Editorial Reviews

Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection: Vol. 3 (DVD)

Tom may catch Jerry on occasion but no one really believes the adorable little mouse will come to harm. After all, it would have also meant the end to the most popular and beloved cat and mouse act in show business. This is the third and final Spotlight Collection Volume from the Hanna-Barbera era of theatrical shorts. It showcases 35 classic cartoons - 15 newly re-mastered in their original CinemaScope widescreen format. On any screen large or small, Tom and Jerry remain the friskiest animated adversaries of all time. Catch them if you can.

Here is the statement from Warner Bros as to why the two shorts are not being included on this release:

Two shorts, "Mouse Cleaning" and "Casanova Cat," will not be included in the third and final "Tom and Jerry Spotlight Collection" of theatrical animated shorts from the Hanna-Barbera era at MGM. Although this collection is intended for mature audiences and collectors (not for children), Warner Home Video made the decision to omit these two shorts because, regardless of their historical context and artistic value, the offensiveness of certain scenes containing inappropriate racial stereotypes would diminish the enjoyment of the Collection's 35 other classic cartoons for a large segment of the audience.

How's that for corporate PC jibberish.

So, Warner Brothers Home Video has now decided to become BIG BROTHER!!!???? I know that the words I'm about to type are now considered passé by the new studio owners but here goes. ARTISTIC INTEGRITY. Leave these cartoons alone and allow us to judge them in their Historical Perspective. We are not idiots! We don't even need Leonard Maltin to tell us it's o.k. to view these cartoons un-cut. Was Leonard un-available to tell us it's o.k. to view these as we remember them!!?? How a studio that did so well answering the requests of the fans of the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies to leave them as they originally were, could so insult those same fans now, is utterly beyond me! Send them a LOUD and CLEAR message. DO NOT BUY THIS VOLUME!

At first I gave this only a ** review, then I thought about it. We are all basing our review on the two cartoons not included in this final (?) set, but the set is not called "The Complete Collection" it is called "The Spotlight Collection".

We should really be reviewing what is included on this set! While the cartoons are not restored like the Looney Tunes & Popeye Cartoons Warner has put out, these still look good. And they are a joy to watch. But I have to take a star away for the one cartoon, HIS MOUSE FRIDAY, that has a shot re-framed to crop off a black faced character. After having to replace censored discs on the first two sets, Warner still goofs and includes a censored cartoon on this set.

But in all fairness, here is my original review of 9/12/07:

Note: I am not saying that black stereotypes are acceptable.

Here is the inside information as to why the censoring:
"The Tom & Jerry collections (and all other Warner cartoons - including the Hanna Barbera collections) are supervised by the "Family Department". The POPEYE and LOONEY TUNES dvds are supervised under another department - the classic films department - and they will be uncensored." So these are issued by the wrong division of Warner Home Video.

To see what all the censorship was about I pulled out my "Art Of Tom & Jerry" Laserdisc that Ted Turner released in the previous century . It has all of the classic Tom & Jerry Cartoons!

First let me say that both cartoons excluded from this set have Mammy Two Shoes, but then she is included in about half of the other 1940's T&J cartoons on these DVD sets. So she is not the issue.

The first two Volumes of Tom and Jerry Spotlight were fantastic -- that is, AFTER Warner sent out the free replacement discs to correct the edited cartoons in the sets that initially hit the shelves.

However, a question looms over this third and final volume of the Hanna and Barbera Tom and Jerry cartoons: The cover art for the back of the box advertises 35 shorts in this collection -- but there are in fact 37 HB shorts that Warner still hasn't given us after the first two volumes.

Is this just a misprint on the box? Or are we really being shorted two cartoons?

If so, which two? Maybe the controversial "Mouse Cleaning" and "His Mouse Friday"?

It's all just speculation until Warner releases further details on the contents of Volume Three. And until these questions are answered, a provisional 3-star rating for this volume, for now.

It's hard to believe Warner could really allow another screw-up, after mistakes on the first two volumes forced them to give away replacement discs to make things right. But if they think that the outraged collectors who inundated them with complaints about edited 'toons in the first two volumes are now simply going to shrug at being left two cartoons short in the final volume and then quietly go about their way ... then I guess Warner deserves what they will undoubtedly get.

Let's hope it's just a misprint on the box -- or else, if they really did leave out two cartoons, that they'll think better of it and add them into the set before this volume hits the shelves.

Again, Tom and Jerry Spotlight Volumes One and Two are wonderful, once you've got the replacement discs. Just don't pooch us on the last volume, Warner.

I rented this set, and am glad I didn't pay good money to own it. Tom and Jerry cartoons keep getting poor treatment. Censorship, bad prints, and an attitude from the owners like who cares? Tom and Jerry cartoons were originally meant for adults -- only when they were shown on TV did people decide they were children's fare. And there's the problem; you can't take adult cartoons made 50 to 60 years and remold them to what some PC-minded corporate type thinks is okay for children today. What's ironic is that present day animation, from South Park to Family Guy -- all of which is readily available to children -- is way, way more offensive than anything our poor cat and mouse friends might get into. Until I am certain I could get uncut and uncensored Tom and Jerry's, I am passing on this set. Let's hope enough people shun it that WB wakes up and gives the fans what they truly want to see.
