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

Dicky Moe © MGMTom is involuntarily drafted on a whaling ship of an Ahab-like character in search of the whale ‘Dicky Moe’. On board Tom encounters Jerry, who makes life at sea extra hard for Tom.

Although ‘Dicky Moe’ could have been a nice take on ‘Moby Dick’ , the cartoon completely fails to deliver its promise. Nevertheless, it’s more interesting than most Gene Deitch Tom & jerry cartoons, because of its nice etch-like backgrounds. Moreover, for once Tom actually resembles his former self from the Hanna-Barbera era.

Watch an excerpt from ‘Dicky Moe’ yourself and tell me what you think:

This is Tom & Jerry cartoon No. 122
To the previous Tom & Jerry cartoon: Calypso Cat
To the next Tom & Jerry cartoon: The Tom and Jerry Cartoon Kit
