  • This is my favorite episode so far...Especially Ho Ho Horrors and Northern Light Fish Fight, which feel classic both in their timeless stories and big orchestra

    This episode, in it's second and third parts "Ho Ho Horrors" and "Northern Light Fish Fight" feels closest to the original Tom & Jerry of all the episodes aired, so far. I loved the sequence in Ho Ho Horrors when Tom dreams of himself as a European chef, and the live tango band struts along with his food preparation. And in the grand finale, when Tom gets shocked, the screaming and music are really funny with the crazy Christmas light montage. I wonder why this didn't air during Chrstmas...

    The last part of Northern Light Fish Fight is amazing - it reminds me of Fantasia a bit when Jerry is "conducting" the northern lights with the big symphony music, it's like an old MGM or Disney cartoonmoreless
