In this retelling of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk tale, Tom and Jerry live with Jack and his mother in Storybook Town, a fairy tale-inspired theme park that has fallen on hard times. Desperate to keep the park out of the hands of a greedy billionaire, young Jack sets out with his loyal cat and mouse friends to sell his prize cow. Everything changes when a handful of magic beans creates a giant, sky-reaching beanstalk that leads Jack, Tom and Jerry on a wild adventure to find a goose that lays golden eggs. But what dangers and hijinks will ensue when the trio makes its way to the top of the beanstalk? The magical land is ruled by a massively mean, greedy and hungry giant and is also home to fun, fabled fellows like Droopy, Spike and even Screwy Squirrel. Tom and Jerry have to put an end to their furry feud long enough to save Storybook Town.

Less slapstick than usual in solid fairy tale crossover.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while Tom and Jerry's Giant Adventure has enough "rock 'em-sock 'em" cartoon action to meet Tom & Jerry fans' expectations, there's more story here and less frantic slapstick violence than usual. In fact, the usual parody and pratfalls give way to a sweet tale in which the cat and mouse help a worthy little boy and his single mom save their home, their town, and their dreams. This episode has several musical numbers, more dialogue than most Tom and Jerry entries, and relies on familiar Mother Goose characters, as well as usual T & J colleagues Spike and Droopy for its charm. The story, basically a retelling of "Jack and the Beanstalk," includes a giant who could be frightening to very young or sensitive kids. The giant threatens everyone in Storybook Town... he promises to grind them up and turn them into bread, but he's ultimately a buffoonish bully who is easily vanquished after the usual crash-and-burn pratfalls.
