I am a huge Tom and Jerry fan, and I like Chuck Jones. While I prefer his Looney Tunes cartoons rather than his Tom and Jerry cartoons, apart from some disappointments I don't mind them. Are they as good as the Hanna Barbera cartoons? No, those cartoons are classics. But are they better than the Gene Dietch ones? To hell they are. The Cat's Me-Ouch is actually for me one of the better Chuck Jones-directed Tom and Jerry cartoons. The animation is not always brilliant, one or two parts are predictable and the story on the routine side. However, it moves briskly, has a good soundtrack and some interesting sight gags. Tom and Jerry are good value, but it is the dog who steals the show, a dog whose bite is bigger than his size. Overall, entertaining and above decent cartoon. 7/10 Bethany Cox
