Did you know that Tom & Jerry is considered the longest-living rivalries in the history of American cinema? It’s really fascinating what you can learn about the classics these days! Tom & Jerry have been around for as long as anyone I know can remember, beginning in the 1940s before color television was even an option in the United States. What is great about Tom & Jerry: In the Dog House is that it shows some of these early episodes, like:
- “Puttin’ on the Dog” (1944)
- “Solid Serenade” (1946)
- “Tom’s Photo Finish” (1957)
- “Tot Watchers” (1958)
And of course it has Tom & Jerry Tales, the T.V. episodes that began in early 2000, something a bit more modern. Although honestly, kids love Tom & Jerry despite the difference in animation styles. There is something about the cat vs. mouse antics that we can all identify with, or at the very least, find great humor in. Tot Watchers, circa 1958, is one of my favorite all time Tom & Jerry episodes! I’m sure you remember it too!
Tom and Jerry are at it again! But there’s a new ingredient to their classic chase recipe — just add Spike! It’s hound heaven as everyone’s favorite bulldog, Spike (and son, Tyke) get in on the fun in this pup-packed collection.
These 22 doggie-delightful shorts are guaranteed to have fans howling! Join Spike and Tyke in their many dealings with the fast and furious duo. Whether he’s on guard duty, or simply trying to catch a nap, you can bet that Tom & Jerry’s fur-fueled antics are guaranteed to rattle Spike’s cage. And an angry Spike usually spells hard times for Tom — with a little coaxing from Jerry, of course! Leash-up for some K9-filled fun for the entire family!
I don’t believe I need to tell you how wonderful Tom & Jerry would be for family Saturday morning cartoons. Tom & Jerry are classics that have outlived the eras in supreme fashion, driving each other crazy for decades and we love them for it. It’s nice to see them together in Tom & Jerry: In the Dog House with Spike and his little one Tyke (who I have always loved! he’s so cute!). This is certainly a DVD you purchase to keep and share with your family through the years because they’ll never grow old or tiring. They’re antics will outlive us all and one day our grandchildren will giggle at the same videos that we had once from our parents generations. That’s the beauty of a classic.
