TOM AND JERRY: SPY QUEST
AN ALL-NEW ORIGINAL ANIMATED FILM
FROM WARNER BROS. HOME ENTERTAINMENT
Release Features Bonus Episodes from Tom and Jerry, New Adventures of Jonny Quest, and Jonny Quest
This recent Tom and Jerry DVD is unlike other Tom and Jerry DVDs I have reviewed recently, in that it is an actual original movie (73 minutes in length), instead of a DVD made up of previously aired episodes. I don't know about you, but I love being able to put a DVD on and have a movie play, rather than decide which episodes to watch, especially when it is a fun show like Tom and Jerry.
I shared in past Tom and Jerry DVD reviews that now my girls are fans of the shows, thanks to all the recent DVD releases from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, Inc. So, when they saw this new Tom and Jerry DVD arrive in the mail, they couldn't wait to watch it. And, when they saw that it was a movie opposed to just episodes from the classic series, they were even more excited to see it. I don't know who was more excited to watch this new release, the girls or my husband and I. Why? Because this original full length movie features Jonny Quest -- yes, I know an unlikely pairing of characters, but it works and this movie has you glued to the screen from opening credits to the end.
You don't have to be a fan of Jonny Quest to enjoy this movie. But, it does make for a must see and must add to your DVD collection, for Jonny Quest fans out there. My husband and I loved this movie, as did my girls. And, I know that your family will, too! So, why not pick up a copy of Tom and Jerry: Spy Quest to watch with your family this summer. It is definitely one DVD you will find yourself watching over and over again.
