Trivia

This is the first Tom and Jerry series to include Red, who was yet to appear in previous TV incarnations of Tom and Jerry under the "Seal of Good Practice" restrictions due to her risqué nature in the Tex Avary shorts she was in. This code ended in 1983. See more »

Tom and Jerry Sins !.. Kids ?.. No Difference !
30 August 2008 | by elshikh4See all my reviews

I'm a great admirer of new treatments for old shorts. But aside from being a denigration for the authentic Tom and Jerry, and hundred steps down, Tom and Jerry Kids is BAD in itself as a cartoon show.

If that was meant for very young children (5 years or less) so this is why they aimed it at audience that doesn't comprehend much. The characters are so weak, the comedy is invisible, the vitality is lost, so the silliness conquered and ruled. The idea of Tom and Jerry Kids, or even Young Tom and Jerry, wasn't handled well. It's not only the dethroning of the main leads' legendary halo, but also the easy inane adventures. It's the TV, and I do mean it in a bad way.

Clearly that the makers of it, (Hanna-Barbera Productions), hadn't movies in mind while the making inasmuch as comic books. It's not an animation short, it's more like your inferior comic strips; almost a trite consumer goods.

It's not the sin of Tom and Jerry, it's the sin of that low exploitation which didn't add anything to their legacy but some trivial, unbearable sometimes, buffoonery. We had to wait 16 years to recover with (Tom and Jerry Tales - 2006) as a very late apology however from (Warner Bros. Animation), and it's really worth watching unlike other Tom and Jerry shows.
