Tom & Jerry Tales – The Complete First Season (2006 – 2007/Warner Bros. DVD Set)


Picture: B-     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Episodes: A-



Tom and Jerry are back!  The amazing comical duo, the never-ending chase of cat-and-mouse.  Be it friends, rivals or enemies, at home or on the moon, in the past or future, watch as Tom tries to catch his friend Jerry from getting away with the cheese.  Using whatever he can or some crazy invention Tom tries to corner Jerry, and watch as Jerry uses his wits and cleverness escape Tom's various attempts and contraptions, with mayhem and laughter following right behind them.
Tom & Jerry Tales – The Complete First Season is the latest version of a truly a classic animation team.  Each episode has 3 escapades along with brand new animations.  Let Tom and Jerry, along with a supporting cast of characters entertain you with their adventures.  Depending on the situation, sometimes Tom could be just the housecat trying to stop a thieving mouse or he could be a villainous cat out to get poor Jerry.  And Jerry as well sometimes could be just an innocent mouse or he could be teasing Tom and getting him into trouble.  Either way, whatever the goals might be, Tom and Jerry are always together.
The antics of age old anonymity between a predator and a prey, the series plays on their relationship/friendship/nature between cat and mouse with crazy chases and light hearted comedies.  I remember watching the original shows and shorts when I was young and enjoyed the various situations/places/physical impossibilities the characters were placed in.  The new series has a slightly new animation style with a clearer frame/pixels, while there is no overall plot, it is fun to watch whatever place, time or situation the characters might be in next.
