Tom is left in charge of a priceless magical ring by a young wizard. When Jerry accidently gets the ring stuck on his head, he runs out into the city as Tom is close behind him in pursuit. Along the way, they reunite with old characters, such as Nibbles the gray mouse with the diaper, and Jerry's cousin the strong mouse in the long yellow and black striped shirt. Tom and Jerry keep trying to get the ring off but it's no use. How will they ever get it off?Written by
This is the first T&J cartoon since Hanna Barbera days to recapture at all the look and feel of the Kenneth Muse animated originals.
Here are rich backgrounds, visual gags coming one after the other and a decent plot to pull it all together. Too often, later T&Js are reduced to plot less itchy-and-scratchy violence with the cat always coming off worst. The Hanna Barbera cartoons were never so predictable.
But for all that, something is lacking. The pace in the action sequences is never as breathtaking. Perhaps stretching T&J to the longer length simply spreads out too thin the ideas.
In the end, while watchable, this is equally missable.
