DVD review: Tom & Jerry- In the Dog House

I think that the sound of my kids' laughter is pretty much one of the best sounds in the world. My son, Ethan, has a particularly enjoyable and infectious laugh. I always smile when I hear it.  So I was doing an awful lot of smiling the other day as he watched Tom & Jerry: In the Dog House, because Ethan thought it was absolutely hysterical! Here's a bit about this new DVD, from a press release that I received:

Tom, Jerry and Spike the Dog go paw to paw in Warner Home Video’s (WHV) hilarious new DVD compilation Tom & Jerry: In the Dog House, available in stores March 6, 2012. It’s canine, feline and rodent madness at its finest with 22 rip-roaring cartoons that are sure to entertain both kids and adults alike. Tom & Jerry: In the Dog House will retail for $19.97 SRP.

Join the favorite cat and mouse duo along with their co-star Spike the Dog in Tom & Jerry: In the Dog House, a collection of shorts comprised of some of the funniest episodes from Tom and Jerry Tales, Tom and Jerry Greatest Chases and classic, theatrical Tom and Jerry shorts. Each cartoon is filled with fur-flying, action-packed chases, schemes and pranks that will delight kids and their parents time and again.

Included is the award winning short Quiet Please! in which Spike warns Tom not to make a sound while he naps. Other classic shorts included are Tom’s Photo Finish, in which Tom frames the family dog in order to avoid getting into trouble. In another featured classic, Cat Napping, Tom tries to fish at a private lake guarded by Spike. Also featured is Solid Serenade, in which Tom tries to serenade Toodles, a beautiful lady feline but not before he finds an ingenious way to get past Spike the dog. These and several other rollicking favorites are featured in this set.
I was honestly worried that Ethan was going to fall off the couch a couple of times, because he was laughing so incredibly hard! I had to take a picture:
 He was new to Tom & Jerry before we watched this DVD, but now he's a huge fan. The episodes on this DVD are really a lot of fun, and I know your cartoon fans will like them as much as we did.  The DVD comes in at 162 minutes, so there's lots of entertainment on it! Tom & Jerry: In the Dog House will be available this week, on March 6th.

Disclosure: I received this DVD to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
