Ties with Matinée Mouse as the worst of the Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry cartoons
9 March 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

That is a real shame as well, because I love Tom and Jerry and Chuck Jones, so having Tom and Jerry under him seemed as though it could work and there was the hope that it would be far better than the Gene Deitch cartoons. The Chuck Jones output for Tom and Jerry is uneven, there are some like Snowbody Loves Me that I do like, while I didn't see the point of entries like Matinée Mouse. Most range from decent to average. The worst of his output are at least better than Deitch's, then again anything's better than the likes of Switchin' Kitten and Sorry Safari, but the best falls well short of being classics. The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R didn't work for me I'm afraid, it isn't abominable but there was a pick between worst of Jones' Tom and Jerry cartoons it is between this and Matinée Mouse, Matinée Mouse if I needed to choose which was worse would edge it out. The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R isn't completely shambolic, the concept is decent(if very different and uncharacteristic and Tom and Jerry), Tom and Jerry are not that badly drawn and I do enjoy Tom's Grinch-like facial expressions. Sadly that is all the things I can see in favour of The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R. The rest of the animation is rough-looking and the colours are flat and unappealing. And there are one too many instances in Jones' Tom and Jerry output where I don't care at all for the music. That is true here, it's all tacky-sounding and thoroughly lifeless. The pacing is a similar problem. You'd think that it would be crisp and energetic, but here everything feels as though everybody involved didn't have their hearts in it, almost like a dirge but slightly faster. The lack of any decent gags don't help things though, there is nothing witty, clever or imaginative, it's all too forced and predictable. Tom and Jerry are great character with a unique chemistry. There has been proof in Jones' output that they have had some likability and work well together, but that's not the case in The Mouse From H.U.N.G.E.R as the chemistry is completely bland and neither character act or seem anything like what we're familiar with. In conclusion, there has been much worse but this was disappointing. 4/10 Bethany Cox
