clever, dark, and funky, if a little dated
30 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

The Les Goldman/Chuck Jones produced Tom and Jerry cartoons made between 1965 and 1967 have a very distinct style: garish colors, pouty lipped characters, and often using an over-powering, jazzy score by Dean Elliott that makes ones expect "Shazam!" and "Pow!" to flash on the screen. This means that these cartoons don't have the "timeless" qualities of some other Tom and Jerrys, but they certainly are fun to watch. "Advance and Be Mechanized" is one of the more bizarre, and maybe the plot-line isn't so clear or logical, but so what? Tom and Jerry are living on the moon controlling robot versions of themselves. Tom's hungry because the only thing the automated cafeteria will serve him is robot oil. How cool is that? There's clearly some Jetson's influence here, but Tom and Jerry's future world is much darker, and if you accept the overall premise, is really very clever.
