One of the better Gene Dietch Tom and Jerry cartoons
14 June 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Again, that isn't saying much, as this is mediocre at best. The animation is far from great, but it is not as flat or as static as some of the other Gene Dietch T&J efforts, the cartoon is decently paced, Tom and Jerry are okay and while not particularly noteworthy there is an attempt at a story. However, I hated the human characters, finding them disturbing and sadistic, the music is creepy complete with some of the most bizarre and out of place sound effects you will find and the cartoon could have been rounded off much better than it was it felt rushed. All in all, not quite as bad as all that but mediocre at best. 5/10 Bethany Cox
