Each of these wild and wacky tales will have you shaking your head at their incredible antics! Tom, plays his loveable cranky self, Jerry, as his adorable mouse sidekick, and Spike, a dog with pounce. And he loves to pounce Tom.
Each of these tales will leave you delightfully wanting more, and the children will love their hijinks and animated capers. With almost 99 minutes of fur-flying fun, how can you go wrong?
The transfer quality of each of these episodes depends on the particular cartoon being rendered. Some of them upgraded admirably while a few still retain their grainy look, giving the cartoons a retro feel. As well, you will find a mixed combination of their older cartoons, alongside some of their more recents shorts, giving the viewer a well-rounded blend of the Tom and Jerry legacy that we have come to enjoy and love.
There are no extras on this DVD and that was a bit disappointing. A few behind-the-scenes look into the creation of Tom & Jerry would have been a definite bonus. All in all though, you and your children will love to watch this video; it is definitely one to add to your video libraries!
