5.0 out of 5 stars More MGM cartoons come to DVD with extra features February 28, 2009
Format:DVD
All 34 of the Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry Shorts are included along with two new documentaries. This really doesn't represent the peak of Tom and Jerry cartoons. This is not the era in which the cartoons were winning Academy Awards. Those cartoons are included in Tom and Jerry: Spotlight Collection, Vol. 1-3. Do be aware that there was considerable controversy over these Spotlight Collections in which cartoons were edited in the first two volumes and two cartoons were not even released in the third. Here is a list of the cartoons to be included:

Penthouse Mouse (1963)
The Cat Above and The Mouse Below (1964)
Is There a Doctor in the Mouse (1964)
Much Ado About Mousing (1964)
Snowbody Loves Me (1964)
The Unshrinkable Jerry Mouse (1964)
Ah, Sweet Mouse-story of Life (1965)
Tom-ic Energy (1965)
Bad Day at Cat Rock (1965)
The Brothers Carry-Mouse Off (1965)
Haunted Mouse (1965)
I'm Just Wild About Jerry (1965)
Of Feline Bondage (1965)
The Year of the Mouse (1965)
The Cat's Me-ouch (1965)
Duel Personality (1966)
Jerry, Jerry, Quite Contrary (1966)
Jerry-Go-Round (1966)
Love Me, Love My Mouse (1966)
Puss 'n' Boats (1966)
Filet Meow (1966)
Matinee Mouse (1966)
The A-Tom-inable Snowman (1966)
Catty Cornered (1966)
Cat and Dupli-cat (1966)
O-Solar Meow (1966)
Guided Mouse-ille (1966)
Rock 'n' Rodent (1967)
Cannery Rodent (1967)
The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R. (1967)
Surf-Bored Cat (1967)
Shutter Bugged Cat (1967)
Advance and Be Mechanized (1967)
Purr-Chance to Dream (1967)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Vastly Underrated Treat! July 3, 2009
Format:DVD
Tom and Jerry: The Chuck Jones Collection

(Released June 23, 2009 by Warner Home Video)
Another Long DVD Review by Joe Torcivia

It must have been one heck of a surprise for the theatrical audiences of late 1963 to see the familiar MGM Roaring Lion signal the beginning of the upcoming cartoon - and have the head of TOM fade into its place and go "MEOW! MEOW! FST! FST!". ...I know it was for me when I first saw it on television!

But, with this revamped opening, famed animation director Chuck Jones began putting his stamp on Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera's cat and mouse team of TOM AND JERRY.

Chuck's unique vision and design sense would guide Bill and Joe's creations for little more than three years and 34 cartoons, and it is those cartoons that make up Warner Home Video's release Tom and Jerry: The Chuck Jones Collection.

We'll break the review into CONS and PROS.

The CONS:

Content Notes: Once again a WHV set has NO CONTENT LISTING anywhere inside the package! One disc is on a "hinged holder" and the other disc rests on the inside back wall of the packaging! But, beyond that, there is no list of titles for the cartoons and, while they follow the order of original theatrical release, this isn't something that even most hardcore animation fans have committed to memory, much less mere civilians. Ditto on listings for the extra features.

This is at least the THIRD Warner Animation set I've purchased this year with no content notes! The others being Max Fleischer's Superman and Saturday Morning Cartoons 1960s Volume 1. Doubtless, there are others indicating an unfortunate trend in Warner's DVD packaging for animation sets.

Talent: It's not Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, and original composer Scott Bradley.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings about this set June 25, 2009
Format:DVD
To be honest, I bought this set for completion of my Tom and Jerry collection mostly. First off, I think Charles M. Jones is a genius. I love his Warner Bros. work. However, even as a kid 40 years ago I knew there was something strange about his Tom and Jerry cartoons. They're pretty. The layouts are nice. I enjoy his take on the looks of the characters (Tom often looks like Jones's Grinch). But there's one big problem - the cartoons are boring! The humor is on the cute side, and when it does try to have more of an edge, it just seems forced. I've tried to watch the set for the last two days and my son has had to come in and wake me up several times! Sorry, Chuck. Anyway, the set itself is fine. Transfers beautiful. Extras are just so-so. Sometimes "documentaries" can be kind of padded, and the one about Chuck and Tom and Jerry really is.

Even Chuck Jones admits that he can not fully fill the shoes of the characters creators, but he can put his own spin on them. The trouble is that Chuck quickly became bored with the project & left his crew to complete the contract.

The question here is which screen format is the correct way to view these films? For over 40 years I have only seen these cartoons in the full frame format. All 16mm film prints, TV broadcasts, Videotapes & Laserdiscs have presented these cartoons in 1:33-1 Full Frame aspect ratio. Now we are getting DVDs formatted for the 16x9 widescreen TV sets. So I pulled out my old Laserdiscs to compare the images.

Comparing the 16x9 widescreen image to the old 1;33-1 full frame image.
SHARPNESS: This new transfer is far more sharper than the old Laserdisc & Videotapes.
COLOR: This new transfer has brighter, purer colors than the old Laserdisc & Videotapes.
SIDE FRAMING: Both the left & right sides of the new transfer contain more picture than the older Laserdisc & Videotapes.
TOP FRAMING: This new transfer CROPS OFF a significant portion of the picture. Mostly not a problem, but I caught one shot of Jerry looking down at his belly & his eyes were cut off on the 16x9 presentation, they are there on the 1:33-1 full frame presentation.
BOTTOM FRAMING: This new transfer crops a little off of the bottom, but this is insignificant.

So the best presentation would have been a window-boxed 1:66-1 framing to give us the full animated picture. It is too bad that the old Laserdiscs did not do this as they were not worried about filling the screen of 16x9 widescreen TVs.

Either format cuts off some picture, so i would say that if you have a 16x9 widescreen TV, you will prefer this 16x9 top-cropped transfer.

so many sets
The 3 volumes of the Spotlight collections contain all but 2 of the Hanna/Barbera Tom & Jerry cartoons, omitted because of racial stereotype humor - I wish they were included, but oh well. The two missing cartoons are Mouse Cleaning and Casanova Cat.
This Chuck Jones set contains all 34 of the... Read More
