Storyline

The Hanna-Barbera-created Oscar-winning cat-and-mouse team of Tom & Jerry returned to TV in an hour-long stretch of new adventures. Here, T&J, after years of rivalry, have become the best of friends (and Jerry dons a red bow tie, so the animators would be able to "fragment" his movements), in episodes wherein they roamed the world competing in sports, enduring on-the-job misadventures, running afoul of dastardly villains, solving mysteries and helping others. In the first season, three 7-minute New Tom & Jerry segments alternated with two 10-minute ones concerning a 40-foot purple ape, Grape Ape (voiced by Bob Holt) and his fast-talking beagle buddy, a carnival hustler answering to the unlikely moniker of Beegle Beagle (voiced by Marty Ingels), or "Beegley Beagley," as G.A. would lovingly refer to him. The second season ushered in 16 6-minute segments of The Mumbly Cartoon Show, a new Hanna-Barbera comedy/mystery concerning a snickering plainclothes man detective hound named Lt. ...

Elementary school anger
31 May 2018 | by leloupbleuSee all my reviews

Growing up, Tom and Jerry would be on TV right when I got home from school and I loved it. I Looked forward to the zany humour.

Then this iteration started playing instead. And it was truly awful.

I don't know what that says about me, as I grew up to be a non-violent person, but the disappointment I felt when I came home and discovered this "friends" version was airing, caused urges inside of me that could almost be described as violent.

Throughout elementary school, Tom and Jerry would continue to play in the same time slot, rotating between the great pre-70's shorts, the not so great 80's version and the absolutely terrible 70's version.

Whether I was in grade 2 or grade 6, I found this 70's version unwatchable. So really young me and pre-teen me felt the same way about this dreck.

Without the violence, it relied on the lamest of plot situations. The same message over and over again - they had to work as friends to resolve a problem. And it was about as funny as Christian after school specials dealing with teenage pregnancy or parental alcoholism. I know because I would get exposed to them when I had to channel surf in the vain hope of finding something else to watch.

Half star for forcing me to go outside and play, and another half star for influencing the episode of the Simpsons when Marge tries to make Itchy and Scratchy cartoons non-violent.
