Storyline

Jerry heads out to his night job: drummer for an all-mouse rock band in the basement of a high-rise. They are loud enough to wake up Tom, despite his attempts to block the noise. Tom's attempts keep running him afoul of a rather mean-tempered dog. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

It isn't outstanding, but I actually liked it
16 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now Rock 'n' Rodent definitely could have been better, but this is actually in my opinion one of the better post-60s Tom and Jerry cartoons. There have certainly been a lot worse, especially Switchin' Kitten, but there have been better as well, I personally would put The Cat Concerto, Mice Follies, The Little Orphan and Neapolitan Mouse above this. Rock n' Rodent does have its problems, the animation is not great, lacking solidity and vibrancy, the pacing is uneven and the ending did have a "that's it?" factor about it. However, the story is good and original enough and I loved the concept. Plus there were some nice visuals, such as the descending down to the mouse nightclub. The soundtrack is upbeat and catchy and there are some funny visual gags where I did feel sorry for Tom. So overall, it wasn't brilliant, but it isn't terrible either. 7/10 Bethany Cox
