not sure if this is good new...

Posted: January 22, 2009

I don't know if today, January 22, 2009, should be considered a dark day or just one filled with dread and foreboding; it's certainly sent a chill through me that's for sure. I just got wind of a planned Tom and Jerry movie.

"Warner Bros. is turning to Tom and Jerry to create its own "Alvin and the Chipmunks"-like family franchise." They are going to have the film "live-action/animated combo". Why? Please tell me why? Call me a purist, but I would have liked them to at least attempt to make it traditionally animated. Oh and the idea of an origin story on how Tom and Jerry met doesn't sound like a good idea conceptually the cartoons sort of made it out that Tom and Jerry were always together and always at each others throats. I sincerely hope that they don't have them talking or singing like the first Tom and Jerry movie.
