Blue Cat Blues (Western Animation)

blue cat blues tom

Jerry knows that, when he gets home, his other friends will ask him why he didn't even try to stop Tom. This one is slower in pace and only has a few funny moments, and they are mild I think, in alternative to the laugh-a-minute usual standard. The article did accurately describe a real episode of Tom and Jerry that first aired on 16 November 1956. This is Tom's story but Jerry's as well - Lovesick schmucks in a nutshell - Sitting the two of them on the railroad tracks - Until the train comes with the deadly climax! Tom sits at a bridge considering suicide I guess. But at least Jrry is happy with his girl, or is he really? The car was the last attempt to win her affection - 112% of annual interest rate! With Jerry, I did get the vibe that he really cared for Tom and wasn't gloating or saying I told you so over his loss. And as the whistle get louder and louder - We know the story won't get any better - The iris-out delivers us from the pain - And who knows? We find out Tom was in love, but his girl went for a richer guy instead and married that one. Not wholly successful, but it largely does work.

Tom and Jerry

blue cat blues tom

Tom is sat on some railway tracks, waiting for an express train to come and end his life. First of all, we have a narrator here who tells us during the entire thing why Tom is so depressed and the narrator is actually Jerry. But it is fairly different compared to most of the others. This is Tom's story called the Blue Cat's Blues - When you throw your heart, you're bound to lose - And Jerry threw his heart to his own girlfriend - But it was the same story in the end! It's the last one on the set and I'm hoping that Warner Brothers chooses to release a second Volume soon. Paul Frees also does an outstanding job as Jerry's voice. However, Tom's car was an outdated jalopy that's ultimately flattened by Butch's much longer, more luxurious coupe when he drove up the white cat's house to pick her up. Then another question arrives, and the race starts again.

In fact, the more I watched this, the better it got as I laughed over this soap opera parody. The train's whistle sounds louder as the cartoon fades out, leaving their fates uncertain. After turning to drink, the cat has finally decided that suicide is his only salvation. We do this work every day at no cost to you, but it is far from free to produce, and we cannot afford to slow down. Having seen the white cat for what she really was and how she'd made a fool of his best friend, Jerry vainly urged Tom to give up and let her and Butch have each other.

Blue Cat Blues (1956)

I felt myself really feeling for Tom here especially for how literally broken he looked, I did in the Gene Deitch cartoons too but that was for a different reason entirely. Cause love is sure no heart matter - When you deal with a damn gold-digger! Third, and most importantly, the cartoon is rarely humorous by design and the jokes here are dry chuckles with a little cough and a bubble of blood at the end. Tom's final gift for her was a car—one that he literally sold himself into slavery for twenty years of it to be precise , just so that he could cover 26-years worth of payments at an annual interest rate of 112% and he literally sells an arm and a leg for it. However, the diamond on Tom's ring was so small that you needed a magnifying glass just to get a good look at it. Support Snopes so we continue to pursue the facts — for you and anyone searching for answers.

Blue Cat Blues (Western Animation)

Its premise is so oddly, off-puttingly dark yet its execution is as charming as ever. The music was understated and sensitively orchestrated. Trouble is, Butch has more money to burn. Tom, who has fallen hopelessly in love with a lovely white female cat, seems to have the life of Riley until Butch, the black cat, sees her and wants to win her away from Tom. Then, Jerry learns that his girl has now taken up with another mouse and he decides to join Tom--and the cartoon ends!! Its overall effect is a strangely unsettling one.

Tom and Jerry

I loved the sexy design for the female cat, but if only her looks matched her personality. When people say it is an atypical Tom and Jerry cartoon, they are right, it is very. Tom gave a flower, Butch a wreath as big as her - Tom gave a sample, Butch a truck of perfume - Tom brought a diamond the size of a booger - While Butch's one was shining all over the room! It tells the tale of Tom's spiral into suicidal depression in a deceptively upbeat, generally jovial way. . Jerry narrates this tale that revolves around Tom the cat falling in love and losing her to his rival, Butch. For every gift Tom would give - Butch would prove to be far more combative! Jerry the mouse tried to warn his buddy - He saw the poor Tom losing his head - He felt his ground of love turning all muddy - When she loved another one instead. This time Tom got the roughest deal! I did mention in my review of Down Beat Bear that I remembered loving this cartoon as a child, so I decided to revisit Blue Cat Blues to see whether it held up.

The Story Behind the Heartbreaking Final Episode of ‘Tom and Jerry’

blue cat blues tom

The purpose of a Tom and Jerry cartoon is to make the viewer laugh, albeit with a heavy dose of sadistic violence, but this one is downright depressing. Furthermore, slapstick violence was a signature mark of Tom and Jerry cartoons. Jerry thinks how lucky he is to have his girlfriend Toots, when he spots her in a car with another mouse, the vehicle displaying a 'Just Married' sign. It's difficult to know how to feel about it, really. We might see our friends again!!! One, there's a voiceover narration by Jerry, which is odd, because Tom and Jerry rarely speak.

That said, I can definitely see why people mayn't like Blue Cat Blues very much. It's not bad but it's not great. Who also has a thing for Butch! I'm sure there's a scene that's lifted out of Springtime for Thomas, which ties in with how Tom and the female cat Toots or something or other first met, but that beautiful scene does jar with the scenes before and after that are not so much. The narration tells us the sad tale of how Tom ruined himself over this woman. A dynamite stick could turn him black - A rollercoaster did all the flattening - He could go to Heaven but he was always back - Each episode was like a new beginning. As Jerry recounts, the cat has a broken heart, having lost the love of his life to rival Butch, who has outclassed Tom at every turn. Where it failed was the fact that the public didn't like it.

Tom and Jerry 'Committed Suicide'

blue cat blues tom

It seems he was in love but lost the sexy cat!! Tom is best friends with Jerry here which irked me a bit. His name was Butch and he was stinking rich - He was Tom's rival and she was clearly his -itch! It did, in a slightly less dark turn, feature the characters being taken away by Animal Control for stealing a baby. Because of this—along with the very heavy implications that the iconic duo ends up committing suicide at the end—this short has rarely ever been aired on American television and television in general for that matter. It's told through Jerry's voice which sounds more like a soft Keifer Sutherland than some little mouse that we'd expect. There are good things definitely about the cartoon.
