Tom is a cat. Jerry is a mouse. Tom and Jerry are locked in an
eternal game of cat and mouse – with often hilarious
consequences. Tom and
Jerry: Whiskers Away collects 10 action packed
instalments from the classic Tom and Jerry cartoon series –
transporting the famous pair around the world –still ending up
at each others throats!
The situations Tom and Jerry find themselves in are not complex,
nor are they meant to be, but they are a lot of fun. Kids of
all ages will get a kick out of these classics of animation –
the speechless Tom and Jerry still managing to have real
character thanks to the skill of the great Hannah Barbara
animators. Special mention must also go to those composers
responsible for the soundtracks of each short, which manage to
further the stories despite the absence of dialogue.
Episodes featured on Tom and
Jerry: Whiskers Away include The Two Mousecateers,
Texas Tom, In the Hollywood Bowl and Cruise Cat. Whilst Tom and
Jerry might not be as familiar to kids today as the Looney Tunes
and Disney stable of characters this collection will hopefully
go a long way to endearing them to a whole new generation.
Tom and Jerry: is a barebones release, the only special feature
included is a very short How to Draw Tom and Jerry featurette,
which turns out to be more watch while someone else draws Tom
and Jerry really fast than a step by step instructional guide.
Also included are trailers for other features including
Tom And Jerry: The Movie
– where they talk!!
