Tom and Jerry are back!

Something about Tom and Jerry always bothered me as a kid. I grew up around a lot of animals and I was keenly aware of the fact that Tom should be eating Jerry no matter how "smart" Jerry might be. Mind you with that said I've seen an awful lot of lazy fat cats in the last decade that certainly would not challenge Jerry's wit and fast pace. Heh.. but this again comes from the girl who preferred to take naps in the barn vs sleep in her bed. Yes I can honestly say "yes" to that whole "Were you raised in a barn?" as I did indeed spend most of my childhood on the back of a horse.

As I've gotten older Tom and Jerry represents something more to me, it seems as we have entered this decade that kid's freedoms are slowly vanishing. Not that I am that old, but when I was little I left the house after I got home from school and usually did not return until close to dark or until the first fireflys could be seen. It was not uncommon for me to be on the other side of our neighborhood or once I got horses even up to a mile away from home at any given time. I never had a cell phone, I didn't check in, I just enjoyed myself, the outdoors, and the other kids available to me. I was home when I said I would be, and I never worried about a stranger. Well now every TV show you watch it seems kids are getting abducted or worse and so many cartoons feature animated "battles". What ever happened to good ole Tom and Jerry?

Well don't panic Tom and Jerry is still out there and Tom and Jerry Tales brings Tom and Jerry into present day. Animated in the same style as the originals but with an updated theme that today's kids can relate to. Honestly If I hadn't known they were new I would have done a double take as they are just how I remember them.

Take a look for yourself. This is from the second volume.

I adore Tom & Jerry. My husband adores Tom & Jerry. My daughter Tom & Jerry. My dad even adores Tom & Jerry. The beauty of it is how timeless and universal it is.

What i like is that the same slapstick comedy of Tom and Jerry is timeless. I loved them as a kid and my kids now think they are hilarious. My mom says she has always loved watching Tom and Jerry too. Alot better than all the "violent" cartoons they have out now.

What I like most about tom and jerry is that it reminds me of simpler time. The animation isnt great compared to todays standards and there isn't a lot of voice acting in them but thats what makes them special. I have my children watching them now. They were resistant at first but now love them.

I like Jerry best. He's so cute and has a sarcastic wit.

My two sons enjoy watching the "Tom and Jerry" cartoons when they were younger that in the original that I knew! Like you, I lived in a neighborhood where we could be outside until midnight and not worry about too much! Actually, I think Tom and Jerry have a mutual respect for one another. Cindi

Alicia Webster said...

I love how they don't feel obligated to be politically correct. They have fun, get over-excited, and run rampant all over everything without feeling that they must stop to impart some great moral truth every five minutes. Sometimes, heaven forbid, cartoons are just meant to be entertaining and a form of escapism.
