Storyline

Jerry, with the help of a mouse friend, is lowered on a fishing line, abuses the sleeping Tom in various ways, and is yanked away before Tom sees him. First, he hits Tom with a fireplace shovel and plants it in Tom's hand; next, he puts a gun in Tom's hand and pulls the trigger; he puts a noose around Tom's neck; positions a ketchup-covered knife (complete with ketchup "wound"); and finally puts Tom into an archery bow. Tom finally gets his revenge, though. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Easily one of the better Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry cartoons
8 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was surprised at how much I liked The Year of the Mouse. Now some Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry cartoons I have liked, but some while watchable were a tad disappointing, though pretty much all of them are better than any of the Gene Dietch cartoons. The story is a bit of a non-event and the cartoon is perhaps a little on the violent side, but The Year of the Mouse wasn't bad at all. In fact it was quite good. The animation is surprisingly better than it usually is, and the music is nice and jazzy. The sight gags on the whole are clever very funny and go at a fast pace, just seeing Tom bobbing up and down on the ceiling was amusing in itself and actually that is probably an understatement in itself. Tom and Jerry are good here, and I liked Jerry's friend. Overall, surprisingly good and one of the better Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry cartoons. 8/10 Bethany Cox
