Product Description

Jewel heists around the city of London befuddle Scotland Yard and the beautiful singer Red is framed for the crook. Only the legendary Sherlock Holmes can find the real thief with the help of his assistant Dr. Watson--and of course, Tom and Jerry. But finding clues and cracking the case will be elementary compared to keeping the peace between these raucous rivals as they scamper, scurry, scoot and speed along the streets, alleys and rooftops in the name of justice. Familiar friends Tuffy, Butch, Droopy and many more cleverly round out the motley crew of characters and possible suspects in this brilliant fusion of classic detection and energetic animation!

Amazon.com

An original movie starring an animated Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, Professor Moriarty, and classic Hanna-Barbera characters Tom and Jerry, Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes is 50 minutes of mystery, intrigue, and cartoon tomfoolery. When a trio of cat burglars launches a plan to steal the valuable Punjab diamond and frame Miss Red as the culprit, Holmes and Watson set off to investigate the case and leave Tom and Jerry in charge of protecting Miss Red. The continually feuding cat and mouse team find themselves doing more than their share of the investigating. They wind up uncovering an even bigger plot while barely managing to keep Miss Red, and each other, in one piece as they encounter all the cartoon obstacles one would expect, like rakes, rolling barrels, and slamming gates. While the animation and some of the details in this production have been modernized, classic Tom and Jerry fans will be pleased to find that the overall look has not changed that significantly from the original cartoons. Michael York, John Rhys, and Malcolm McDowell voice Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Professor Moriarty, respectively, and their significant talent lends a real sense of believability to the classic detective team and their nemesis Professor Moriarty, even if the sleuthing methods of everyone involved are rather oversimplified. There are also some surprise encounters with other favorite Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters, including Droopy, Butch, Spike, and Tuffy. While Tom and Jerry get the bulk of the screen time, in the end it's the collaboration between all four sleuths that leads to solving the case and ensuring that everyone lives to see another day. Sure, the film is full of exaggerated cartoon violence and some detective work that's a little too simple, but it's good cartoon fun that's entertaining for young and old alike.

Format: DVD
Much like Tom & Jerry Tales, this new direct-to-video feature honors the duo's classic animation legacy while still feeling suitably "modern" for today's younger viewers. A top-notch voice cast lends weight to the human characters of Holmes (Michael York), Watson (John Rhys-Davies) and Moriarty (Malcolm McDowell). Thankfully, the cat-and-mouse team remains speechless (see Tom and Jerry - The Movie, if you dare, for evidence of why talking just doesn't suit the characters).

The plot is standard Baker Street stuff, involving stolen jewels and dastardly inventions (a few of which comes across a bit TOO advanced for the period setting). Tex Avery's unforgettable Red and the Wolf figure into the plot as well, along with cameos from Spike, Droopy and a few other minor characters from the old days.

The animation is mostly very good, with precious little of the 3-D shading that only serves to remind long-time fans that they're NOT watching the characters with whom they grew up. A final-act chase on a runaway carriage is particularly impressive, ending as it does atop the still under-construction London Bridge.

Aside from a couple of trailers, the only bonus feature is a brief art lesson, "How to Draw Tom and Jerry." While the process is interesting to watch, it's unlikely that viewers will be ready to put any of Warner Bros' animators out of business anytime soon.

While the brief running time (50 min. for an "all-new original movie") might seem slight, it's about as long as it needs to be. The film is perfectly safe for kids, if you don't mind exaggerated cartoon violence. For adults who love Tom and Jerry, it's also a nice effort and probably won't tarnish your memories of the beloved cartoon stars.

It doesn't star Robert Downey Jr., so it's not making big headlines, but Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes deserves more attention, one reason being that it actually comes across much better than you might expect when you first hear the title.

First of all, the idea of the battling cat and mouse living in the home of a noted human harkens back to classic MGM theatrical cartoons, like "Johann Mouse," in which Jerry danced to the music of Strauss. In this DVD feature, the duo are Baker Street co-residents and provide slapstick shtick in the course of a Victorian London mystery.

Say what you will about revivals of vintage cartoon characters, the issue is really whether the people behind the scenes care about the heritage and emotional value of the characters enough to make them appeal to young audiences but not forget the fans that made them beloved in the first place.

This film succeeds because the talent did indeed care. Veteran writer and acclaimed animation historian Earl Kress brought his expertise to the script, adding nods for fans and blending in Droopy and other great but not as well-known MGM characters such as Spike, Tuffy and Butch. The Tex Avery cartoon "Red Hot Riding Hood" is celebrated not only by including the libidinous Wolf but by making Red a major character in the story.

Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts will also get a chuckle out of the name of a character: "Brett Jeremy," a reference to Jeremy Brett, who is one of the definitive actors to play Holmes along with Basil Rathbone. And speaking of actors, Michael York is superb as the animated Holmes, with Malcolm McDowell as Moriarity and John Rhys-Davies as Watson. Voice actors include Jess Harnell, Jeff Bergman, Grey Delisle and, doing a particularly accurate Tuffy voice, Kath Soucie.

I took my copy of Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes on DVD over to my nephews house and we watched it together. I love it when he really gets into a cartoon and starts laughing uncontrollably. He did that a lot during this movie. He had been watching a lot of Tom and Jerry on TV, so I was right when I thought he would enjoy this DVD.

My natural instinct was to avoid this. But then my colleagues at goldenagecartoons.com recommended it to me. This is Tom and Jerry done right! The animation is dazzling, the story is well-written and intelligent, and the characters are true to their classic MGM roots. The film's writer, Earl Kress, passed away recently. He understood classic animated characters as well as their original creators did, and this movie is a testament to his brilliance. It makes me miss him all the more! You'd think sticking Tom, Jerry, Tuffy, Red Hot Riding Hood, Droopy and more into a Sherlock Holmes mystery couldn't possibly work. It does, quite well! It also LOOKS cool, with animation close to golden age quality, beautiful backgrounds and turn-of-the-century London settings, and clever steampunk gadgets peppered throughout. All this, and T&J never say a word. You will say one word: "Wow".

We start off with the a great aerial of London and some clever thievery by a trio of cats. The cats pull off a diamond heist using some nifty Steampunk gadgetry and are then chased by a bunch of constables on the roof tops. The cats do some great bits of parkour before they jump off a building and glide to a mystery man riding a horse where the drop the diamond to him.

The next morning we are introduced to Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and Jerry who seems to be another of Holmes' assistants. Jerry lives with Sherlock and is a regular on his cases. As Jerry runs and errand for Holmes we are bump into Tom on his way to see Mr. Holmes with an urgent letter. Tom is minding his business when a series of unfortunate events, with Jerry leads him to Sherlock Holmes. This sets up the "battles" between Tom and Jerry as Tom was a bit indifferent with Jerry at the beginning and now there is a grudge.

Tom is the valet of Red Hot, an engaged high society type that is moonlighting as a lounge singer and is being blackmailed because of it. Holmes and crew arrive at the lounge where Red is singing, it's nice to the the City Wolf and the Country Wolf make a cameo. After the act we find that Red is being blackmailed in a similar fashion as one of Holmes' other cases, "The Redheaded League". We also find out that Red's home is next door to an embassy that is housing a rare diamond.

Spike and Tyke are guard dogs, go figure, that are supposed to guard the jewel, well you know how that goes, the cat burglars snag the jewel while Spike is teaching Tyke the ropes of being a guard dog. The cat burglars make a daring escape, much like in the beginning.
