Not much better than Deitch
20 July 2003 | by themadstorkSee all my reviews

By this point Hanna and Barbera had gotten pretty lazy about Tom and Jerry. The animation isn't so good; it's worse than when Jones did them in fact, and the cartoon just isn't funny. The baby crawling in and out of danger is a gag that isn't funny to begin with and rapidly becomes downright mind numbing, and the baby sitter beating Tom and Jerry just irritates me. Compared to Deitch it isn't too bad; it doesn't seem like a Tom and Jerry themed nightmare you might have, but it shows how far they'd fallen from their glory days.
