Hey, just be glad I didn't subtract an extra star for the title's lousy pun
Well, the one good thing I can say about this cartoon is that it provided some very talented people (i.e., Chuck Jones and his recently-laid-off Warner animation crew) with some badly needed, full time jobs. This aside, they put the two characters in their mouths, chew 'em, then spit 'em out again so they're beyond recognition. I suppose I could give some credit for Jones' team giving this one some semblance of a story (albeit a very elementary one....and the gags were all done twenty times better in this or that Roadrunner cartoon--it reminds me most of that second-rate one where Wile E. chases the bird thru all those pipes & ends up with a giant Roadrunner). And Jones makes Tom grimace just like the Grinch, and later on he has Tom bawling just like Marc Antony (I think I'm gonna plotz). But with all those influences, I don't feel I'm getting much of a Tom & Jerry cartoon here.
