I'm not wild about this T&J caper.
29 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tom is chasing Jerry, who leads the cat into a toy store where chaos ensues.

A toy shop: in the old days of T&J, this scenario would have offered lots of potential for hilarity, but this being a '60s Chuck Jones effort, the result is disappointing to say the least. Charmless animation, unimaginative gags, and an overall feeling of a wasted opportunity.

The repetitive joke where Tom is run over by a train is a recycled Wile.E.Coyote moment, and what kind of toy shop keeps a mallet display? Jones also seems to have no ability (here at least) to add a feeling of momentum to either his characters or the falling objects that inevitably land on Tom's head.
