Professor Tom © MGMIn ‘Professor Tom’ Tom is teaching a small kitten to chase mice.

Unfortunately for Tom, the unwilling kitten rather wants to befriend Jerry, and they both team up against the disappointed teacher. The result is a fast and funny cartoon with wonderful character animation and great silent acting.

Watch ‘Professor Tom’ yourself and tell me what you think:

This is Tom & Jerry cartoon No. 37

The Robber Kitten © Walt Disney‘The Robber Kitten’ is one of the more annoying entries in the Silly Symphony series.

Being a Silly Symphony, its animation is top notch, especially the character animation of the little rascal Ambrose (or ‘Butch’ as he prefers to be called) and the experienced robber Dirty Bill. But, the story is slow-paced, childish and dripping with morality.

The setting is vague and pretty unconvincing: Bill is clad in a medieval Robin Hood-like costume, while Ambrose is clad in 17th century fashion. A much sillier world as that of ‘The Cookie Carnival’ was brought with much more bravado.

All too typical for the Silly Symphonies of the mid thirties, ‘The Robber Kitten’ is nothing more than beautifully animated pulp.

Watch ‘The Robber Kitten’ yourself and tell me what you think:

This is Silly Symphony No. 51
To the previous Silly Symphony: The Golden Touch
To the next Silly Symphony: Water Babies
