All 34 of the Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry Shorts are included along with two new documentaries. This really doesn't represent the peak of Tom and Jerry cartoons. This is not the era in which the cartoons were winning Academy Awards. Those cartoons are included in Tom and Jerry: Spotlight Collection, Vol. 1-3. Do be aware that there was considerable controversy over these Spotlight Collections in which cartoons were edited in the first two volumes and two cartoons were not even released in the third. Here is a list of the cartoons to be included:

Penthouse Mouse (1963)
The Cat Above and The Mouse Below (1964)
Is There a Doctor in the Mouse (1964)
Much Ado About Mousing (1964)
Snowbody Loves Me (1964)
The Unshrinkable Jerry Mouse (1964)
Ah, Sweet Mouse-story of Life (1965)
Tom-ic Energy (1965)
Bad Day at Cat Rock (1965)
The Brothers Carry-Mouse Off (1965)
Haunted Mouse (1965)
I'm Just Wild About Jerry (1965)
Of Feline Bondage (1965)
The Year of the Mouse (1965)
The Cat's Me-ouch (1965)
Duel Personality (1966)
Jerry, Jerry, Quite Contrary (1966)
Jerry-Go-Round (1966)
Love Me, Love My Mouse (1966)
Puss 'n' Boats (1966)
Filet Meow (1966)
Matinee Mouse (1966)
The A-Tom-inable Snowman (1966)
Catty Cornered (1966)
Cat and Dupli-cat (1966)
O-Solar Meow (1966)
Guided Mouse-ille (1966)
Rock 'n' Rodent (1967)
Cannery Rodent (1967)
The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R. (1967)
Surf-Bored Cat (1967)

Tom and Jerry: The Chuck Jones Collection

(Released June 23, 2009 by Warner Home Video)
Another Long DVD Review by Joe Torcivia

It must have been one heck of a surprise for the theatrical audiences of late 1963 to see the familiar MGM Roaring Lion signal the beginning of the upcoming cartoon - and have the head of TOM fade into its place and go "MEOW! MEOW! FST! FST!". ...I know it was for me when I first saw it on television!

But, with this revamped opening, famed animation director Chuck Jones began putting his stamp on Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera's cat and mouse team of TOM AND JERRY.

Chuck's unique vision and design sense would guide Bill and Joe's creations for little more than three years and 34 cartoons, and it is those cartoons that make up Warner Home Video's release Tom and Jerry: The Chuck Jones Collection.

We'll break the review into CONS and PROS.

The CONS:

Content Notes: Once again a WHV set has NO CONTENT LISTING anywhere inside the package! One disc is on a "hinged holder" and the other disc rests on the inside back wall of the packaging! But, beyond that, there is no list of titles for the cartoons and, while they follow the order of original theatrical release, this isn't something that even most hardcore animation fans have committed to memory, much less mere civilians. Ditto on listings for the extra features.

This is at least the THIRD Warner Animation set I've purchased this year with no content notes! The others being Max Fleischer's Superman and Saturday Morning Cartoons 1960s Volume 1. Doubtless, there are others indicating an unfortunate trend in Warner's DVD packaging for animation sets.

Talent: It's not Bill Hanna, Joe Barbera, and original composer Scott Bradley.

To be honest, I bought this set for completion of my Tom and Jerry collection mostly. First off, I think Charles M. Jones is a genius. I love his Warner Bros. work. However, even as a kid 40 years ago I knew there was something strange about his Tom and Jerry cartoons. They're pretty. The layouts are nice. I enjoy his take on the looks of the characters (Tom often looks like Jones's Grinch). But there's one big problem - the cartoons are boring! The humor is on the cute side, and when it does try to have more of an edge, it just seems forced. I've tried to watch the set for the last two days and my son has had to come in and wake me up several times! Sorry, Chuck. Anyway, the set itself is fine. Transfers beautiful. Extras are just so-so. Sometimes "documentaries" can be kind of padded, and the one about Chuck and Tom and Jerry really is.

These are the Chuck Jones Tom n Jerry shorts (the product listing tells ya). It's classic (almost) Tom & Jerry. I'm not going to talk about the show in general here, or what episodes are included. Others have reviews on that. I'm going to review the style of these compared to the Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection: Vol. 1-3 (3-Pack).

The Chuck Jones era TnJ came after the Hanna Barbera/Fred Quimby/Tex Avery 40-50s stuff and I've got to say, while this set is entertaining, it does not have the charm and nostalgia that I associate with Tom and Jerry. I'll admit I'm an old soul and a sucker for the big band soundtracks and the era of the Spotlight Collections. Chuck Jones' style is more off the wall - a little weird sometimes like he's trying to make a statement about society. However, this TnJ has several great episodes, which is the reason I bought it. The settings and episode premises (Secret Agent, Sci Fi...) are products of their time (Cold War era), and quite entertaining.

VERDICT:
If you want ALL the Tom & Jerry you grew up with (80s, 90s kids), you've got to buy this. I wouldn't have given it 4 stars if it wasn't entertaining. But I prefer the style and cohesiveness of the Spotlight Collections better. If you want those catchy songs and classic Disney-level production quality, go with the Spotlight Collections.
