Happy Almost end of February!
Next month brings us not 1 but 3 new Tom and Jerry DVDs:
Hello Groundhog day!
The little rodent has shown us some wall decor found here: Tom and Jerry Giant Wall Stickers
Happy Saturday! Man! Where did January go?
Just got word about a new Tom and Jerry DVD coming out from our friends at TV Shows on DVD:
single-disc title would be a mixture of original Tom and Jerry shorts, and cartoons from the more recent Tom and Jerry Tales program, and at the time we had a studio description which said there would be 14 total cartoons on this title. Now Warner has provided an updated product description, quoted at the top, which corrects the information to show there will be 22 installments overall. And here's the list of them:
- Way-Off Broadway
- Martian Mice
- Medieval Menace
- The Million Dollar Cat*
- Invasion of the Body Slammers
- I Dream of Meanie
- Neapolitan Mouse*
- Kitty Hawked
- Flamenco Fiasco
- You're Lion
- Monkey Chow
- Freaky Tiki
- Monster Con
- Royal Cat Nap*
- Spaced Out Cat
- The Two Mousketeers*
- Tom & Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl*
- Johann Mouse*
- Treasure Map Scrap
A while back in November, Warner Bros. Chief Sam Register announced new shows and animated shorts like DC, Looney Tunes, etc… Well, he also announced a new show starring our 2 favorite stars!
It hear it will air sometime around late 2012 or early 2013.
Thanks Pat at toontowncentral.com for the information!
HAVE A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR!
I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
I got a very interesting email yesterday and thought that I would do a posting of it rather than just an email reply. In this email I was asked what was my "top 10 or favorite five" cartoons from the first Hanna & Barbera years. So here are my top 10 and why:
10.) Downbeat Bear I love how persistent the bear is with the dancing and how annoyed Tom gets throughout the cartoon until finally he just gives up and excepts the fate of dancing all night. Plus, my wife and I like to ballroom dance.
9.) Neapolitan Mouse Just a fun adventure in Italy. I liked how Tom and Jerry put aside their differences and fought a common foe.
8.) Flying Cat Dig the cleverness of Tom in trying to get the canary and the bond that is forged between Jerry and the bird.
7.) The Two Mouseketeers Classic. Touche' Pussycat! You can't beat the swashbuckling affair in this 'toon.
6.) Cruise Cat There is a lot of slapstick in this cartoon that I really enjoy and Jerry really uses the ship to his advantage.
5.) Yankee Doodle Mouse This one is pretty clever. I always enjoyed the fight between Tom and Jerry in this one. Plus it's got a great historical value in my opinion.
4.) Johann Mouse I love the music and the grandeur of this cartoon.
3.) Uncle Pecos Crambone! 'Nuff said.
2.) Solid Serenade Is you is? Do I even need to explain this one?
1.) Mice Follies What? Mice Follies? Yup. That is my all time favorite. Why? Because of all the cartoons this one has the most heart. The interaction between Jerry and Nibbles is fantastic and very genuine in my opinion. Plus I really dig the music too.
So there you have it. My top 10.
Honorable mentions go "Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R." , "Catty Cornered", and "Dickie Moe" from the later eras.
Wait...hold on...it's a week from Christmas?!?! Where did this year go?
Anyway! Hope everyone has a happy, joyous and memorable Christmas!
What a year! Today is my daughters first birthday. I can't believe the ride that it has been. Happy Birthday!!
Anyway, not much in the way of Tom and Jerry news. I've got the latest and greatest DVD but haven't watched it yet. See the aforementioned toddler for the reason why I've not had the time to do so. Hopefully, since the DVD is technically my Christmas present, I'll spend some time watching it over the holidays.
Saw this today and thought I'd share because it is so true:
