1975 Tom & Jerry On CN This Weekend
Cartoon Network now has & on the weekends, every Saturday and Sunday @ 7 A.M. (EDT), in a half-hour rotation. And the 1975 Hanna-Barbera New T&J TV cartoons are scheduled to run this wekend!
"Stay Awake Or Else..." (80-01), "An Ill Wind" (80-05) and "No Bones About It" (80-04) will air Saturday, June 25. And "No Way, Stowaways" (80-03), "The Ski Bunny" (80-02) and "Beach Bully" (80-06) will broadcast on Sunday, June 26.
So, set your dial for a while...once again!
And a final word to those of you diehard devotees of Hanna-Barbera's classic MGM Tom & Jerry theatricals from 1940-58 who decree any version out of the realm of this scope as inferior, and plan to raise a big stink should CN or Boomerang ever decide to put the 1975 H-B New T&J made-for-TV shorts back on the air: just remember 2 important things:
- Your TV set has an "Off" button and a remote control!
- You don't have to watch the 1975 H-B New T&J cartoons if any hint of their probable return to cable and satellite (and/or release on DVD!) makes you squirm!
Old Tom & Jerry - good.
Newer Tom & Jerry - bad.
Don't try to fix it if you don't know how to make it.
But I like giant robot bug trouble! - Coop
