Storyline

Tom's master is going fishing, and Tom comes along. Jerry comes along, too, despite Tom's attempt to stop him, and manages to get Tom in all kinds of trouble with his master, leading Tom to hit the master with a frying pan, flooring the car's accelerator, and painting a shoe to look like Jerry so Tom hits it when the master steps out. They finally make it to the fishing boat, where Jerry was hiding in the picnic basket; Tom uses the bilge pump to remove him - and the entire lunch. Jerry ties the fishing lines together and gets Tom in more trouble. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Horrible
14 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is another one of the Gene Dietch Tom and Jerry cartoons I cannot stand, which is all but three. The animation is incredibly sloppy, the facial expressions of the characters were enough to give me nightmares, the backgrounds were incredibly static and the colours are flat. The music is beyond creepy and further hampered by some awful and truly bizarre sound effects, while the violence is sickening. Of all the characters, the only character I sympathised with was Tom. Jerry I felt nothing for, and Tom's owner is one of the worst support characters in the history of Tom and Jerry. Overall, Down and Outing is horrible, perhaps not the worst Tom and Jerry but it is down there. 1/10 Bethany Cox
