Review: Tom & Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures Vol. II

I love the classic cartoons! And thanks to Hub (the TV channel) and these great classics coming out on DVD, I'm able to share them with my children. The latest release, coming out today July 5, 2011, is a collection of great Tom and Jerry cartoons! I remember watching some of these with my brother when we were little. My kids are just mesmerized by them. I mean a cat and mouse who can beat each other up but never seem to get hurt?? I can't believe we were allowed to watch it!! What happened to cartoons like that?

Here's a little bit about:
Tom & Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures Vol. II

That rip-roaring animated duo is back in action on Tom and Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures V2, a fun-filled release comprised of several beloved shorts directed by such animation greats as Hanna-Barbera, Chuck Jones and others. In Tops With Pops, Tom and Jerry come across a very grumpy Spike the dog and his adorable pup, Tyke. Tom is turned into a werewolf cat on Monster Con.  The tussling twosome conducts an orchestra in Tom and Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl. On Saturday Evening Puss, Jerry’s beauty sleep is interrupted when Tom invites his buddies over for a party that includes plenty of loud music. In Snowbody Loves Me, Jerry takes refuge from the snow by hiding in a shop filled with delicious cheese. Tom is a servant to a witch who needs a mouse to complete her magic potion in Which Witch.

Other featured shorts include Of Feline Bondage, The A-Tom-inable Snowman, Surf-Bored Cat, Duel Personality, Is There a Doctor in the Mouse?, Haunted Mouse, The Declaration of Independunce and Kitty Hawked.

“This is an entertaining collection of newer and classic Tom and Jerry shorts that we have put together specifically to appeal to a younger audience,” said Jeff Brown, WHV Executive Vice President and GM of Non-Theatrical Franchise. He added, “Kids of all ages love Tom and Jerry because the premise of each cartoon is conveyed through the use of images and music, and not words, so even very young children can appreciate these cartoons. We think fans will embrace this volume of the Fur Flying Adventures series and they’ll look forward to future installments of it.” 

My Take: I must say I was a little disappointed in my kids. They liked Tom and Jerry but they just weren't into this one as much as me...LOL. I love Which Witch! I can totally remember as one of my favorites growing up! Oh well! My husband and I love this one and it's great for movie night with the kids. So if you want to start introducing your kids to the classics, I suggest this is one you really need to pick up!

Buy it: Running time is 99 minutes (perfect for shorter car trips). It contains 14 classic cartoons. This DVD and Vol. I can be purchased nationwide for the SRP of $14.97.
