Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that, in keeping with the traditions of the legend, Tom and Jerry: Robin Hood and His Merry Mouse is a swashbuckler with lots of cartoon swordplay, bows and arrows, and general derring-do. That action plays alongside the cat-and-mouse pratfalls always featured in this long popular series, with Tom most often the victim. Characters are pummeled, pounded, fired at with arrows, flattened, and more. There are no long-lasting injuries, no deaths; nothing is to be taken seriously. The Sheriff is a mildly scary villain. Maid Marian, with her curves, fluttering eyelashes, and coy behavior is leered at by an assortment of males.
Maid Marian is drawn with voluptuous curves and has a sexy walk. Men ogle her and she plays the flirt until her true heroism is revealed. She and Robin share a kiss. A series of supposedly embarrassing photos of the evil Prince John are shown (on a swing, on a bearskin rug, always clothed), but it's not clear how they are compromising.
The usual zany cartoon action. Tom and/or Jerry, as well as other players, are subject to: spectacular falls through the air, crashes into walls/trees, multiple swordfights, wild roller-coaster type rides, explosions, and fires. They are smashed, catapulted, shot by arrows, captured and thrown into a dungeon, kick-bounced, and threatened. The Sheriff of Nottingham (in this case, "Nothingham") is a mildly scary scoundrel with piercing black eyes and an evil grin.
The values of teamwork and courage are stressed; Tom and Jerry abandon their usual rivalry in order to fight together for a higher purpose. Validates the legendary goal of the famous renegade from Sherwood Forest: "to take from the rich and give to the poor."
