Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Oh My God... People weren't kidding when they said this was the darkest episode of the series.

    For the first time we hear Jerry's inner voice and surprisingly its quite charming and really mellow sounding, but there's much more to this episode than his soothing voice. The first and only episode of the entire series to take itself incredibly seriously is this one. Sure they throw in one or two jokes, but the main focus is on Tom's mid-life crisis of having his heart broken by a white female cat that is a gold digger. It is surprisingly sad and kinda feels like a creepypasta in a lot of ways. In fact the even scarier thing is that some people claim that this is the final episode of the show, meaning that Tom and Jerry commit suicide and presumably stay dead forever. While it is unique in its own way, it really doesn't fit in a Tom and Jerry short. I guess as its own thing it was alright considering the fact that the writers wanted to give their viewers a different experience for once, It's an episode built entirely on emotion and it kind of gives suicidal folks an important message on how killing yourself is not the right decision to make. I guess its admirable for that but its certainly not an episode I plan to re-watch. :'(moreless
  • This is so, so sad. For real. :'(

    I feel like this last episode literally stabbed me in the heart, ripped my heart out and broke it into a million pieces. How can they end it with two main characters sitting in the railroad (after being rejected), waiting to be run-over? This episode was good, but really sad.
