Storyline

Tom and Jerry have stowed away in the luggage of a big game hunter who lands in Nairobi (Tom is sort of the hunter's assistant). They ride along on his Nertz U-Drive elephant. Tom has some problems with a gun. Jerry then unbuckles the passenger box from the elephant; Tom gets blamed. A lion attacks; Jerry gets Tom to hand the hunter a thermos instead of a rifle. Tom stashes Jerry in the elephant's trunk, which frightens him. Bad timing, as there's a charging rhino. Fortunately, they land atop the rhino; Jerry and the elephant carry off the rhino, the hunter, and Tom, tied up and hanging from a log. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

scraping the bottom of the barrel with this franchise
13 June 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the early 1960s, some evil trolls at MGM decided to revive the Tom and Jerry series but wanted it done with practically no budget at all. So, the cartoons were farmed out to be done in Czechoslovakia by people that had hardly any notion of who the characters were. As a result, they didn't look all that much like Tom and Jerry and they acted nothing like the originals. Apparently, the staff hadn't really seen the cartoons before but that didn't stop them! This film is about a safari. But, who really cares?! This is a boring, horribly animated pile of manure posing as a Tom and Jerry cartoon. I loved the originals, but cringed at seeing this film.
