snappy, visually entertaining children's fluff, 28 June 2005
Author: Mary-18

These later Tom & Jerry shorts directed by Abe Levitow all have a snappy, bright feel to them. They're excessively sound tracked in a way that today sounds a bit dated, but if you give it a chance, it's fun and brisk, and I always feel giddy when Tom goes *spat!* against something hard and the music plays a loud, jazzy "foo-whou-wow!" There's no real plot here -- Tom wants to surf but is repeatedly thwarted by some silly obstacle. The funniest one here is the starfish stuck to Tom's head that has its own expressions as well as complimenting Tom's. Yeah, it's not as good as the T&Js from the 40's, but it's cute and clever and very colorful, and a fun way to pass 6 minutes of your life.
