The Tom and Jerry Show
Some BIG news today! Looks like Cartoon Network is set to premiere a new Tom and Jerry Show. Comprised of two 11-minute shorts, each episode will feature Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse plotting against each other—with Tom’s determination matched only by Jerry’s own cleverness in evading capture. Not sure when the official premiere is, I'll keep you posted when I do or you can follow me on Twitterto get the latest news.

Also, the “Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood and His Merry Mouse” DVD has just been release to a fanfare of MEH...at least from the Toon Zone's perspective

The Good:
Another Tom and Jerry DVD release with a theme, this time around it's all about Halloween/Horror/Holidays. This is a great DVD to get one in the mood for the fall/winter. Picture quality is crisp and clean, especially on the older cartoons.

If you are a huge fan of the Tom and Jerry Tales cartoons, this DVD is packed for of them.

The Bad:
As with the previous releases, there is a disproportionate amout of Tom and Jerry Tales Cartoons: 1 Chuck Jones era, 5 early Hanna-Barbera, 16 Tom and Jerry tales. Though that's not inherintely bad, but the was only one Hanna-Barbera that was Halloween themed. Where was "Fraidy Cat", "Dr.Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Mouse", or even "Heavenly Puss" for a more Halloween theme? Again, why is there no love for any Gene Deitch cartoons or the 1975 Hanna-Barbera? Heck, there are even some Tom and Jerry Kids episodes that would fit in nicely with this release.

Other than the lack of respect to any other era and the odd choices from some of the older Tom and Jerrys, I can't find anything really bad about this release.

The Ugly:
Mostly Tom and Jerry Tales oriented, though I can't say that's an ugly issue. My main beef with this release, as mentioned before, is the lack of any other Tom and Jerry era cartoons.




Okay, so it's been a couple of months since last I updated Tom and Jerry online. I have to admit it's partly due to laziness, but mostly due to a job switch these last couple of month.

So what is new? A lot. If you've been keeping up with the Facebook page you'd know about Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood & his Merry Mouse. The new cartoon is currently available On Demand or if you want the Blu-ray or DVD you'll have to wait till October 2, 2012 for the US release (Region 1).

In other news, Jazwares is launching a new line of figures and plush based on several classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters. Products hit toy aisles nationwide earlier this month and rollouts will continue into the fall and feature familiar faces from eight popular Hanna-Barbera properties, including The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Tom & Jerry, Yogi Bear, Space Ghost, Secret Squirrel, Captain Caveman and Hong Kong Phooey.

These toys are now available on Amazon. Looks like I know what I'll be getting soon:




Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood & his Merry Mouse I just got wind of Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood & his Merry Mouse yesterday. I don't know much about this movie yet, but from what I've gleaned it's currently out On Demand. There's not been much fanfare about it and I've not seen anything from the WB regard this film. Warner Brothers usually has a big to do about Tom and Jerry films, but it's been all too quiet from them. I've also seen a a street date for the DVD on 10 September 2012, but that is only for Region 2 DVDs. That's all the information I have about this release except for the synopsis:

The fur flies again, when Jerry, as the smallest member of Robin Hood's gang, encounters and joins forces with Tom, a feline squire to Maid Marion.


The movie is 58 minutes in length.
