Jerry as a teacher and Nibbles as a student? What fun!

This is a cartoon that I remember specifically from my childhood, and it was also one of my favourites. The idea is great, and is put to really clever use here. The gags are plentiful and all of them are on the money. Other components that make Little School Mouse a winner are the beautiful artwork consisting of detailed backgrounds and great character design and the lovely music. Tom is a lot of fun here, and Jerry plays it straight in the teacher role, while Nibbles almost steals the show because he is so cute here. And I remembered loving the ending, it was different but in a nice way. Overall, fun and a real winner from Tom and Jerry. 10/10 Bethany Cox
