Miss Grace adores Tom & Jerry, and she loves dragons, so this DVD was perfect for her! She was glued to show the whole way through! Parents will enjoy guessing who/what movie the characters (other than Tom & Jerry), and scenes, are based on, while kids will enjoy this new movie! And afterwards, there is a great little activity book with games and puzzles for the kids too! This is a great family night DVD and perfect for saving for a Halloween treat too!

About Tom & Jerry:

Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, in 1940 (that's the original title graphic above!) Tom and Jerry emerged during Hollywood’s golden age of animation and became one of the most popular cartoon series in existence. They conceived and directed the shorts for 18 years for MGM Studios! In fact, the original series is notable for having won seven Academy Awards, tying with Walt Disney's Silly Symphonies as the theatrical animated series with the most Oscars! Who knew? After Churck Jones directed the shorts for a few years in the 1960s, Hanna Barbera studios came back in the 1970s with hit television series.
