A mother leaves her baby in the care of teenage babysitter Jeannie while she goes out for a couple of hours, during which time the girl spends most of her time on the telephone, chatting to her friends. While Jeannie is busy gabbing, the baby crawls out of its pram and into several precarious situations, only to be saved in the nick of time by Tom and Jerry.
Tot Watchers doesn't appear to be very popular with the other reviewers here on IMDb, but while it is certainly no classic, I enjoyed it more than the last few T&J shorts (Royal Cat Nap, The Vanishing Duck and Robin Hoddwinked). I like how the little nipper repeatedly gets into potentially fatal scrapes only to be saved by the cat and mouse at the last moment—it reminds me a lot of those Roger Rabbit shorts where Roger has his work cut out for him looking after Baby Herman.
5.5 out of 10, rounded up to 6 for IMDb.
N.B. This was the last Tom and Jerry cartoon produced and directed by Hanna Barbera. The next batch of T&J capers would be made on the cheap in Czechoslovakia by director Gene Deitch.
