Tom is clearly a cat of parts!
4 October 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

As is clear to those who follow the exploits of Tom and Jerry, they are both quite artistically gifted. Tom himself has played piano and bass and here sings opera. While I personally prefer his rendition of "Is You Is, Or Is You Ain't, My Baby?" (in Solid Serenade whilst playing the afore-mentioned bass), I freely admit that Tom is in fine voice here (that of Terrance Monck, to be precise) but Jerry still steals the cartoon. There is a sequence featuring a lemon in two sight gags that is absolutely priceless! Even those who aren't especially fond of opera will enjoy this take on the artform. Not "What's Opera, Doc?", but good enough in its own right. Well worth watching. Recommended.
