Summertainment: Tom & Jerry duel with a Beach Bully (1975)

The one drawback fans have about Tom & Jerry's 1st run at Hanna-Barbera (1975-78) is that the chases had ended, and the cat & the mouse were BFF's. Anti-violence statutes put into effect while the classic shorts aired on CBS in the 60's put Tom & Jerry in a difficult spot.

In "Beach Bully", Tom & Jerry spend a relaxing day on the beach, but have to deal with a disrespectful feline, finding some assistance from a bulldog and some waves crashing onto the beach.

One of the better entries in the series.

Rating: A.
