Ignore the first review on this. Anyone who dislikes this show, seriously needs help. This is a classic show. A cartoon that is a classic because it's great. Every time you think for a second, children in the 40's had not entertainment. It must have been so boring for them. Well, you don't know how wrong you are, as they had stuff like this! Tom and Jerry for crying out loud, if those kids were anything, they had more than you do today.
Barbera and Hanna are geniuses. They created something so great that there isn't enough ways to appreciated it. Tom and Jerry are some of the best cartoon characters that ever existed. It's just so well done, what more can I say?
I do suggest to avoid the new version of this though, you know, when Tom and Jerry can talk??!! What the hell?! Yes, I know it's dreadful, so just avoid it for the rest of your life. And stick with the original. That's the wisest thing to do.
It's witty, funny, exciting, interesting and just all around amazing. This is what kids should be watching on their screens, instead of ghastly sit-coms or reality shows. This is a timeless show. It'll never get old, and neither will the laughs.
