Storyline

Tom and Jerry have stowed away in the luggage of a big game hunter who lands in Nairobi (Tom is sort of the hunter's assistant). They ride along on his Nertz U-Drive elephant. Tom has some problems with a gun. Jerry then unbuckles the passenger box from the elephant; Tom gets blamed. A lion attacks; Jerry gets Tom to hand the hunter a thermos instead of a rifle. Tom stashes Jerry in the elephant's trunk, which frightens him. Bad timing, as there's a charging rhino. Fortunately, they land atop the rhino; Jerry and the elephant carry off the rhino, the hunter, and Tom, tied up and hanging from a log. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

A sorry safari indeed.
12 May 2017 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

An obnoxious fat man with an uncontrollable rage goes on safari in Nairobi, accompanied by his cat Tom, and stowaway mouse Jerry. Chaos ensues, but laughter doesn't.

A jungle-bound Tom and Jerry cartoon offers so much scope for decent gags—quicksand, man-eating plants, snakes, monkeys, crocodiles, lost civilisations—and yet director Gene Deitch limits Sorry Safari to having Tom and his owner fall off the back of an elephant and get chased by a purple rhinocerous. Excruciatingly bad animation and horrible sound effects abound, making this yet another stinker to be avoided by all but the bravest of animation adventurers.
