Tom & Jerry is still awesome. No need to be afraid.

I wonder if all the eras are equally awesome, or if the Gene Deitch and Chuck Jones cartoons are more what people think of when they think of Tom and Jerry, rather than the Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the 40s and 50s. (I'm hoping the 50s shorts show an improvement over the 40s ones since I'll be watching them at some point in the near future.)

Corndog, are any of the shorts I reviewed above ones you remember being awesome?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Professor Tom, A Mouse in Manhattan and the Christmas ones are cartoons I remember fondly from my misspent youth, although I remember watching all of them.

I hope you rewatch A Mouse in Manhattan for the Retrospots! I'll be very curious to read your take.

You named three of the best or most interesting ones, for sure, which is probably comforting for both of us. Puttin' on a Dog is the only other one that should have been a childhood favorite.

I honestly don't remember any specifics, but I always enjoy watching it when I catch it on tv. Always funny to me. But I don't know which eras and animators and whatnot when I randomly catch it.

Thanks for the link! Interesting to hear that "a leading Texas distributor" may have been influential in the continuation of the comically violent series.
