Back To Basis !

I love this revival of the legendary Tom & Jerry. After years of their older TV show which was so unbearable sequel (Tom & Jerry-alleged-sons !) here the eternal chase continues, but wonderfully. The secret of the successful formula is the return to the original form of the 2 leads, their house, and even their reactions. The makers of these tales tried cleverly to capture the motion, the beat, and the sense of MGM's old works. This distinct aestheticism which was part of the authentic movies' series is here again somehow as so effective and nostalgic. Jerry's classic burrow, the case of no visible human faces, the musical opening credits, that's what I call beautiful devotion. It assures how the original is purely pristine and mighty, and how it's a tough mission to remake it too. Although it could be the perfect way to bring back the icons, but that old feeling is absent, and that unique spirit surely is not the same. For minor example (Scott Bradley) isn't here to embody the visual extravaganza because it's not the 1940s and the image is not that explosive too. I became so annoyed by the appearances of other characters such as (Droopy), not because he doesn't belong to the world of Tom & Jerry that I love, but simply because he is ridiculous. The episodes lack the crazy vivacity that made the glory; therefore the adventures aren't that fervent or cinematic as the ambition was making TV episodes. So watch out for the word "teleplay" at the opening credits, it's a warning more than usual information. It could be a little bit lower in comparison, but real good entertainment in itself, and still is a better remake or the best yet, with all the fresh colors, the loyalty to the real Tom & Jerry, and that so lucid love for their old movies as The great cartoon.

Entertaining show

8/10

I like Tom and Jerry Tales very much. Of course it isn't as good as the original show, which still is one of my all time favourites. It does keep true to the spirit of the original show, and enormously entertaining. The animation is very colourful and fluid, and the theme tune is great.

The antics of Tom and Jerry are hilarious, and the two completely wonderful characters still have their likability. The situations they get in are enough to make you howl with laughter, some of it is wickedly funny. If I had any complaints, it would be the inclusion of other characters, like Droopy. Like the other reviewer said, they just seemed unnecessary. Other than that, while not as good as the wonderful classic show, it is still hugely enjoyable, well worth watching and one of the better Tom and Jerry shows out there. 8/10 Bethany Cox

These series belong in a concentration camp!

1/10

Why, you might ask me? Well, because the writers took two classic characters, and created an excuse for animation. Tom & Jerry were placed in absolutely stupid settings and the episodes were filled with the most generic and mediocre humor you can find anywhere.

But not only humor is generic and mediocre, some of the episodes are directly ripped of the classic ones. Don't want to spoil anything, but, let's just say, one involves an octopus and takes place under water. Yes, the Tom & Jerry scene from Dangerous When Wet.

You thought Chuck Jones' Tom & Jerry ruined the characters??? Just wait till you see this abomination!
