As is the case with most Tom and Jerry cartoons, a lot of fun and beautifully animated
Some of the story mayn't come much of a surprise, but any fan of Tom and Jerry will thoroughly enjoy The Dog House. I most certainly did. It was interesting to find a rare occurrence in where you don't feel sorry for Tom and where despite his threats that Spike is a little tamer than usual. The Dog House is well paced, and has a lot of fun gags, especially with Spike as a daisy and Tom with the steam-roller/lawnmower machine. The animation as ever is detailed, clean and sumptuously coloured, while the music is upbeat and catchy as well as managing to compliment and enhance the quality of the gags. All three characters are very entertaining to watch. Tom and Jerry play to their strengths, and that is the same with Spike, who is actually the characters we feel for most this time around.
Overall, fun and beautifully animated. Not among Tom and Jerry's masterpieces but still one to be enjoyed thoroughly. 9/10 Bethany Cox
