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.
