The Brothers Carry-Mouse-Off is far from the best Tom and Jerry cartoon, but it isn't the worst either. Also, while it is flawed, I actually didn't think it was that bad.
The story is predictable, the animation isn't always brilliant, some of the backgrounds are nice but there are some revealing continuity errors and the cartoon is too short.
However, it does move briskly, the soundtrack is nice and upbeat and there are some inventive sight gags. And seeing Tom and Jerry once again is a delight, Tom doesn't look himself, but as far as I am aware they didn't distort their unique personalities like they did in the Gene Dietch cartoons.
Overall, not brilliant but actually it isn't bad. 6/10 Bethany Cox
