Everyone’s favorite cat and mouse duo Tom and Jerry return to DVD in an all-new set of adventures on Tom and Jerry Tales Volume 6, which will be released by Warner Home Video (WHV) February 3, 2009. The sixth volume of the hit Kids’ WB TV series will feature 15 action-packed cartoons showcasing Tom and Jerry’s latest adventures.
In this volume of Tom and Jerry Tales, Tom and Jerry’s unending pursuit takes them around the world from Africa to Australia and on. The duo also learns some valuable lessons about history, including an episode where Tom inadvertently turns the Declaration of Independence into a paper airplane and an episode where Jerry has a role in the Wright Brothers first flight at Kitty Hawk. Tom and Jerry are also involved in a number of musical adventures that are anything but harmonious — Jerry sabotages Tom’s efforts to win a Flamenco dance contest and Tom tries to avert his girlfriend’s attention from Jerry by singing the blues. Three very cool episodes on this DVD are entirely devoted to the theme of snow and ice. The duo confronts each other on a frozen pond where Jerry wants to skate but Tom plans to play hockey. Tom and Jerry also engage in an all-out snowball battle and later on, find themselves face-to-face with the giant abominable snowmouse.
You can’t beat the original Tom and Jerry cartoons from Hanna-Barbera, but Tom and Jerry Tales does a good job of slapping a new coat of paint on the characters. These cartoons are chock full of cartoon violence, just like the originals. In an age of too much violence in the real world, it’s nice to know you can still smash, chop, and mutilate cartoon characters with impunity and in good fun!
There are no extras to speak of on the DVD except for a few previews of other WB properties coming to DVD, including A Pup Named Scooby-Doo – Season 1, Tom and Jerry Tales, Volume 5, and Pop Go the Wiggles.
This set of 15 episodes is a solid offering from WB Animation. They’re fun, cartoonishly violent, and keep the spirit of Tom and Jerry alive. Be sure to check it out at your local retailers or online. You can also find more information about Tom & Jerry Tales at KidsWb.com.
