Toon Legends: The Mansion Cat (2000)

Tom & Jerry entered the 21st century with an all-new short, commissioned by Cartoon Network.

"The Mansion Cat" marks the end of an era, as it was the last T & J short that co-creator Joseph Barbera had a hand in, not to mention a voice. Barbera was the lone voice actor in the cast, playing Tom's owner, and doubled as story consultant, which gave this a nostalgic feel.

The artwork isn't as lush and rich as the golden years of the 40's, but this is Tom & Jerry at their best.

Rating: B+.
