The Story Behind the Heartbreaking Final Episode of ‘Tom and Jerry’

blue cat blues tom

This one is slower in pace and only has a few funny moments, and they are mild I think, in alternative to the laugh-a-minute usual standard. The duo waits for the oncoming train, which draws nearer and nearer. Who also has a thing for Butch! Where it failed was the fact that the public didn't like it. Cause love is sure no heart matter - When you deal with a damn gold-digger! The cartoon is also presented in Cinemascope. It all becomes a battle of what gifts the two male cats can give to her.

The Story Behind the Heartbreaking Final Episode of ‘Tom and Jerry’

Tom gave a flower, Butch a wreath as big as her - Tom gave a sample, Butch a truck of perfume - Tom brought a diamond the size of a booger - While Butch's one was shining all over the room! This is Tom's story called the Blue Cat's Blues - When you throw your heart, you're bound to lose - And Jerry threw his heart to his own girlfriend - But it was the same story in the end! It's implied that Toots was more subtle about it since the revelation came as a shock to Jerry, or at least because Jerry didn't know he had competition until he saw that Toots got married. I did like how beautiful how some of the animation colours looked, and in regard to the animation I'd say the jewel was the sexy character design of the female cat. Then another question arrives, and the race starts again. There are a few funny moments, like a couple of little words and phrases in Jerry's narration, and I was always fascinated by the lengths Tom and Butch went through to win the female cat's heart, which was what drove me to re-watching Blue Cat Blues in the first place. Furthermore, slapstick violence was a signature mark of Tom and Jerry cartoons.

Tom is best friends with Jerry here which irked me a bit. . Third, and most importantly, the cartoon is rarely humorous by design and the jokes here are dry chuckles with a little cough and a bubble of blood at the end. But it is fairly different compared to most of the others. I have to admit it is not one of my favourites.

We find out Tom was in love, but his girl went for a richer guy instead and married that one. Because of this—along with the very heavy implications that the iconic duo ends up committing suicide at the end—this short has rarely ever been aired on American television and television in general for that matter. Trouble is, Butch has more money to burn. Not being liked by the audience is the worst sin possible in the entertainment business. The music was understated and sensitively orchestrated. Holy shit, was this the last episode of the series or something? The car was the last attempt to win her affection - 112% of annual interest rate!

Blue Cat Blues (Western Animation)

She comes across as very shallow, which actually changed my initial view of her. For every gift Tom would give - Butch would prove to be far more combative! This is Tom's story but Jerry's as well - Lovesick schmucks in a nutshell - Sitting the two of them on the railroad tracks - Until the train comes with the deadly climax! This is Tom's story called the Blue Cat's Blues - When you throw your heart, you're bound to lose - The game is rigged and someone loaded the dice! Not wholly successful, but it largely does work. Now we know where The Sopranos got the idea for the finale, except that at least they made it somewhat ambiguous and not totally soul-crushing. After turning to drink, the cat has finally decided that suicide is his only salvation. It tells the tale of Tom's spiral into suicidal depression in a deceptively upbeat, generally jovial way.

Tom and Jerry 'Committed Suicide'

It's a bizarre choice, to say the least. A dynamite stick could turn him black - A rollercoaster did all the flattening - He could go to Heaven but he was always back - Each episode was like a new beginning. As Jerry recounts, the cat has a broken heart, having lost the love of his life to rival Butch, who has outclassed Tom at every turn. Why not show the cat doing a line of coke or committing some atrocities while they're at it?! Butch's endless coupe drove all over Tom's ambition - You got to wonder what he tried to compensate! It is good, but not as good as I remembered, so when one reviewer for Down Beat Bear said that particular Tom and Jerry cartoon was the last great Tom and Jerry I have to say after re-watching Blue Cat Blues that I agree. I did mention in my review of Down Beat Bear that I remembered loving this cartoon as a child, so I decided to revisit Blue Cat Blues to see whether it held up. Tom sits at a bridge considering suicide I guess. Jerry thinks how lucky he is to have his girlfriend Toots, when he spots her in a car with another mouse, the vehicle displaying a 'Just Married' sign.

Plus, after presenting the ring to her, the white cat revealed to Tom that Butch had already given her a diamond ring of his own—however, 4. Jerry narrates this tale that revolves around Tom the cat falling in love and losing her to his rival, Butch. It did, in a slightly less dark turn, feature the characters being taken away by Animal Control for stealing a baby. While resuscitating Tom, And now we're back to where the short originally started—Jerry, though still sad for Tom, expresses happiness about how his own girlfriend, Toots who looks like the mouse version of the white cat , has remained faithful to him. Then, Jerry learns that his girl has now taken up with another mouse and he decides to join Tom--and the cartoon ends!! Tom, who has fallen hopelessly in love with a lovely white female cat, seems to have the life of Riley until Butch, the black cat, sees her and wants to win her away from Tom. Tom's final gift for her was a car—one that he literally sold himself into slavery for twenty years of it to be precise , just so that he could cover 26-years worth of payments at an annual interest rate of 112% and he literally sells an arm and a leg for it.

Tom and Jerry

Recommended with the caveats above. I felt myself really feeling for Tom here especially for how literally broken he looked, I did in the Gene Deitch cartoons too but that was for a different reason entirely. Not for everyone and proof that these shorts were never intended solely with children as the target audience. That said, I can definitely see why people mayn't like Blue Cat Blues very much. Its premise is so oddly, off-puttingly dark yet its execution is as charming as ever.
