This allowed us to load directly on iPod for our upcoming road trip. And well woven I found it, as the cat and mice Tuffy shows up as a Munchkin mouse get separated from and reunited with Dorothy's group more than once, on the way answering a question or two we may never have realized needed asking. I loved that the characters looked very similar to original characters and they even used voices that are very similar. It starts out like the 1939 movie redone almost word for word in animation. Dorothy and her dog Toto are whisked to the land of Oz. I will definitely be buying more in this format.
I like it because the real Wizard of Oz is a bit scary. The Tom and Jerry version is the perfect way to introduce little ones to this brilliant classic! But not for long as an all-new villain has surfaced from beneath the magical land, the Gnome King! But not for long as an all-new villain has surfaced from beneath the magical land, the Gnome King! And I was thoroughly delighted when my dear old acquaintance Droopy showed up as a Winkie guard. With the Wicked Witch of the West now vanquished from Oz, Tom and Jerry along with Dorothy are back in Kansas! Munchkins now mice This is fun for everyone in our family. This particular movie was not bad. We just gave this to my daughter for her 3rd birthday last week and she has already seen it about 9 times, asking everyone who comes over if they want to watch it with her! Throughout, I delight in the cleverness with which the Hanna-Barbara characters are worked into the story. There, she is told she will meet the wizard of oz and upon the way she meets memorable friends, while having to deal with an angry witch. Not until Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are rescuing chicks from the broken incubator do we see any big change: Jerry Mouse is on an adding machine keeping count of the chicks! I grew up with the original movie, as did most of us, and i still enjoy it tremendously to this day.
I also greatly appreciate the digital copy. My husband and I love Tom and Jerry, but decided our kids weren't ready for the violent duo. Glad I finally found it here, watched it last night with my little girl. Ever since I had my daughter 3 and a half yrs ago, I've been waiting for the day that she will be old enough to really appreciate the original film. Having captured the Good Witch, the Gnome King and his army are wreaking havoc throughout Oz and need but one item to take control of The Emerald City, Dorothy's ruby slippers! Take to the skies, courtesy of the Wizard himself, with Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion as they make their magical journey. It's the curious and inventive kind of cross-fertilization that has always appealed to me. This is a great movie! With the Wicked Witch of the West now vanquished from Oz, Tom and Jerry along with Dorothy are back in Kansas! They don't take over though and are placed into the story very well.
All she wants is to go home so she follows the yellow brick road to the Emerald City. I highly recommend this movie to kids, grown-ups, and Oz fans! I watched Tom and Jerry as a kid and when we saw the Wizard of Oz spin, I wasn't sure what to expect. After seeing a trailer for it, I've been searching with no luck. . There she meets a good witch and gets some new shoes. Only difference really is that its animated, and Tom and Jerry are placed into the movie as Dorothy's protectors.
They actually pushed their characters into the Wizard of Oz very well! Take to the skies, courtesy of the Wizard himself, with Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion as they make their magical journey. It plays out almost exactly like the original, and there is even a version with the sepia tone in the beginning just like the original. With this movie, they get the feel of the original movie, only a much shorter and kid-friendly version. It's up to our favorite cat and mouse duo to team up, go Back to Oz and save the land they love. And I loved it cuz the writers kept the movie as close to the original Wizard of Oz movie as possible. Our kids enjoyed the songs. .
