My granddaughter, Kristen, and I, watched our favorite animated cat and mouse duo to get in the Halloween spirit. We had a ghoulishly good time with, Tom and Jerry, and you can, too, as they scared up some family fun this Halloween. Tom and Jerry: Tricks and Treats, is available today on DVD from Warner Home Video (WHV). This “spooktacular” collection showcases 20 Tom and Jerry cartoons plus two bonus cartoons. Tom and Jerry: Tricks and Treats retails for a suggested retail price of $19.97.
Tom and Jerry shared spooks galore in this monster collection. With 22 eerie cartoons, our goodie-bags were overflowing with fun. There were tricks and treats at every turn, from ancient Egypt to Transylvania, from creepy houses to haunted forests, the hair-raising fun is non-stop. Tom and Jerry mingle with ghosts, mummies, werewolves and witches. They have a bounty of tricks up their sleeves to entertain you. It’s a “scare-iffic” good time your whole family will enjoy.
We were a little surprised at something we felt was missing in the collection of movies. We kept searching for a fun trick-or-treating movie, but never found one, which was disappointing.
In Over the River and Boo! The Woods, Tom and Jerry get lost in a haunted forest. Tom leaves home to become a witch’s companion in The Flying Sorceress. In Haunted Mouse, Tom is put under a spell by Jerry’s magician uncle. Jerry meets a bat who looks just like him and together, they trick Tom into believing the bat is Jerry’s flying ghost in Bats What I Like About the South.
Legendary monster hunter, Van Helsing, chases after Tom when he’s transformed into a werewolf in Monster Con. In Which Witch, Tom is a servant to a witch who needs a mouse to complete her magic potion. Jerry discovers the secret tomb of an ancient Egyptian cat in Tomb it May Concern. In Spook House Mouse, Tom and Jerry find themselves in an abandoned fun house where they embark on a rickety ride featuring lots of spooky attractions. These and several other “fang-stastic” shorts are featured in the collection.
