Who's in the dog house? It sure isn't Spike in these animated cartoon shorts! In this new DVD offering from Warner Bros., Tom, Jerry, and Spike appear throughout all 22 episodes. This collection features old, classic clips that you might have seen growing up, along with newer cartoons with a completely modern look and feel. They're mixed together throughout the DVD's run time, so you might see a few older ones and then some newer ones. Each episode is about 7 minutes long, so there's always a good place to stop if you don't want to watch the entire DVD at once.
Fans will know that Tom is typically the one to start a fight with Jerry or bully someone else. I think that's what makes these Spike the Dog episodes a treat --- because Spike doesn't like seeing the little guy (be it Jerry or his son, Tyke) get maltreated by Tom. Even Jerry comes to the rescue of those bullied or wronged by Tom. When you stop to think about it, watching Tom and Jerry could be a great segue into talking about bullying with your child. Spike doesn't put up with Tom's nonsense, and he's in cruisin' for a bruisin' if he messes with Spike!
My 7 year old son liked all the episodes --- older and newer. He is a huge fan of Tom and Jerry and loves to watch their antics. What he said he liked about Spike was that "Spike is a dog and he's very funny. And he makes Tom work after he's done something wrong and gets hurt."
