User Reviews

 
A rather unmemorable T&J caper.
16 March 2008 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Barring the fairly funny sight of Tom being repetitively pecked by an angry chicken, and the hilarious scene in which the poor cat gets attacked with shears after accidentally chopping the tail feathers off the same bird, Fine Feathered Friend proves to be one of the poorest T&J episodes so far.

Whilst I admit that it is nice to see the cat and mouse outside of the 1940s house setting in which most of their early adventures take place, I feel that a lot more could have been done with the potentially interesting farmyard environment. The quality of the animation is up to scratch; there just isn't enough in the way of genuine laughs.
