Tom & Jerry: Pint Sized Pals DVD Review
I like seeing things from my childhood make a comeback. From toys to TV shows, it’s fun to watch my kids get excited about things that I loved as a child. One of those greats from my younger days is the classic cartoon, Tom & Jerry. I remember watching the cartoon growing up and enjoying the cat-and-mouse fun. My sons have been exposed to it on the classic cartoon channel we have and my oldest in particular loves the dynamic of Tom & Jerry.
Created by the famous duo of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry showcases the classic cat and mouse rivalry of Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse. The original series won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject: Cartoon seven times! I think most of us can remember watching this series as children, and it’s great to see another generation getting joy out of the classics.
I received Tom and Jerry: Pint Sized Pals for review. This is a 2-disc set that has over three and a half hours of classic Tom and Jerry as well as a number of contemporary episodes. My kids got a kick out the shorts – especially my older son who loves the slapstick comedy of all the T and J pals. The episodes feature Tom and Jerry with some of their more notable pals – Nibbles the mouse, Quaker the duckling, and one of my favorites, Spike the bulldog. I enjoyed watching these shorts with my kids and am definitely putting these discs in our cartoon rotation!
