Product Description

Tom & Jerry's Greatest Chases: Volume Two

Everyones favorite cat and mouse are back with 14 shorts from the popular cartoon series. Volume 2 finds Tom and Jerry engaging in some of their greatest chases ever!

]]>

Amazon.com

Cats chase mice--it's a simple law of nature--but few have cultivated the art of the chase as skillfully as Hanna Barbera did in their animated Tom and Jerry cartoons in the mid-1940s and early-1950s. Every episode is essentially an extended comedic chase bursting with subterfuge, destruction, and an abundance of action. Tom, the cat, is 100-percent fixated on catching Jerry, the mouse, so when Tom can't seem to prevail in a simple chase, he resorts to a mail-order book for some new techniques that are sure to yield results in the Academy Award®-winning "Mouse Trouble." Unfortunately for Tom, Jerry is uncannily able to outthink even the most elaborate plan. Light is shed on the strangely protective relationship between the bulldog, Spike, and Jerry in "The Bodyguard," and it seems that no matter how hard Tom tries, he will never be able to placate, outsmart, or avoid Spike in the Oscar®-winning "Quiet Please!" or episodes "Cat Fishin'," and "Slicked-Up Pup." Tom suffers all sorts of indignities in this compilation, not the least of which are being dressed up as a baby by a bossy young girl in "Baby Puss" (not "Sufferin' Cats" as listed on the DVD cover) and being challenged by his fellow cats in "Sufferin' Cats," but his cousin Muscles Mouse eventually teaches him to stick up for himself in the Oscar®-nominated "Jerry's Cousin." Even a million dollars can't keep Tom from chasing Jerry in "Million Dollar Cat," but the crafty mouse repeatedly proves impossible to catch, especially in "Invisible Mouse." The birds and the fish gang up with Jerry in "Flirty Birdy" and "Jerry and the Goldfish," a game of billiards proves anything but simple when Jerry's around in "Cue Ball Cat," and "Heavenly Puss" gives Tom a frightening opportunity to reflect on the morality of his actions. Silly cartoon violence abounds in just about every moment of every short, and while it might no longer be deemed suitable for young children, it will inspire smiles and hearty laughter in adults and older children. --Tami Horiuchi

Format: DVD
These are classic Tom and Jerry cartoons from the 40s/50s. No Chuck Jones, thank goodness. Personally, I do not care for the Chuck Jones directed ones. Anyway, there are 14 o 15 shorts -- not remastered. The sound goes low in 3 of them and then comes back to normal. I really didn't pay attention to this since there's not any dialouge. The picture looks as if they transferred it right from the 16mm. But it's not completely horrible. No Mammy Two Shoes. Cartoons included on this disc are Jerry's Cousin, Jerry and the Goldfish, Slicked Up Pup, Quiet Please -- also, the one where Tom is dressed up as a baby and 3 cats make fun of him, the one where the bird falls in love with Tom, "Just Whistle" with Spike helping Jerry. I have been wanting to buy the Spotlight collections but have been hesitant because of the reviews saying they are edited. I love Tom and Jerry, but I want the uncut versions. Even without Mammy Two Shoes, the Greatest Chases DVDs are worth getting.

This is a really cute video. You can laugh at them and enjoy it. I remember watching them on Saturday mornings as a kid.

I just wanted more of the old Tom and Jerry cartoons, the ones from the earlier days, directed by Hanna Barbara. This DVD has a large selection for the $5 price, my kids love them. I had bought the volume 1 before this one and my kids watch it a ton, so this one fits the bill to add to the collection.

Update: I have had this DVD for a few weeks now and have watched it a few times with my kids. I don't really like this one as much as volume 1! This one is just depressing on some episodes. For example, on the first episode, Tom and some other cat friend catch Jerry and the friend holds Jerry down on a stump while Tom aims an axe, ready to chop Jerry in half. Then a little devil appears on Tom's shoulder and tells Tom instead to chop up his friend, for some reason. It would be fine if they just get on with it, but a lot of time is spent on this scene, and we're forced to sit and watch and think about what is happening! Depressing! There's lots of bulldogs with big, white, sharp teeth, and even one episode where Tom goes fishing and the fish have big, white, sharp teeth. It gets to be too much. I know, 'well, that's what Tom and Jerry is all about! they kill each other without killing each other!' But this volume is depressing. Volume 1 is WAY better for overall good Tom and Jerry fun.

My grandson and I watch Tom and Jerry every afternoon after school. The only time we turn it off is when we do homework. Good clean fun.

These are the original cartoons and my kids love them! It's fun to go back in time and watch the Tom and Jerry that made us all laugh.

Love,love Tom & Jerry! It is the best cartoon ever made! I'm trying to order as many T&J dvds as I can. I'd like to pass them on from generation to generation. I understand you can easily watch them for free on the Internet, but there's nothing like actually owning them. My kids (varying in age) love watching them and they never get old.

I bought this as a gift... the kids totally love it... the only reason i took a star away is that when they received the DVD is was rattaling in the case, the part that hold the DVD in the case broke off... so the DVDs can't be held in place in the box... but the DVD were not scratched and work perfectly. Thanks
