4.0 out of 5 stars The best modern interpretation of Golden Age cartoons March 23 2008
By A. Gammill - Published on Amazon.com
There's plenty of reviews here happily reporting "my kids/grandkids love these." So here's an opinion from an adult who grew up on the classic Tom & Jerry shorts of the 1940's and 50's. I was really concerned that these new cartoons would bear no resemblance to the older ones. After all, modern-day incarnations of Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, Popeye, and many others are hard for us classic animation fans to watch. But I'm happy to report that Tom & Jerry Tales actually retains the spirit of the original Hannah-Barbera shorts. Sure, the animation has a slightly more contemporary look, with regard to shading of the characters. But it's not nearly as grating as the three-dimensional effects most hand-drawn animation goes for these days. Most importantly, the action and sense of fun are still there. I wasn't surprised to find the violence toned down a bit (unlike the original theatrical shorts, these cartoons ARE aimed at children), but poor ol' Tom still gets pounded with regularity.

We adults who still enjoy cartoons are fortunate that so many Golden Age shorts are now available. But if you're itching to try something new that honors the cartoons you grew up with, give this one a try. I know I'll be buying the rest of the volumes in this series. No, they'll never replace the Tom & Jerry of the Good Ol' Days. . .but these well-made cartoons are the closest we'll ever come to seeing animation like that again.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not the classic Tom & Jerry Jan. 7 2009
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this for my young son who loves to watch classic Tom and Jerry. I didn't realize it was a newer incarnation of the show. They are OK. Not as good as the classic Tom and Jerry but since only a limited number of classics are shown on TV and we've seen them all many times the novelty of the cartoons on this DVD made it worthwhile. But if you are looking for good old Tom and Jerry, this is not it.

My daughter is five years old and plays this DVD from time to time, even shows it to her friends visited our house. Most importantly, we bought the DVD six months ago and she has not lost interest in it. Per her request, we are buying all the Tom & Jerry DVDs.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit different than the original version Feb. 5 2008
By Robert M. Bratcher Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
My review is from only seeing the first cartoon Ho Ho Horrors. I haven't played the full disc yet and will soon as I really love T&J. For somebody that grew up with the original version this is a bit different from what I expected but still good. All the fun is still there although it seems they took the mild violence out and made the cartoons more PC for young kids of today. For example in the first cartoon they brought back Mammy Two Shoes as a white woman (instead of black) & call her Mrs Two Shoes. That was a bit of a shock but understandable for todays generation. I'll agree with the other reviwers that young kids (and older cartoon loving folks like me) will like this new version of T&J. It's good...
