My first Tom and Jerry cartoon
10 February 2009 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this when I was little. Why, I remember seeing cartoons like this right after "Sesame Street". These cartoons came on KTVU (remember the jingle, "There's only one 2")? I love the fact that the people who made this cartoon used cognitive dissonance. Tom sees a big dog-house and he fears it is a big dog like in his nightmares, but instead, it is a tiny bulldog. Tom tries many ways to stop the dog but they end up misfiring, which makes it funny. This is a lot better than the ones made in the early sixties. The music, animation and sound are perfect for that time. Fun for the family. Bottom line: Highly recommend it.
