Storyline

A supply satellite arrives at the space station, where Tom is the guardian, (despite his high-technical gadgets) is not fortunate, at trying to catch Jerry, before the cheese is taken by Jerry. While Tom is asleep, Jerry gets into a speedy car, after the cheese he noticed, but it was traced by a radar, that woke Tom up, from a nap, is a ball, with originally had a smiling face, after the ball hit the radar's smiling face head then appears in severe pain, like an upper-cut when somebody hits someone else's chin. Tom was woke up, after water was poured over his head. Later, Tom then succeeds in catching Jerry and shoots Jerry away to the moon, where there is numerous tastes of cheese and Jerry is happier there. Tom then goes wild, shooting numerous black holes, into the space station (almost causing it to collapse) and was caught and forced by astronauts to re-patch the holes he shot, in excitement.

Goofs

The space station is depicted as a giant roulette wheel with the numbers running in numerical sequence; the highest number visible is 41. American roulette wheels have only 38 slots, numbered 1-36 with two slots numbered 0 and 00. Non-American wheels have 37 slots, omitting the 00. The numbers are not consecutive; on a double-zero wheel, the order is (reading clockwise): 0-28-9-26-30-11-7-20-32-17-5-22-34-15-3-24-36-13-1-00-27-10-25-29-12-8-19-31-18-6-21-33-16-4-23-35-14-2; on a single-zero wheel, the order is (also reading clockwise) 0-32-15-19-4-21-2-25-17-34-6-27-13-36-11-30-8-23-10-5-24-16-33-1-20-14-31-9-22-18-29-7-28-12-35-3-26.

Some nice ideas, but this really not Chuck Jones and Tom and Jerry at their best
7 March 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Chuck Jones and Tom and Jerry were part of my childhood and are still among my favourites, so I'm always hoping for something from them to be good. Chuck Jones' Tom and Jerry cartoons have been hit(Snowbody Loves Me) and-miss(Matinée Mouse), they are much better than the abominable Gene Deitch output but even the best of them aren't anywhere near classic status. For me O-Solar Meow is one of his weaker ones. It is not terrible by all means, Tom and Jerry are great fun and likable with the chemistry between them still intact, the concept is good with some nice ideas and cute moments and I do enjoy Tom's Grinch-like expressions. Much of O-Solar Meow though I do find unremarkable. Other than Tom's expressions, I really didn't care for the animation with everything looking scratchy and flatly coloured. The pacing is rather sluggish and the story's execution is routine and doesn't do enough with the concept. They are not helped by the gags which had some cuteness but their humour seemed rather forced and the really dull and unmemorable music. So overall, hardly disastrous but could have been much better. 4/10 Bethany Cox
