The Best episode of all, and soundtrack a true classic
17 January 2014 | by silvinhocgSee all my reviews

Tom and Jerry in itself is already a classic MGM - Metro Goldwyn Mayer , which always has the Tom chasing Jerry in every episode . Let's start with the soundtrack, which because of it , and helped a lot and make this the best episode in the history of Tom and Jerry . But this episode from 1966 , we see a single thing , Jerry " chasing" Tom in his somnambulist stage during the morning while Tom sleeps . The writer and director Chuck Jones was very competent with a sensational unwinding at the end of this episode, where (during the epic soundtrack ) Jerry pushes all 4 nails off the board covering his hole and opens it up . He is carrying a ball of yarn . Jerry ties one end to Tom's tail , spreads the yarn around the entire house and outside as well . Then , he ties the other end to an anvil and pushes it down the chimney . Tom is woken up with a start and is pulled around the house , squeezed through the tiniest gaps , and pulled up to the chimney before hitting his head on the anvil at the bottom of the chimney . The camera flips over , and Tom packs up and sobs . He leaves in the dawn , where he is sweating to the brim . Jerry follows , but he is still sleepwalking !

After this, the grand finale to closing with a flourish , the final soundtrack of Dean Elliott , Classic !
