Landing Stripling © MGMIn ‘Landing Stripling’ Jerry helps a small bird against Tom.

‘Landing Stripling’ is reminiscent of some Hanna-Barbera Tom & Jerry cartoons, like ‘Little Quacker’ (1950) or ‘The Flying Cat‘ (1952), but unfortunately it’s too unappealing to stand the comparison. Its few good gags are ruined by bad timing, and the sound effects are particularly annoying in this short.

Watch ‘Landing Stripling’ yourself and tell me what you think:

This is Tom & Jerry cartoon No. 120
To the previous Tom & Jerry cartoon: Mouse into Space
To the next Tom & Jerry cartoon: Calypso Cat

‘Landing Stripling’ is available on the DVD-set ‘Tom and Jerry – The Gene Deitch Collection’
