One of the weaker Chuck Jones Tom and Jerry cartoons
16 February 2013 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

And bias has nothing to do with it. I love Chuck Jones and Tom and Jerry. But generally I find his Tom and Jerry output hit and miss in quality, the best are not on par with the classics of the 40s-mid 50s but the worst are at least far better than the abominations that are the Gene Deitch cartoons. The Unshrinkable Jerry Mouse is not terrible as such, Tom and Jerry do have likability,- in fact there's nobody here that makes you hate them- the little kitten is extremely cute and the animation apart from a somewhat scratchy-looking Tom has some colour and fluidity. But The Unshrinkable Jerry Mouse I still found one of the weakest of his output. I really didn't care for the music, the orchestration is rather ugly-sounding and generally there just isn't anything interesting or memorable about it. The cartoon isn't all that funny either, the gags suffer from bad timing, unoriginality and that they seemed to go through the motions. The sound effects while not bizarre just don't add any life and do nothing to enhance the humour. If you want a cartoon where you're laughing at least once a minute, you won't find that in The Unshrinkable Jerry Mouse, you'd be lucky to find one in triple that amount of time. And the story has languid pacing, is very thin and does nothing to surprise or excite. All in all, a lacklustre entry from an animation classic, but again a long way from the nadir of the series. 4/10 Bethany Cox
