Tom and Jerry, the New Series

So my sister is watching another nostalgic series, mentioned already in the title. However, the new episodes of it are rather... missing the point.

When you watch Tom and Jerry, you are not only watching the titular characters getting up to their own tricks, but listening to the accompanying music and audio cues. It's what made the series great, using mixes of different classical music and sounds in tandem with the hilarious animations.

But whatever the producers of the current series think is what made Tom and Jerry, they got it wrong. Now it acts more like most standard american cartoons (see Spongebob, Fairy Odd Parents etc.). There is no actual music used, just random audio mixed in to an amalgam of sound effects. More talking too, which detracts from appreciation of the flow of the episode.

Why am I complaining? Because I can.

Rant Over.
