great animated classic
3 June 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Tom the cat is a soldier assigned to guard the banquet table. Along come Jerry the mouse and his orphan friend Nibbles, looking for something to eat and causing Tom much grief. This short won an Oscar for best cartoon short subject in 1952 and it's easy to see why as it's clever, humorous, and just an all around joy to watch. Utterly brilliant in every way and it retains it's humor upon repeated performances despite the slightly disturbing ending. One of the many many classic Tom and jerry animated shorts. This hilarious animated short can be found on disc 2 of Warner Brother's 2-DVD Spotlight Collection set.
