Animation Classic No.2

Tom and Jerry, ‘Cat Concerto’ by Hanna Barbera at MGM. What can I say about this 1946 Oscar winning short. I’ve managed to track down a really good HD copy of the original uncut version from the youtubes – watch it, watch it!

I grew up on Tom and Jerry. It wasn’t until I was at university and writing my final dissertation (…on Tom & Jerry no less!) that I twigged its the same Hanna Barbera that I’d known from the Flintsones, Yogi Bear, The Jetsons etc etc before TV killed the cinema star…

I can trace back my fascination with synching action to sound with these cartoons, especially this one (…and Tom & Jerry at the Hollywood Bowl) It feels a bit weird putting Mouks_REMIXED next to this classic, but you can see the influence
