Product Description

The Orginal Cat And Mouse Mischief Makes Go At It In Thisfabulous Collection Of 15 Vintage Shorts, Including The Academyaward-Winning Best Cartoon Short Subjects The Cat Concerto(1946), Johann Mouse (1952), The Little Orphan (1948) Andyankee Doodle Mouse (1943), Plus Other Dvd Bonuses.

Classic cartoon fans will delight in the bevy of classic Tom and Jerry animated shorts, each of which ends in the proclamation "Made in Hollywood, U.S.A.," and most of which are from the '40s. Fifteen episodes (totaling more than an hour) are featured. Included are: "The Cat Concerto," "Johann Mouse," "The Little Orphan," "Yankee Doodle Mouse," "Salt Water Tabby," "Tee for Two," "Solid Serenade," "Zoot Cat," "Johann Mouse," "Dr. Jekyll" and Mr. Mouse," "Mouse in Manhattan," "Kitty Foiled," "The Little Orphan," and "Jerry's Diary." It might surprise more mature viewers, with fond recollections of the adventures of the gray cat and the little mouse, how relentlessly violent (albeit cartoon violence) the 'toons are. This video, a collection of chase-centric films, is notably chock full of head bangin', body bashing, poisoning, and all-around disorder.

The absolute highlight are two shorts low on smashin' and high on entertainment: "The Cat Concerto" and "Mouse in Manhattan," the first with Tom as the focus and the second with Jerry. They both involve forays into entertainment, a great soundtrack, and a fun story. The DVD edition adds "The Worry Song" from Anchors Aweigh, the classic showcase of the amazing (and oft-copied) duet of animation and live action, as Jerry dances with the wonderful Gene Kelly. Contrasted with the PC content of today's 'toons, Tom and Jerry is a literal blast from the past--a must for collectors, and for parents comfortable with explaining that Tom isn't really burned to ashes, and Jerry hasn't been beheaded. --N.F. Mendoza

5.0 out of 5 stars This is currently my favorite animation DVD. April 22, 2000
This is the very first DVD of Tom and Jerry cartoons. It has a total of 14 shorts, plus a clip from the movie ANCHOR'S AWAY featuring Jerry doing a dance with Gene Kelly. The 14 cartoons that they included are all excellent. A few Oscar winners are included. All 14 are from the early period when Tom and Jerry were directed by Hanna and Barbera. Most of these are cartoons that I have never seen before. There is quite a bit of violence in these cartoons, and that's good, because that's how cartoons are supposed to be! Several of the cartoons have blackface gags, so if you are offended by that kind of thing, then I am letting you know in advance. For example, there's a scene where Jerry's face is dipped in shoe polish, and afterwords he has a blackface.
Unfortunatley, one of the cartoons has been edited! This really ticks me off! In the original version of "The Little Orphan," a lit candle lands on Tom's tail. His whole body is burned and turns black. Then the black Tom gets pushed into a cabinet of dishes. But on this DVD, the entire part where Tom is black has been deleted. This really Ticks me off! It's bad enough that they edit the cartoons when they play them on TV, but to edit them on a DVD is beyond ridiculous. Actually, I knew that the DVD was edited even before I bought it, but I bought it anyway because I love these cartoons! But still I don't understand why they edited it. I own plenty of R-rated movies with content that some people might view as being "offensive," but none of those are edited. So I guess some people think that a cartoon is somehow more offensive than an R-rated movie.
Well, despite this one flaw, this is an excellent DVD. The other 13 cartoons are all complete and uncut. The picture and sound quality is absolutely amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is *almost* perfect. April 7, 2000
By A Customer
I am a huge fan of classic (i.e., before 1970) cartoons. In the current absence of Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies DVDs, this Tom and Jerry DVD is my favorite currently existing animation DVD.
First, this DVD contains 13 complete and uncut classic Tom and Jerry cartoons. The selection of cartoons is very good. They have lots of action and are very well written. The quality of the picture is superb. They did a very good job of mastering these 13 cartoons. If you are a Tom and Jerry fan then you will be very pleased with these 13 cartoons.
Also included is a clip from the movie ANCHOR'S AWAY featuring Jerry dancing with Gene Kelly. I consider this to be a very nice bonus feature.
This DVD is *almost* perfect. However, there is one flaw. Specificallly, the cartoon "The Little Orphan" has been edited. In the original cartoon, after a candle lands on Tom's tail, Tom turns black. Then the little mouse throws a champagne bottle at the black Tom, and the black Tom is pushed into a cabinet of dishes. All of this part has been edited out of this cartoon on this DVD.
It's really terrible that they would remove part of the cartoon. I paid for the cartoon, and I deserve to get what I paid for.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother August 1, 2003
By D
Tom and Jerry, a wonderful childhood memory and a wonderfully entertaining comedic duo, have been butchered for DVD release. "The Little Orphan" contains an edit which is so idiotic that I cannot recommend this DVD. I would not even buy this at a bargain price. I don't care if everything else is uncut, one edit is all it takes. It is sad that some of the greatest animated characters have to be butchered just to be politically correct. One scene is cut while modern cartoons, full of innuendos and violence, recieve no such censoring. Do not support censorship and avoid this DVD.

The kids Love Tom and Jerry and it brings back my child hood memory's every time I site back and watch it with them. The cartoons included are made between 1943 and 1954, so it is some real classics. Included are 14 episodes, whereof 4 who won an Academy Award and 1 was nominated, so it's worth to watch it.

When you watch this, don't expect to see all your old-time favorites. Because there are just so many Tom & Jerry cartoons, they couldn't include all of them on this video. (It would've been a bad idea anyway, because after 1.5 hours of Tom & Jerry you've had enough anyway.)

When I watched this, I saw a few of my favorites which are: "The Cat Concerto," "The Little Orphan," "Yankee Doodle Mouse," "Salt Water Tabby," "Solid Serenade," "Dr. Jackel" and "Mouse in Manhattan," "The Little Orphan," and "Jerry's Diary."

All fans of the ultimate cartoon series Tom & Jerry will love this compilation. It offers the best sequences giving the viewer ultimate pleasure of the lovely crazy chases which make it so worthwhile watching it over and over again.
