    Those weird Czech ones with the kettle drums and the Dickie Moe. They are bonkers and awesome.

    Chuck Jones' version was all right, but got old quickly. So much so that they actually did clip shows.

    Can't stand the originals. One of the most boring cartoons of that era. The animation is fluid but there is nothing else worthwhile going on.

    I was a huge fan of Tom and Jerry growing up. I preferred the first era (those produced by Fred Quimby) to anything that came afterwards. There are a few clunkers in that bunch (Heavenly Puss, which I have basically campaigned against since I was 5, and any short in which Mammie Toe Shoes, who is a horrible stereotype of African Americans, appears. But, for the most part, it was a good era. The Chuck Jones ones were good, but the Gene Deitch ones legitimately freaked me out with their weird design.

    Obviously the original run of T&J, the 50s to 60s versions were a bit strange for my liking.
