From TibbyH :

This cartoon is so good, it's driving me NUTS! The Tom & Jerry theatricals took a while to migrate from the slower paced early entries to the faster more violent shorts we know associate with the series. In my personal opinion, this is when the series started to feel like what we know it as today and is up their with best in the series. My favorite thing about the MGM cartoons were how they were able to elevate simple premises into energetic works of art. What is this cartoon about? A cat and a mouse chase each other while the cat tries to keep a bulldog asleep. Oscar worthy? Well, yes. The excellent timing and the addictive fast paced animation are the reasons this is a classic. Simple doesn't mean bad. Simple plots can be boosted by great animators like Irv Spence and Ken Muse and a great team of directors. Not to mention Scott Bradley's cartoony musical score, which always helped to elevate this and most every MGM cartoon. Tom's desperation to chase Jerry and keep Spike asleep is fun to watch. Just when Tom's got it figured out, Jerry right there to ruin his plan. You can never go wrong with watching a good Tom & Jerry cartoon (this being no exception).
