I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas!
So the third to the last day of December I give you my final update for the year 2002. It is a link! :-] For those of you that are searching for Tom and Jerry jewelry look no further than here: http://www.thebirdhouse.com/dept3/
Finally had some time today, 22 Dec 2002, that I played an really fun game. Thanks to the people of NewKidCo.! Tom and Jerry: War of the Whiskers is a really FUN game. Ok, here's the scoop: as with anything with Tom and Jerry there is fighting involved. This is a fighting game, in the vain of Tekken, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, but without the realistic blood, gore and violence. This has safe cartoon violence...what did you expect from Tom and Jerry? You get to play as individual characters and go through 5 levels of combat to unlock another character.
This is just a fun game! I am having a blast playing the game!! The controls take a bit of getting use to and there are some moves that the computer does that I can't seem to figure out how to do...yet :-] There are 11 characters to play as: Tom, Jerry, Spike, Butch, Nibbles, Tyke, Duckling, Eagle, Monster Jerry, Robot Cat, and Lion. I'll try to get some screen shots soon; but with the Holidays being here, updates may not happen for a while.
So for those last minute Christmas Shoppers, might I suggest getting Tom and Jerry: War of the Whiskers for that Tom and Jerry fan with the Playstation 2! I may be too late to order, but you can always get the game or DVDs at Best Buy, Circuit City, Wal-mart.
Only 4 more days till Christmas and what do I bring but lots of links to do your shopping...
For those of you that like to ride motorcycles:
or those that have cell phones http://www.ahdoc.com/tienda/index.html Search around the site, they have Tom and Jerry "faces"
or those that like figurines: http://pages.tias.com/7602/PictPage/1921007755.html
I couldn't stop...I've added 2 more wallpapers today December 15.
Also, for those that are looking for a personal check design with Tom and Jerry on them, look no further than: Clarke American
As promised...I made some updates, though only minor. Today is Saturday the 14th of December and I've added Clint Clobber and Sidney Elephant to the Character bios page. These characters where in a few episodes during the Gene Deitch years.
I've also added 4 more pics in the Wallpaper section...2 that I designed.
I've fixed the displays on the news archive...for those 4 people that actually check the archives.
More updates to come.
Just a quick head's up today, December 13th.
Tom and Jerry videos! Volumes 1-6 are already available (as have been reported) but volumes 7 and 8 are due for release in the UK on 10th February.

Thanks Pete for the notice.
I'm looking to do some more updating here in the next couple of weeks...hopefully sometime around Christmas :-]
Also, just got an email from a fan:
They've posted the episode guide to the February '03 release of the new Tom & Jerry DVD. Go to www.dvdtoons.com.
Thanks Mike for the info!
I'm happy and sad at the same time...the details say that the episodes are in full frame and I noticed that a few of them were originally in Cinemascope. I wished they'd release things in their original glory! Ah well, beggars can't be choosers, I'm happy that more Tom and Jerry DVD's are coming out.
Ah the weekends...I finally had a weekend all to myself just to relax and watch movies. One DVD in particular was watched yesterday afternoon to allow me to review (sort of) it here today, November 18.
Chuck Jones: Extremes and In-betweens. A very good documentary on Chuck Jones and I'm not saying that just because I'm promoting it. The focus is more on his years at Warner Brothers, since that's were most of his career was spent and that is what he is most know for. They mention his work on Tom and Jerry for only a minute or so. So for any information or work about Tom and Jerry that you are hoping for in this DVD, you won't find it. Regardless of that, Chuck Jones was a master director and one of the best in the business. So if you are fan of animation and the people behind them, this is a good DVD to add to your collection; Especially if you really dig Warner Brothers cartoons. I'll right a more detailed review and description of the DVD soon.
So if the Powers That Be ever stop by here, how about something like the Chuck Jones dvd for William Hanna, Joseph Barbera, and Gene Deitch documentaries!?!
November seems to be a busy month for this site..anyway. For those of you that are interested in original art, Christine is selling an original drawing of Jerry. Email here for specifics about it.
Here's the image of the piece she is selling: Jerry
He's only 3" x 2" on the paper but he's matted & framed with a brush color spot next to him of which he use to be painted.
