First of all, I liked the premise of this episode. Tom and Jerry are still likable in a sense, and there are one or two fun moments thanks to some good pacing. Also the music is very good as pretty much always. However, a lot of things make this episode disappointing. One was the animation, while the backgrounds were pretty, the characters particularly Tom were drawn poorly. Secondly, it isn't as funny or as original as the early cartoons from Tom and Jerry, some of the gags are predictable and poorly timed. Thirdly, personally I thought the title of this short was on the lousy side, seemingly irrelevant.
Overall, okay but I don't recommend it. 6/10 Bethany Cox
