As a birthday present, I got myself this 2-disc DVD get...
It includes all 34 of the Chuck Jones directed Tom & Jerry animated shorts plus two documentaries.
Why do I prefer Tom & Jerry as directed by Chuck Jones versus the ones done by Gene Deitch, Fred Quimby and Hanna Barbara?
- I find that I am tending to favor the key poses in Chuck Jones animations a lot more since the exaggeration and contrast are quite pronounced but somewhat simple and as a result way stronger than in those from other directors. Also the design of his cartoons is stylized a lot more. Gene Dietch is my second favorite Tom & Jerry director. Fred Quimby's work was okay but not great to me.
- GREAT REFERENCE MATERIAL for school!
