Storyline

Tom watches and studies films of some of his earlier encounters with Jerry, much like game films; he runs them backwards and stops them so he can study them more closely, all the while scribbling notes. Jerry pulls up a box of popcorn and watches, too. Tom notices Jerry and chases him into his hole. Tom designs a better mousetrap, but Jerry alters the plans, so it doesn't work any better than it did the first time the footage was used, in Designs on Jerry (1955).

The featured clips are better than the cartoon itself
10 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

The featured clips that Tom watches and studies in this cartoon is by far the best asset here, and are actually better than the cartoon itself. Shutter Bugged Cat, although it was really nice to see those Tom and Jerry gems and it moves swiftly, was just another unnecessary "best-of" tribute. The animation is not that great really, it is in the clips not in the cartoon itself, the backgrounds are flat and lifeless and Tom looks odd. The music is lacking and not dynamic enough, and the cartoon itself just isn't funny. The funniest it actually came to was the ending, though I had the sense I had seen it elsewhere. Tom is given little to do, while Jerry is equally underused. Overall, a disappointment, not the worst Tom and Jerry cartoon, but unnecessary and a long way from the best. 4/10 Bethany Cox
