Description
Here are all 34 Tom and Jerry shorts that Chuck Jones produced in the 1960s, taking over the characters created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Highlights include "Snowbody Loves Me," "The Unshrinkable Jerry Mouse," "The Year of the Mouse," "I'm Just Wild About Jerry," and "O-Solar-Meow." Two excellent bonus features are a 20-minute program about the Chuck Jones/Tom and Jerry history and Chuck Jones: Memories of a Childhood, a 20-minute documentary made for Turner Classic Movies by Oscar-winning filmmakers John Canemaker and Peggy Stern.

"Jones did his own take on the duo, redesigning Tom with thicker Grinch-like eyebrows and a personality that seemed to be a combination of Jones' own creations Claude Cat and Wile E. Coyote. Jerry became extra-cute and now sported eyelashes and a bigger head. Many of the gags in these Jones T&J would have felt more at home in a Road Runner cartoon. Jones would later agree, saying these were sort of 'Road Runner and Coyote in cat and mouse drag'.... 'Jerry, Jerry Quite Contrary' takes place during a single night of Tom attempting to sleep, but a sleepwalking Jerry unknowingly tries to cause the cat harm. The characters were also placed in variety of settings which the artists obviously had fun designing such as a penthouse apartment, the circus, the Swiss Alps, and even outer space."Golden Age Cartoons
