I remember being interested in the direct-to-DVD films, back when they sounded genuinely interesting. I still have fond memories of the penguin scene in The Fast And The Furryous.

What really gets me about all of these Tom and Jerry/Fairy Tale film crossovers is that so many of these films can actually work as hand-drawn animated films on their own. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was practically made for that approach, so for them to need Tom and Jerry as an excuse to actually do it pains me.

The book is actually very cartoony. In the book, the scene where Grampa Joe sees the golden ticket is very cartoony. He’s been completely bedridden for decades, tot so much as a toe twitch, but as soon as he sees the golden ticket he SHOOTS out of bed and stats yelling “yippee” like an old prospector. the Wilder version had neither the time nor the budget not even the knowledge that it was even theoretically possible to train a bunch of squirrels, so they used giant geese. In the same universe as Tom and Jerry, those squirrels could’ve displayed actual… Read more »

Why does this exist, well because somebody wants to keep making these cash grab films and put tom and Jerry in them.. I wish they would stop butunfortunaely they probably won’t

Because they want to appeal to audiences in Japan as much as possible due to how stupidly popular Tom and Jerry are over there

Welshguy
Guest

That’s not true, Japan hardly know these direct to DVD movies exist as they’re not even sold there.

ILuvGundam2001
Guest

Your statement is false because all of the direct-to-DVD Tom and Jerry movies so far have been dubbed into Japanese and they sell them in Japan. Haven’t you read my other comment about Japan’s obsession with Tom and Jerry?

I really like the idea of doing these smaller reviews for editorial-week like “Cats Don’t Dance” or “Tom and Jerry and Willy Wonka”. The editorials are fine, but I really enjoy stuff like WTR and things like these two mini reviews more. Keep up the good work!

I didn’t really think this was review worthy because it’s the same movie it’s just Tom and Jerry edited into it. After seeing this, i still think it is.

There are more problems than just this.

Just because Droopy is playing a Mexican doesn’t mean it is a stereotype, per se.

JeffCyr
Guest

To be fair, out of a Tom and Jerry movie this is pretty much what I’d want, just those two having some slap stick none-sense in the background of some other overarching plot.

JachAnen
Guest

Personally I’d rather have their slap stick nonsense in a show of its own, just like it was once.

Im so glad to see classic Nostalgia critic episodes again. I was always waiting for Malcolm and Tamara to interrupt with a skit with silly costumes an i was so happy when it didn’t arrive.

This is an editorial week.

…Despite how this is edited like his usual reviews. Yeah, usually, editorials don’t have ad breaks. This is really something.

Tom and Jerry and Charley and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Gene Wilder, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera are all turning in their graves!

Terrible way to find out Gene Wilder died

webgamer5653

You’re forgetting Mel Stuart, the film’s director!

zenfrodo

You’re all forgetting Roald Dahl, the author of the freakin’ original book. If he were still alive, he’d be jumping in a grave just to turn in it.

Then again, Dahl also despised the 1971 film of “Chocolate Factory”. He completely disowned it and because of it, refused any more adaptations of his work. He hated Gene Wilder’s portrayal (Dahl wanted Spike Milligan in the role) and was enraged over the plot changes, especially the ending.

The part of you going crazy over Tuffy Tunnel scene might have been the most entertaining thing I have seen since the Bat Credit Card.

Aviatorfox13

Please tell us that you filmed a first viewing of this cause I would love to see the reaction too that tuffy scene.

Critic, this is what? Four reviews in a row? We’re going to start expecting them every week soon!

Thanks for the hard work, these have been fantastic.

Did anyone else see the “Kilroy Was Here” graffiti in the Slugworth intro scene or was that just me?

Isolder74
Guest

It’s on the wall in the original movie. It is a strange detail to make sure they added. It does make me wonder how many people remember what it is?

TragicGuineaPig
Guest

It’s a reference to that one Styx album, isn’t it?

Someoneelse
Guest

If it was intentional which it almost definitely was’t the mousetrap in candy scene could have been a very clever Roald Dahl reference.

I had a feeling you’d review this direct-to-video, cash-in crossover sooner or later. I was stupid enough as a kid to see “Tom & Jerry: The Movie,” but I knew to avoid seeing this film ever since I first saw copies of it on sale at Target. I don’t mean to correct you, Critic, but the official title is “Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory,” not “Tom and Jerry AND Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.” The colon isn’t that hard to miss. I also agree that Droopy, and the even freakier version of the Tunnel of… Read more »

Even then, does seriously anyone care about the colon being missed?

This highlights two points I made with your editorial about remakes;
1. The Tim Burton movie is more of an alternate adaptation of the book rather than a remake of the musical film
2. If nothing else, the Beauty And The Beast live-action remake has a a different visual style beyond just a different medium

Moon Spirit

Not gonna lie. That tunnel scene really is the highlight. What’s scarier than a mad candy businessman saying that poem? How ’bout a mouse with a high pitch voice while screaming incessantly in your face? I literally scream whenever that little Oompa Loompa does it too.

Blue Griffin

So glad you did this. I really wanted honest trailers to review this (although it wouldn’t be too much different than the wonka trailer), but you did a fantastic job.

Jiro

Well, there goes my sanity.

I’m cringing by just watching the editorial.
Poor Doug.

No intro today ?

This is an editorial week. He only uses the full intro for his main NC reviews.

ErichoTTA

Aww, I was hoping you’d hate this more than the Tom and Jerry movie. I mean, it has a lower score on the IMDb! Are you back to making a review every week? This was four reviews in a row! That’s awesome! At least that tunnel scene gave us what we wanted.

The Real Silverstar

“Aww, I was hoping you’d hate this more than the Tom and Jerry movie.” Why? Something like this isn’t worth raging out over. I can see why a T&J fan would have a mad-on for Tom & Jerry: The Movie; it was a big-budgeted theatrical release allegedly intended to celebrate the characters but did so by having them act completely out of character and reducing them to supporting players in their own story, which wasn’t even a good story even without Tom & Jerry. This is two great tastes that taste weird together, but ultimately it’s just a quickie DTV… Read more »

1:08 No Sherlock Holmes meets Tom & Jerry??
When I first heard of this, I said, “Hey Jerry, say hello to Basil for me.” HA HA HA HA

Isolder74

Thankfully Disney owns the rights to The Great Mouse Detective making such a crossover out of the question.

JachAnen
Guest

It’s not really out of the question, they could collaborate, as they kind of done before. Although I doubt they would ever re-use Basil Mouse.

Welshguy

A pointless movie that just screams “cash-grab”. Pity the poor children who had to watch it due to their cheapskate parents.

LiamA

No. The Candy Man is wakko.

I see what you did there. 😀

I don’t know what you guys are talking about. It looks absolutely hilarious.

A very Tiny Toons-esque retelling. They do this a lot. How they shoehorn in stuff is the funny part1 The fact it makes no sense is hilarious!

And I’m someone who can’t even watch the Room for giggles. This, though, looks so bad it’s intentionally funny.

Doug, that dog is into some pretty kinky stuff.

Well now you gotta do the wizard of oz one with Tamara as dorothy

The Real Silverstar
Guest

No he doesn’t.

The Real Silverstar
Guest

Yeah, I was expecting a vote-down for that, but think about it: these off-week mini-reviews are one thing, but really, does something like any of these “let’s plonk Tom & Jerry into some popular work of fiction for no reason” videos really warrant a full-blown review, with props, costumes and skit actors? I’m thinking no. (Unless dude only suggested that ’cause he wants to see Tamara dressed as Dorothy.)

NerdCritic

Alrighty! If they made an edited version with just Tom and Jerry in it, without the filler, this would be a great nightmare fuel movie for kids! Oh wait…A FAMILY PICTURE!
