Great toons - awful prints! (5 stars, with reservations)By rpj (15 reviews) from Poole , 08 Dec 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]There is no denying the quality of the films contained here... It's just sad that they didn't put any effort into restoring these films to their original glory. The USA gets remastered prints on their DVD releases, but we in the UK get fobbed off with the same worn-out prints we've had for years. This is very, very sad indeed...
5 out of 5 for the films
2 out of five for the presentation from Warner Home Video's UK office - hang thy head in shame!!!

T&J Work in ProgressBy InspectorSands (209 reviews) from London , 13 Oct 2010If you're looking to dive in, maybe rent the second collection rather than this one, which is a bit slow to start. The second page, to be fair, is the Tom & Jerry we know and love, with the same traditional theme song. For historians, the first cartoon is an eye opener: Tom is referred to by the bossy black houseservant as Jasper, and he is an ugly, sadistic, brutish animal with a face like Edward G Robinson and a manner more like the crocodile in Disney's Peter Pan. Jerry stays mostly the same, but Tom gradually changes into the cheeky, lithe character we come to know and also changes colour from light grey and white to navy and white, then dark grey and white - an evolution that would have even Darwin scratching his head! The cartoons also gradually become more surreally slapstick, an as they become more violent they also seem less sadistic, as it's clear that either character will ultimately just bend back into shape.
Look out for The Night Before Christmas, though its unexpectedly moving ending is largely due to Tom being in his unevolved state. You can also pick up this one on youtube, so if you have a decent computor you may want to save on a rental.
