Tom & Jerry are one of my favorite characters from Hanna/Barbera along with Penelope Pitstop and Scooby Doo.

This short is a fairly good, and it has a couple of good gags like Jerry scattering ash from the ash tray in a way like a marching band drum, and in the end where Tom in blackface does a Stepin Fetchit routine. Of course, cartoons from the 1930s to the 1950s contain gags that included stuff that appear to have racial or ethnic prejudice, which were a common place in American society at that time, so keep that in mind.

So like I had said, this is a fairly good short. But one last thing is that I didn't get the old horse gag, I mean what's it going' do? stink up the whole house? or crap everywhere?


*NOTE*
3/4 Stars for a mediocre gags and one that didn't make sense (to me)

I found this an enjoyable Bugs Bunny cartoon with story written by Tedd Pierce. Normally I don't really like parody; in fact I hate it! Also I'm not too crazy about Superman either because I'm rooting for Batman. But I do love it when Bugs becomes "SUPER RABBIT!" defending the rabbits of "Deepinharta," Texas from Cottontail Smith the rabbit hater. I mean, dude! What have you got against rabbits huh?

One more thing to point out is that I really against animal testing - in real life that is. Like Bugs was a test subject in the laboratory of a scientist who has invented a "super carrot," which when eaten by Bugs gives him Superman-like powers. Overall I give this short an 3/4 stars for a mediocre story-line.

I like it, I thought it was enjoyable film and Sylvester gave us all a great musical performance; I should tell you all that this cartoon is a remake of an early Friz Freleng cartoon "Notes to You" starring Porky Pig and an unknown cat. But in this short, Elmer Fudd is the sleep-deprived victim.

I do remember having "Notes to You" on VHS as a kid, but sadly it has been lost over the years. You know after watching this short, I found it even better than the other one.The one thing that disturb me, was that dumb-lookin' tabby sang like a girl! Like O-M-G! What the f*** was that all about?! So anyway, it is a good short. But at a 2 out 4 star rating for a mediocre storyline and one disturbing sight. But a wonderful performance by Sylvester.
