Just when you think you have seen the worst...
11 May 2017 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Tom and Jerry are sleeping peacefully when a little yellow bird flies overhead making some really weird bleeping noises that attract the cat's attention. Realising that Tom will try and eat the bird, Jerry decides to lend the feathered fellow a hand.

Another Deitch cartoon, another new low for the Tom and Jerry series: this one is the absolute pits, with shockingly poor animation, terrible gags, and possibly the most horrible sidekick for Jerry ever (and this coming from one who doesn't like Nibbles or Quackers). The violence in this cartoon also seems more sadistic than usual, with Jerry and the badly drawn bird cooking up some nasty incidents for Tom, including giving him a bath in boiling water!

Oh well… only seven more Deitch episodes to go; surely they can't get any worse than this.
