tomandjerrymovieAccording to reports (here), has announced the intention to make a live action version of Tom &; Jerry. This is concerning as the at a Tom & Jerry movie (in 1992) had Jerry SPEAKING! I mean it is a : THE MOUSE DOES NOT SPEAK!

Clearly they don’t think that the ’92 version corrupted our childhood enough so are planning to come back for more!

If you take the live-action / CG Garfield as an example, the best scenes in that were when the famous cat was smacking around! Sadly (due to the fact that they used a real bloody dog) they couldn’t do this often due to restraints. If they had made Odie a CG animal, as much cruelty as Garfield could think up could have taken place.

However, in this day and age with little (and not as old men) moaning about films being un-politically correct, I imagine the whole tone of Tom & Jerry will be destroyed! Perhaps Jerry and Tom can both be and have to out-debate each other!

Since are responsible for ruining my at childhood TV, I can only hope that Dangermouse and Count Duckula stays well away from their !

I can only see bad things ahead!

Is this really such a bad thing? Tell me your thoughts on the matter.
