Storyline

Tom is chasing Jerry through the back yard. Jerry escapes to a bird house. A bit more chasing. Jerry crashes into the wall. Both decide they've had enough, and wave the truce flag; they go to the movies of themselves, which is an excuse for another bargain clip show. The truce doesn't hold, and eventually the characters on screen stop and take notice. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Why bother?
19 January 2002 | by (Northeastern USA) – See all my reviews

After years and years of feuding, Tom and Jerry decide to wave the white flag and call a truce. With that, they head off to the movie theater, which just happens to be showing their classic cartoons. And that's all it takes for them to start up the fight all over again.

Tom and Jerry creators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera got the director's credit for this even though it was released in 1966, and they hadn't actually made a T&J cartoon since 1958. I think that's only because about 75% of this cartoon consists of clips from the Hanna & Barbera period, and you're better off watching those any day. I'm going to be generous and give this a five out of ten, but like I said, that's generous.
