Director: Gene Deitch
Release Date: April, 1962
Stars: Tom & Jerry
Rating: ★★½

In ‘Landing Stripling’ Jerry helps a small helmeted bird against Tom.

‘Landing Stripling’ is a classic chase cartoon, reminiscent of some Hanna-Barbera Tom & Jerry cartoons, like ‘Little Quacker’ (1950) or ‘The Flying Cat‘ (1952). Unfortunately, the short is too unappealing to stand the comparison. The gags are not that bad, but the silent comedy is ruined by bad timing. Moreover, the sound effect and vocalizations 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’
