Not that bad actually.
15 July 2014 | by richard0595See all my reviews

As mediocre, yet interesting, as the Deitch shorts were, I'd have to say that this is the best of them.

First of all, we have a great symphony orchestra playing music that's too good for "cheap" cartoons. Secondly, we have Tom and Jerry in character; Tom is a bit of a jerk while Jerry is trying to get out of a tight spot. We also have some clever and funny gags, as well as decent-looking human characters, and the violence is nowhere near as gruesome as those damn "fat man" shorts. Combine it with those weird sound effects and jerky movements, and we have a Deitch short that's actually worth watching.

I feel that Deitch and his team finally got it right on lucky thirteen.
