Hi Bryan Here…

I have to tell you, it has been a while since I have watched a string of Tom & Jerry cartoons.   Let me assure you, Tom & Jerry still holds up and is the perfect cartoon for any age-range still today.

There is something about the chemistry between Tom & Jerry that I have always loved.  There is a certain charm and wit displayed on screen with those two characters as they chase one another and their plans get foiled.  I always found it interesting how much they say without even talking.  Their supporting characters always talk, but rarely, if at all, do Tom & Jerry speak.  I especially love when Tom & Jerry take a break from their usual cat-and-mouse-chase-routine and team up to tackle their conflicts together.  It always made me cheer for them together.

This particular DVD, “Tom and Jerry Volume 1: Fur Flying Adventures” has fourteen cartoons for your viewing pleasure.  I hope one day the Tom & Jerry vault will get the bluray Hi-Def treatment so I can watching in glorious high definition sound and picture, but this DVD looks pretty amazing for standard quality.

Official Synopsis:

“They’re at it again – hilariously – in a new and nutty 14-cartoon collection! In this corner, a perturbed pussycat. In the other corner, a mischievous mouse. Let the comedic mayhem begin with this menagerie of 14 fur-flying dust-ups. The tussling twosome travel through time (Guided Mouse-ille), to Europe (Neapolitan Mouse) and into space (O-Solar-Meow). And it’s two against one when Tom’s scaredy-cat cousin George comes to town in Timid Tabby. But Jerry comes out on top time and again in Pet Peeve, That’s My Mommy and Robin Hoodwinked. This collection’s classic cartoons starring your family’s longstanding favorite cat and mouse duo again prove that as their rivalry is neverending, so are the joy and the laughs they spark!”

The episodes are:

– Barbecue Brawl

– Happy Go Ducky

– Hic-Up Pup

– Little Quacker

– Rock-N-Rodent

– Neapolitan Mouse

– Pet Peeve

– Pup On A Picnic

– O-Solar Meow

– Robin Hoodwinked

– Guided Mouse-ille

– Timid Tabby

– The VanishingDuck

– That’s My Mommy

There were plenty of laugh out loud moments and a great musical score to compliment each episode.  I particularly love the episodes set in space with the robot cat and mouse, plus any episode that has the little baby duck in it.

Sadly this is a bare-bones release, meaning there are no extras.  Maybe in the future there will be some behind the scenes featurettes with animators and the voice talent.  But this DVD is definitely worth picking up to relive  your childhood favorite cartoons that still make for an amazing viewing experience.  And for those of you who have kids, pick this DVD up and show them the awesomeness that is Tom & Jerry.  They will be hooked for life.

This DVD normally goes for about $15.00, but you can purchase it from Amazon for $10.71 right now below.
