Gotta love those ants.
3 May 2017 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Barbecue Brawl opens as Spike and Tyke prepare for a barbecue, but their al fresco dining is interrupted by Tom, who is busy chasing Jerry around the backyard with no regard for others. What follows is unremarkable stuff for the most part—mildly amusing but nothing more—but I'm willing to cut this one a little slack for two reasons. Firstly, the animation is a bit better than the last couple of episodes, with more appealing backgrounds; and secondly, Barbecue Brawl sees the return of the marching ants that first appeared in Pup On A Picnic—I love those guys!

So, no classic, but still worth watching, especially if you like the ants.
