Tom and Jerry The Movie (1992)

When the cat and mouse duo returned to the silver screen...

Tom and Jerry: The Movie is a 1992 American animated musical buddy comedy film produced and directed by Phil Roman and released in Germany by Turner Pictures and in United States by Miramax Films and LIVE Entertainment. It is a feature-length film starring the characters from the Tom and Jerry series and their first and (so far) only one to receive a wide theatrical release.

Why It RocksEdit

  1. It brought Tom and Jerry back to the movie screen, after 25 years of retirement.
  2. Despite most of the story's lack of focus on the titular protagonists, it does have a great message about friendship that does associate with Tom and Jerry themselves. Being a mix of friends, friendly rivals, bitter rivals, and frenemies since birth, it gives the audience that a sign of friendship that no matter your differences and times you continuously fight, you could still accept each other bonding over a mutual sentiment towards an unpleasant experience with one another and not be able to enjoy life without one another, especially when Tom and Jerry themselves need each other in reality and not just for the sake of being able to survive. Which is what made Tom and Jerry's friendship/rivalry extremely iconic to begin with. On an additional note, Tom and Jerry's relationship still remains faithful, yet it adapts them to one of America's most heroic duos.
  3. Excellent voice acting.
    • At last, Tom and Jerry finally SPEAK, thanks to both voice actors, Richard Kind and Dana Hill.
  4. While this film had several funny moments, it had some slapstick comedy moments.
    • As brief as Droopy's appearance is, it's arguably the funniest moment in the film.
  5. Teriffic animation.
  6. It spawned the "We've got to have... money!" meme.
  7. It was the first Tom and Jerry feature film, even though it was the only one made for theaters to date.
  8. Superb soundtrack.
  9. With six songs for this film, it was the only Tom and Jerry production to be a musical.
    • The discovered Icelandic version makes the songs catchier.
  10. Some moments are touching or heartwarming.
    • The most heartwarming moment of the film, was the Special Thanks credit, at the end of the film.
      • "Special Thanks to Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera, the original creators of Tom & Jerry"
  11. A clever in-joke referencing Tom and Jerry's creators.
  12. It hilariously spoofing most of the Disney animated films of the 1990s.
  13. Memorable characters, including Pugsy, Frankie and Tex Avery's major star, Droopy.
  14. It was one of animation's cult classics, three years before Toy Story was released.
  15. It spawned a video game based on the feature film.
  16. "HEROES! Cat and mouse save billionaire heiress!"
