The only issues I have to address is. They Don't talk! Why don't they talk?!? Also why are they in different houses and places with mothers that you can or can't see. It's a mess. Everything else is wonderful. 93/100 Awesome.
My rating is for the Fred Quimby episodes. I'm not surprised Tom and Jerry has won so many awards, the show certainly deserves them. It has excellent quality, fun and hunour to it which is for people of all ages. I can remember from being a five year old and watching this continuously on weekends whilst my parents slept in. Tom and Jerry is easily the best cartoon by far. I can't quite remember what the name of my favourite episode is, but it's where Tom is playing the piano on stage and all Jerry wants is to cause trouble...
I love it. Let me tell you the story about this show. Tom and Jerry is a series of theatrical animated cartoon films created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, centering on a never-ending rivalry between a cat (Tom) and a mouse (Jerry) whose chases and battles often involved comic violence (despite this they sometimes become allies to defeat a 'greater enemy' such as Spike the dog). Hanna and Barbera ultimately wrote, produced and directed 114 Tom and Jerry shorts at the MGM cartoon studio in Hollywood between 1940 and 1957, when the animation unit was closed. The original series is notable for having won the Academy Award for Animated Short Film seven times, tying it with Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies as the theatrical animated series with the most Oscars. A longtime television staple, Tom and Jerry has a worldwide audience that consists of children, teenagers and adults, and has also been recognized as one of the most famous and longest-lived rivalries in American cinema. In 2000, TIME named the series one of the greatest television shows of all time.
Beginning in 1960, in addition to the original 114 Hanna-Barbera cartoons, MGM had new shorts produced by Rembrandt Films, led by Gene Deitch in Eastern Europe. Production of Tom and Jerry shorts returned to Hollywood under Chuck Jones's Sib-Tower 12 Productions in 1963; this series lasted until 1967, making it a total of 161 shorts. The cat and mouse stars later resurfaced in television cartoons produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions and Filmation Studios during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; a feature film, Tom and Jerry: The Movie, in 1992 (released domestically in 1993); and in 2001, their first made-for TV short, Tom and Jerry: The Mansion Cat for Boomerang. The most recent Tom and Jerry theatrical short The Karate Guard (2005), was written and co-directed by Barbera.
Today, Time Warner (via its Turner Entertainment division) owns the rights to Tom and Jerry (with Warner Bros. handling distribution). Since the merger, Turner has produced the series Tom and Jerry Tales for The CW's Saturday morning "The CW4Kids" lineup, and a string of Tom and Jerry direct-to-video films all in collaboration with Warner Bros. Animation. The animation was very entertaining and it brings me back to the old school stuff. People. This is definately a must watch.
The greatest series of cartoons ever made, until Chuck Jones took over. My 10 out of 10 is for the Fred Quimby episodes and the magic of Tom, Jerry, Spike, Tyke, Nibbles and the other brilliant characters.
If you would expect a show about a cat chasing a mouse, you would think the plot is always the same, which it is, which is why my score is little down. I'm not into shows that have a repetitive plot, but Tom and Jerry has a little more purpose to the episodes. The new stuff that Tom and Jerry are in, are definetly not as good as the old classic stuff. They show multiples of re-runs on Cartoonetwork during weekdays, which is a good thing cause CN has lost it's edge so much, it's starting to hurt the viewers. Tom and jerry is a good show in my opinion, I recommend this classic to anyone, young or old. Final Grade: C
This is a big foundation of the cartoon industry. This show has a cat and a mouse, Tom & Jerry, who always fight around. May be simplistic, but this show doesn't just include whacking each other, it had great things! I liked it's humor, and it's great jokes. Some are innuendos or references to the world events. Art is great, animation is FANTASTIC. This show is somewhat interesting when talking about how they made this show back then. I'll give this a 10. Most simplistic yet perfect cartoon.
This is, of course, the most influential cartoons of all time. Without this, Looney Tunes wouldn't be funny, Ed, Edd n Eddy wouldn't have its over the top cartoon violence, and TV would most likely be a wasteland. It might be over 70 years old, but it's still the most violent shows ever. Tom and Jerry is the best cartoon of all time, period.
By the way, I'm talking about the original Hanna-Barbera shorts here. These master cartoonists were only rookies when they first started Tom and Jerry, but they quickly went into animation history.
Now, the Chuck Jones shorts (the 1960s shorts) were not good. The violence seemed too cute, Tom looked like The Grinch, and Jerry looked like a girl. I prefer the originals (1940-1957).
The show is about a cat(Tom) constantly trying to catch a mouse(Jerry) & always failing. Also, each ep seems to have a different setting(house, farm, etc.). T&J is a fabulous show! i watch it every day at noon on Cartoon network. All the eps are hilarious^^ it's incredible that the show ran for 40 years(1940-1980; way before i was born lol). I'm thankful that CN stills shows this. if i ever have kids one day, i'll definately show Tom & Jerry to them. This shows gets an A+++! bye! werty xcvbn xcvbnmsx c dwde huc duc hndswd hsuqwd hwuqdqwd xhwsx
If any show is to be credited for influencing and breaking ground for so many shows, and actors it should be Tom and Jerry. The show is about a mouse being chased by a cat, but is outwitted by the mouse all the time. The show influenced such things like MAD, and actors like Woopie Goldburg for comedy. The show utilizes slapstick humor, and it is some of the best I have ever seen. Throughout each episode the slapstick gets funnier, and better that is guaranteed to make anyone and everyone laugh. The characters are all lovable and each have their own personality and humor to them. The artwork looks greatand improved over its running on TV, and the animation while repetitive, is still really great. For 40 years this show brought groundbreaking comedy that can make anyone of any age laugh themselves silly. I have seen this show back on CN from 1 PM to 2 PM, so if you are looking for endless slapstick humor that will make anyone laugh this is the show for you then.
Tom and Jerry is a hilarious show that even adults will enjoy. The mouse is just so clever in his plots to get the cat. And when the cat tries to get the mouse, he fails every time because the mouse is also clever in avoiding attacks from the cat. Every time Tom tries to use some kind of object to catch Jerry, Jerry cleverly maneuvers around it and then uses his own object against Tom and it always works. He is just too skillful to be caught. And it's not that Tom is dumb. The things he does to catch Jerry are pretty devious, but it always backfires because that little Jerry is just so sharp-minded, and Jerry takes advantage of that. There are some episodes where Tom's owner comes in the house or the bulldog Spike comes along and Jerry uses objects to get Tom into trouble. And when he does, it is not Tom's fault at all. It is Jerry's fault. He is the one doing all the evil tricks. He is a devil. Then Tom's owner tells Tom to stop or he will go in time out, and the dog tells Tom that if he messes with his son again, he will beat him up into pieces. The owner and the dog don't know that Jerry is the one who messes up the house or messes up his son puppy. Tom takes the blame for it. Tom then tries to get Jerry back, but Jerry uses Tom's weapons and objects against him in another way that either gets him in even more trouble with his owner or Spike, or if they are not in an episode, Tom is always the one that just ends up getting hurt. The fact that Jerry always wins and Tom always loses is the whole point of the show. That's the fun of it, and that's what builds suspense. If Tom ever won, they might as well just not even have created this show. It would be pointless. Although Jerry always winning and Tom always losing is the whole point of the show and what makes it fun, it can bother you, anger you, and get on your nerves because Tom is always so close, but that dang Jerry turns it around and Tom NEVER catches him. So this show is both entertaining and bothersome at the same time. This show is so funny and will make you laugh so hard. Sometimes you can't breathe or will cough. The ways that Tom gets hurt are just hysterical. One time a bomb or bomb fuse will explode on him and he turns all black, one time paint pours all over him, and a whole lot more. I can't even explain this show. It is just so funny, awesome, and classic. It is full of surprises. While most episodes are funny, entertaining, and enjoyable to watch, some of them are just boring and stupid and you will immediately just change the channel in hatred and disappointment. Like you wouldn't expect that to happen with this show. But hey, sometimes the writers run out of ideas. I have one Tom and Jerry DVD at home. Overall, you should watch this show. You will be very satisfied.
This show may be old, but that dosen't mean that it has lost its appeal in any way. It combines the fun and laughter that comes from a cartoon cat and mouse, with music that dictates the movement of the characters and what happens in the episode!! So Cool
So cool! Every episode is very funny. Some episodes have you laughing your head off! I have no idea how they drew so well and managed to keep it so fresh and vibrant through-out every 5 to 10 minute episode. Its hilarious and is a must see for everyone!
Even though this show was made back before WWII started, this show is still a favorite after 68 years. This show is about Tom, a stupid, clumsy cat and Jerry, a kind, loving mouse who used to be best friends. Tom, and Jerry try to outwit each other by doing all sorts of crazy stunts that lead to injury. These stunts are hilarous! The stunts will keep you hooked, and wanting more. The humor in this show is excellent. It is really funny seeing Tom mess up all the time. Back then, they did not have sensory's. What I mean is, is that they did not have any editing back then to cartoons. They had the show in its entirety. If Tom, and Jerry was made today, they probably would have blocked out all of the violence. The music in this show is solid. Even though the music is outdated, the music is still good. Overall, timeless classic, lovable cvharacters, solid music, hilarious humor. I'm really happy this show is still running. Even my parents enjoyed this show during their childhood.
this show must of been created before my grandma was born or grandpa I think and it is one of the best old cartoons of all time the best never ending battle of a mouse name Jerry and a cat name tom and their battles like never end and it makes me laught I watch this all the time when I was a kid and it still on it is not the worst the cartoon it is the best ever and it will still be on and long on my dad even watch it even watch it when he was a kid and it will still be on when we all have kids I think
Tom and Jerry is the one only cartoon that is the grandfather of cartoon violence without the blood and gore. Thus saying, one of the most entertaining kids show that even my parents enjoy. It's quality proudly reeks of that pure and nostalgic mid-1900's quality that no modern cartoon can even come close to beat. With Tom's hilarious and famous screams and yells and the always funny shapeshifting characters, you will laugh at least twice while watching this flawless creation. The animation is great, the music is calibrated with the characters actions and it works perfectly, the characters are unpredictably entertaining, and the humor is spot on! This is one of the only reasons why Cartoon Network is still popular to teens. 10/10, PERFECT.
An instant classic cartoon. The greatest show ever made from the genious Hanna Barbera cartoons. The shows mainly about Tom cat and Jerry mouse who get into alot of violet fighting and chasing. The characters are lovable escpecially Jerry. And i enjoyed the ones produced from Chuck Jones the best. But the show started really getting stupid in the 20's. They made horrible spin offs starring our 2 favorite lovable stars "Tom and Jerry" in horrible 1 hour movies. They made stupid ones like the trip to mars which sucked, and the one about the pirates was probably the worst, the racing sucked too, and the magic ring was crap. They ruined Tom and Jerry, i'm just glad they stopped making movies like that, but still this show is great and even today, it's fun too watch.
This is one of my favorite shows. I'm embarrassed to say this, but I'm not a little kid and I still love this show. In my opinion, Tom and Jerry Tales is the pinnacle of comedy animation. One would think that the story of a cat chasing a mouse and in the process destroying the owner's house, constantly making himself odious in the sight of a mean dog, and somehow always arousing the hatred of the owner would get old. But it doesn't. This show is still an awesome source of comedy entertainment. I would recommend it to a 4 year old child as well as an adult. And I'm sort of ashamed to say it.
the sounds made in this show like when tom gets hurt are really funny and it's an amazing series. what's not to love about tom and jerry? it is the origin of cartoon violence but it's humerous at the same time. it makes people getting hurt funny. i do have one problem with this show however. how come they always end up in different houses? that's my only problem though. the TV series is genius! Tom and Jerry is a very good example of a simple plot turned into something genius. the plot is just a cat who chases a mouse doing anything he can to get him. will he ever get jerry?
although, as much as i love this TV show, there has never been a tom and jerry movie i've ever liked. the first movie they created about them was garbage and they made tom and jerry look bad.
what i have with the movies is that they always switch the plot from tom and jerry fighting to.... something else. great show and 10/10 from me
Hanna-Barbera is a legendary creator of many well liked cartons obviously including Tom and Jerry. How many cartoon fans do not know what Tom and Jerry is all about? Many people do know; this is because the show has been passed down from generation to generation. Without having dialogue, the show was able to last a lot longer than if it had full dialogue. People at first glance might not like cartoons without dialogue, but this is in my opinion the best a cartoon has been without it and one of the best cartoons in general of all time. The show features a house cat always close but not close enough at catching a mouse. Tom the cat finds many ways to capture Jerry the mouse. Jerry finds ways to escape and succeed throughout this one. Predictable, yes but it is fun to watch and a classic.
This show involved a simple minded cat that tried to eat a mouse, but always ended up getting in all sorts of trouble. I love the slapstick in this show, it's sooo funny! It sounded hilarious whenever Tom screamed like "Aaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!!" That's so funny lolz! XD I've gotta say, this show's next to Looney Tunes on the list for it's clever cartoon violence. This show had a run for 40 years, while that cruddy Mighty B! only has 2 seasons and is about to be canceled. One thing I'm confused about is, I wonder if this show's a blatant ripoff of Sylvester & Tweety segments of Looney Tunes. That's always scaring me :o. Overall, this show deserves a 10.
This is the best ever Hanna-Barbara creation! I mean this show is perfection back in the old days! But now, CN has to blow it by making lame movies offending it like Blast off to Mars, The Magic Ring, and Fast and the Furrious. It had to go through many stages.
Stage 1: Academy Award winning classics.(40s to 50s)
Stage 2: The wide screen ones.(late 50s to 60s)
Stage 3: Chuck Jones' creations.(late 60s to 70s)
Stage 4: Late originals.(80s)
Stage 5: CN's disgrace to Tom and Jerry.(2000s)

Stage 4: 2 (very low) -0.3 points.

Stage 4: 6.8/10 (average)
Stage 5: 4.1/10 (shabby)
Stage 6: 0.9/10 (inferior)
I'm only counting Stage 1 for the show grade, but the other stages you have to look in the review for.
Bottom Line: CN done HORRID with Tom and Jerry! Aauugghh! Well, looks like my work is done here, so stay tuned for my next review!
There's always this cartoon show that you used to watch when yo were a little kid but as you grew up this cartoon show always stuck with you, in my case, Tom and Jerry is one of these type of shows. I personally think this show is the pure example of a cartoon classic. The humor is so different from today's shows, that in all honesty I think it doesn't even fits with today's generation of cartoon shows, but as amazing as it sounds, it's loved even by toddlers. I find that to be quite an accomplishment. Something that always caught my attention about this show is, yes, the good-natured violence. This is no Dragon-Ball-Violence,no, it's that kind of violence that makes you laugh for it's silliness and originality. An iron falling on a head, a tail set on fire, an anchor pinched to a nose, you name it, they've done everything, each one of them as hilarious as the other. Also many adult themes on this show, use of tobacco and guns, even sex references, and still, like I said, little kids love this show. This show will always be one of my very favorites of all time, always gives me a big, old-fashioned laugh.
Tom and Jerry is a TV show about a mouse in a house who escapes from a cat whos always trying to capture him. This mouse is so smart that he even makes the cat fall on his own traps.
Tom and Jerry furst aired in the 40s, and since then it has made every body laugh and laugh. The show shows the best of the cartoon era. Seeing all the crazy nesses that Tom and Jerry did was so funny and hilarous. The show is over now, but is the greatest cartoon ever! An amazing show with a mouse making a cat fall in his own traps.
Tom and Jerry is a show based on a house cat trying to catch and either eat or destroy a brown mouse that goes by the name of Jerry. Tom's sir name is Tom Cat. However, wherever Tom and Jerry usually are, Tom's plans to defeat Jerry always get foiled somehow and cause Tom to even take a beating sometimes. Whether they are in a house or out west, or even located near a barn, Jerry always succeeds on whatever the mission is, like guarding a pet baby duck from being eaten or a pet goldfish, or just him trying to survive solo by not being eaten or destroyed by mouse traps or explosives. Also, in some episodes, there is also a big gray dog shown protecting Jerry as dogs and mice are allies in this show, and goes after Tom whenever he is causing a problem towards Jerry! There's also a few episodes showing the dog with his son, who is an adorable little puppy! That's the story based on this show, watching crazy and fun adventures and dangerous stunts with Tom and Jerry! I love this show very much. Its one of those great classic cartoons with clean and colorful animation also provided with top-notch quality and entertainment.
This show was a really good funny show.Including all of those Tom traps that Jerry uses at him all the time.It's really funny and really classic.I love this show and everything about it.Jerry wins all the time in almost every episode of Tom and Jerry.Tom wins sometimes and I dislike that.But it's still funny with all those traps that play on someone sometimes.It's HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHIRALIOUS!I mean really,it's so funny where the characters always get hit by something and they lay flat.All the time,it is so funny and it's one of the best classic shows ever made and I really love it.
