More Gifs, OH MY!

Posted: March 26, 2012

OYE! Once I start making animated GIFs I usually can't stop. So here are three more gifs that you can enjoy:



I have a few more in mind that I want to create from "Pecos Pest". Not sure when I'll get to them, but it will be soon.

I mentioned this on Facebook and Twitter, but here it is again. Frederick Gardner is a 2-time Emmy Award winning artist & background designer who worked on Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes. El Frederico has posted his production designs from that movie.

Updates - Round 3: GIFs

Posted: March 19, 2012

Okay, I had planned on having this update last week, but thanks to Global Warming I was enjoying the near 80 degree F weather over the last few days. At any rate, I have new updates for you that include 2 sound clips from "The Cat's Me-Ouch" where Tom is saying "Ah-HA!". You can find the sound bites on Page 4 of the Sounds gallery near the middle of the page.

Also updated is the Animated GIF gallery with 5 new animations. You can check it out in the gallery or just click the links below:




Tom and Jerry In the Dog House
I am a proud father of a 15 and a half month old daughter. My daughter's favorite word/thing at the moment is to point to a dog, any dog live or pictured, and say "woof". In fact, she says "woof" to let my wife and I know that she wants to see a dog. The irony being as the once she is faced with a real dog she doesn't know what to do with about. Why do I mention this? I think WB knows that people like dogs and perhaps they would like to see all the Spike cartoons on one disc. I for one think that this is a great idea. I know a lot of fans of Spike and this disc caters to specifically to that fan base. Though, I also think it can cater to dog lovers as well. So with that aside taken care of, lets get down to the nitty-gritty review..

Containing 22 episodes of dog-centric Tom and Jerry cartoons from the Early Hanna-Barbera cartoons and Tom and Jerry Tales:

  • 24 Karat Kat
  • Destruction Junction
  • Beefcake Tom
  • Bend it Like Thomas
  • Tom's Photo Finish
  • Game Set Match
  • Cat Napping
  • Cat Fishin'
  • The Bodyguard
  • Quiet Please!
  • Solid Serenade
  • Slicked-up Pupv
  • Puttin' on the Dog
  • The Framed the Cat
  • Tot Watchers
  • The Invisible Mouse
  • Pet Peeve
  • Feeding Time
  • DJ Jerry
  • Beach Bully Bingo
  • A Life Less Guarded
  • The Dog House


The Good:
Each cartoon is presented in it's original aspect ratio. The cartoons are crisp and clean. Me thinks that the older Hanna-Barbera cartoons were the ones that were scrubbed clean for the recent Golden Collection DVD/Blu-ray.

I enjoyed the Spike marathon and I think this would be a good addition to the DVD collection for fans of Spike or if you kids just love dogs. My daughter is a bit to young for these cartoons, but I certainly hope that when she's older she will enjoy these as well.

The Bad:
Well, it's a pretty bare-bones DVD. You have different language options and a couple trailers. This is also kind of a double dip since there are other DVDs out there that have these cartoons. However, the double-dip aspect isn't necessaryily a bad thing as this is straight up collection of specific cartoons. Like I said, if you just want the dog centric cartoons in one place, this is the disc for that.

The only really glaring thing that I find bad about this is where is the love for the other eras? There are not Gene Deitch, Chuck Jones, 70's Tom and Jerry, or heaven helps Tom and Jerry Kids?

The Ugly:
You can really tell the difference in the quality of the Hanna-Barbera cartoons with the Tom and Jerry Tales cartoons when present one right after the other. The cartoons are clean and sharp and nothing is truly glaringly ugly about this set.

My final thought is that if you have someone that really likes Spike or has a particular fondness for dog cartoons, this is a great disc. Hardcore Tom and Jerry fans most likely won't be interested in this disc as they will already have these cartoons on other discs. Although, being a hardcore Tom and Jerry fan, I find this disc great for future viewing for a daughter that likes to point at dogs and say "woof".



Updates - Round 1

Posted: March 14, 2012

It has begun!

Okay, overly epic intro, but hey, it's nearly 80 degrees F in March in the Midwest US and I'd rather be outside.

Round 1 of my updates for the week is 21 new images to the picture gallery. Some are large and some are not so large, but all are Tom & Jerry goodness.

Now for a shameless plug! Score the amazing Threadless design, Robots! I was promised Robots!, to help it get printed!: http://bit.ly/xq1kGl. This is a design that I submitted that I hope will win to be made into a T-shirt. Sorry, it's not a Tom & Jerry shirt...not allowed to do that I'm afraid.

See you at the next update!

New Updates Coming soon

Tom and Jerry: In the Dog House (Release date: 3/6)

Synopsis:
Tom and Jerry are at it again! But there's a new ingredient to their classic chase recipe -- just add Spike! It's hound heaven as everyone's favorite bulldog, Spike (and son, Tyke) get in on the fun in this pup-packed collection.

These 22 doggie-delightful shorts are guaranteed to have fans howling! Join Spike and Tyke in their many dealings with the fast and furious duo. Whether he's on guard duty, or simply trying to catch a nap, you can bet that Tom & Jerry's fur-fueled antics are guaranteed to rattle Spike's cage. And an angry Spike usually spells hard times for Tom -- with a little coaxing from Jerry, of course! Leash-up for some K9-filled fun for the entire family!
