Looking for a Valentine's Day gift for the hubs, or your child, that is all about the classics?
I've got just the perfect DVD for you, that was just released last week!
The Tom and Jerry Show Season 1 Part 2: Funny Side Up is comprised of 13 episodes from the TV show, and features Tom and Jerry and their favorite pals, including Spike and Tuffy. The pursuit takes off as Tom, Jerry and the gang fly through unfriendly skies in Just Plane Nuts. Detectives Tom and Jerry are on the case to find Spike’s missing dog bones in Bone Dry. Love is in the air when a mad scientist transports Tom and Jerry to Paris to meet a girl cat and a girl mouse in Molecular Break Up. Jerry and Tuffy cause havoc on a luxury cruise liner in Cruisin’ for a Bruisin’. These and several other hilarious episodes are featured in this entertaining set.
“With cutting-edge animation and innovative story-telling, The Tom and Jerry Show, has brought a classic cartoon to a brand-new generation of viewers,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing. She added, “The Tom and Jerry Show Season 1 Part 2: Funny Side Up will delight viewers of all ages. We’re delighted to bring another entertaining Tom and Jerry release to consumers.”
Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry emerged during Hollywood’s golden age of animation and became one of the most popular cartoon series in existence. The shorts focus on the never-ending rivalry between Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse. The plots of each short usually center on Tom’s attempts to capture Jerry. Jerry however, is clever and quick on his feet so Tom hardly ever manages to catch him.

Miss Grace adores the Tom and Jerry series, no matter which version she is watching! This collection contains some of her favorites, so she was thrilled to have them on one DVD collection! As always, it is great to know that it is a series that includes classicial music (I always heat "Hey Mom, that's the song from Tom & Jerry!", when listening to any classical music), and at it's heart the cartoons teach a valuable lesson about being bad gets you nowhere, but being smart and thinking out outside of the box, can not only keep you alive, but make you new friends! Though I do have to admit, we've had quite a few scientific ("does that really happen?") questions while watching the cartoons, I look at them as a chance to teach my child scientific and math principles, while she thinks she's just watching cartoons. Always a plus in my book! So if you're looking for a fun, family friendly, Valentine's Day gift, give this DVD a try!
