Product Description

Tom & Jerry Golden The Golden Collection V1

During the '40s, MGM's Tom and Jerry series was animation's gold standard, challenging Disney in the Animated Short Film Oscar category. The lavishly produced shorts featured polished animation, brash slapstick gags, and lush watercolor backgrounds. The series, which began in 1940 with "Puss Gets the Boot," ran for 15 years and won seven Oscars. Many of these cartoons follow the pattern set in "Puss Gets the Boot": housekeeper Mammy Two-Shoes (voiced by Lillian Randolph) warns Tom that if he makes a mess or fails to catch the mice, he's out on his ear ("O-W-T, out!"). Jerry overhears the threat and makes trouble. In cartoons where Mammy doesn't appear, Jerry finds other reasons (or excuses) to cause problems for Tom. But the stories are only fast-paced vehicles for the animated gags, like Tom's exaggerated jitterbug in "Zoot Cat" or his jaw-dropping, bug-eyed "takes" in "Mouse Cleaning." The Golden Collection features cartoons from 1940 to 1948, and includes the Oscar winners "The Yankee Doodle Mouse," "Mouse Trouble," "Quiet Please!" and "The Cat Concerto." The transfers were made from excellent prints and look terrific. Unlike previous re-dubbed video releases, Mammy Two-Shoes' dialogue is presented intact, although the subtitles offer the cleaned-up versions from the previous Spotlight Collection. In "Old Rockin' Chair Tom," she declares, "If you is a mouser, I is Lana Turner, which I ain't"; the subtitles read, "If you're a mouser… I'm Lana Turner, which I'm not." An introductory statement proclaims that the ethnic stereotypes "were wrong then and are wrong today," which misses the point. The stereotypical African-American maid and blackface gags were considered good fun and good taste in the era of Amos and Andy; that they are no longer acceptable reflects the social progress of the intervening decades. (Unrated, suitable for ages 7 and older: cartoon violence, ethnic stereotypes) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars The TRUE Tom and Jerry set you've always wanted! July 13, 2011
At long last; the Tom and Jerry set to end them all! Don't be fooled, this isn't you're ordinary Tom and Jerry set because this 2-disc set features the first 37 shorts in chronological order uncut and uncensored and restored and remastered for the first time (I understand the transfer will be remarkable)! Plus, some of these shorts include their original title cards for the first time anywhere on any format! Plus bonus features including 9 commentaries and a new retrospective documentary. Truly the ultimate Tom and Jerry set...ever!

I've been a fan of Tom & Jerry since I was about 4 years old (I'm 23 now) and still just as big of a fan of the show as I was when I was little. I owned all of the VHS tapes that came out in the early 90's but had to get rid of them since they had a lot of wear. I do own the Spotlight Collection but the shorts were edited and not presented as they were originally released. I'm so glad I held out on the last two sets of the spotlight collection. This is the way the Spotlight Collection should have been released. I really wish I knew how WB remastered these shorts because the picture quality is absolutely beautiful even on the DVD copy.

There's only one DVD case with a beautiful shiny slip cover. Inside, it comes with a small booklet episode guide and two discs. The original opening and ending credits are included in each episode.

Note: The DVD does warn you that these shorts are intended for the adult collector. I added a screenshot that shows the warning. There's also a warning on the back of the DVD. So parents with children, you have been warned.

5.0 out of 5 stars good news! November 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
While i still havent bought this collection (i have to economize for the moment) i think it's great news for classic cartoon fans and another proof that Warner can release full (i understand this to be the first of the series), unedited and chronologicall collections, even of previously released ones like Tom and Jerry-and resuming my mantre: please, Warner, do the same with the Looney Tunes! thank you.

update: I have bought it some months ago. i remember some of the cartoons in the collection from childhood, like "The bodyguard" (if you need me, just whistle!) and "Million Dollar cat" (but I'm happy!). its amazing how these cartoons look so great even after 70 years. my personal treat is to see signs of the time they were made: WW II refrences (like a picture of Tom turned to Hitler in "The lonsome Mouse"), jazzy music, an african american maid (I understand her voice was changed in previous releases; how hypocritical!). I understand vol.2 will be released in 2013 and will contain "Mouse Cleaning" (not on previous US collections) and other edited or censored cartoons.

All of those edits and censorship (which were applied also to Looney Tunes and Popeye) is both stupid (trying to make belive the past didnt exist) and wrong (cartoons, like all art, should be released in the exact same way their creators made them). why can't american corporations, Like Turner and Disney (which still have not released the unedited 'Fantasia' or a DVD of 'Song of the South') leave people to decide for themselves what they want to see? *It should be made unlawful to mishandle cartoons for whatever reason, or prevent them from being broadcast or relaesed on home video!*

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! November 5, 2011
Verified Purchase
I had refused to buy the old DVD collections and am now glad I did! I am NOT a PC type of guy (seems people go out of their way nowadays to be offended) and won't bother with edited/censored stuff. Here they are in all their glory the way they always should have been. Plus the shows themselves look great AND I have the DVD NOT the blue ray so I can imagine that the blu ray looks even better!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful May 29, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful set, great quality, and I really enjoy seeing the full old versions of these classic cartoons uncut! The artwork in these old cartoons is beautiful and there is so much wit and humor in the stories. My grandkids love these cartoons and clamor for them every time they come to visit me, now.

The disclaimer about stereotypes at the beginning is annoying and silly. I think it might be interesting to share my grandkids' take on Tom's owner, now that they've seen the cartoons several times without having any preconceptions. "That lady must be rich!" they exclaim, "Her house is so beautiful!" "Her refrigerator is always filled with every kind of good food!" They (and I) love how she takes no nonsense from "Thomas". She is a wonderful character. A strong, self-determined woman who is obviously making her way in the world and taking good care of herself. So she is afraid of mice. Where would we be without that. I think those who see her as a stereotype should take a closer look. I see her as a character with a lot of positive qualities, and a very endearing one.
