Storyline

We see the box set of the title, including "one mean, stupid cat"; "one sweet, lovable mouse" and other items. We see them used in two sequences, set against blank backdrops. First, the two have a battle of watermelon seed spitting. When they run out of ammo, Jerry goes back to the box, where there's a book, "Judo for Mice." He studies quickly, and takes on Tom. Tom studies boxing, to no avail. He then studies judo himself and then comes out demonstrating karate-style board/brick breaking, with him and Jerry bringing on ever-larger targets. The last is so large it has to be brought in with a crane, and it crashes through the floor. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

not that bad
13 April 2003 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Okay so it's pretty far out there, but it isn't as bad as the safari one or the one where the same guy is barbecuing. Those are really, really wretched. Almost as bad as the series where Tom and Jerry are actually friends. I don't know maybe I just appreciate weird, but I thought there were a few cool moments in this one.
