Jetson he did for that team I mentioned. I always thought the duck's voice was the same as the one for Donald at Disney but he's not Clarence Nash but Red Coffey.
