New again

Got a call tonight. Grandsons Luke, 7, and Nate, 5, are hooked on a “new” cartoon, and they wanted to tell Baboo and me about it. Tom and Jerry! I couldn’t believe it. Tom, Jerry and Spike were high on my list of favorites when I was about their age, too. Luke and Nate took turns giving enthusiastic blow-by-blow details of the extreme strategies Tom and Jerry exercised against each other. Violent, yes; funny, yes; and the smallest character always figures a way to come out on top. Everything old is new again.

A Google search on Tom and Jerry cartoons showed 28,700,000 sites. I especially enjoyed the Wikipedia history of the cartoon series.

We watched Tom and Jerry with our kids, and now our granddaughter loves it, too. They don't make shows like that anymore...Have a great day! Kathy
