The cartoons were all released between 1941 and 1956, which I like. (This means, of course, senseless violence, guns and cigarettes.) I'm not a fan of 1960s cartoons; they just don't feel right to me.
The menu system is a little annoying, as you can't just skip to the next chapter; you're taken back to the main menu (although it does set you up to watch the next episode just by pressing Play or OK). Some of the source prints are in better shape than others, but overall this is a nice collection, well presented.
Well, last week when I was shopping the bargain DVD shelves, I found "Tom and Jerry's Greatest Chases, Volume 3." I had to have it, not only for me but for my little 3 1/2-year-old boy. He likes watching the characters, but the humor is a little too advanced for him at this time. When he tires of it I'll put it away and bring it back several years later. I'm sure he'll get just as much of a kick out of these things as I did as a kid. This type of humor just doesn't age and the cartoons are exceptionally well done and well transferred to the DVD format. Both the art and the sound came out quite good. The 14 different cartoons are somewhat variable in appearance because they represent some stuff from the early 40s ranging to some that are on the wide-screen format. No problem. They all come across well. Just relax and enjoy. I love watching these things and a slight smile is almost always on my face when I do so. Not only are they nicely done cartoons, but they bring back fond memories.
