Warner Brothers is on a whole new level after these short films hits the screen. With William Hanna and Joseph Barbera creating this love story of universal language, these faces are one of those rare comedy classics, that it belittles other commercial or any sort of success in contrast to its excellence. Depicting such an intimate relationship between two rivals, who would have assumed that it would draw laughs with witty sketchy comic sequences like never encountered before. It always is risky to offer such a premise to kids that is practically based upon food cycle and still be entertaining.
It proves the ingenuity of the creators and how they managed to walk on such a fine line and still be adored perpetually by coming generations over almost a century now- Coco, the Oscar winning animated feature, too had similar idea. The creators of the show brought a newer perspective in this animation and kept it smart on expressing the emotions through various activities as the lead characters often did not communicate verbally. Even though the series is based on the rivalry, the soft spot that they have for each other is what made it so special and everlasting.
The political references that these character whips you with is not only smart but thought provoking. Another head spinning nuanced trick of the series is how maturely they exaggerate the physical acts and how much logic actually goes in there, to tease each other or subsequently play their hand with a winning move. Among multiple other supporting characters barging in, every now and then. Spike- the bulldog, soars above all with high stakes and equally simple gags. Tom And Jerry defines the excellence of animated world, nay our pragmatic world, as it explores the deepest emotion and communicates with the viewers fluently that does not barr any age.
Once again, a well teamed up dance, that initiates the good old use or abuse of power, and with an essential message in the hand, Tom's trick still manages to baffle us, he has got the perfect deceit, a scented minty bubble gum dipped in a so called "paste", the days are still sunny in this realm.
