Toon Rock: Rock 'n' Rodent (1967)

Tom & Jerry's 1967 entry, "Rock 'N' Rodent", is actually a semi-remake of "Saturday Evening Puss", released 17 years earlier, when Bill Hanna & Joe Barbera were still at MGM.

As you can tell from the title, this time, it's Jerry who's the jazzman, playing drums for a hot combo in a basement club in his building. While Carl Brandt (ex-The Famous Adventures of Mr. Magoo) was credited with the music, noted jazzman David Benoit also pitched in, but went uncredited. Now, let's scope out the swinging sounds.....

Like, really hot, man.

Rating: A.
