A nice short
29 December 2003 | by rbverhoefSee all my reviews

'Busy Buddies' is a nice animated short where Tom and Jerry have to work together. The babysitter does nothing but talking on the phone to one of her friends while the baby keeps crawling away. Tom and Jerry have to make sure nothing happens to the baby. It's a nice and pretty funny short. It is fun to see the cat and the mouse work together for a change.
