Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Tom and Jerry: The Lost Dragon is an original short feature film in which the popular cat and mouse "frenemies" function as a team while helping their mistress Athena, a gentle young witch, save a baby dragon from the clutches of a utterly evil adult witch. Drizelda turns on her comic "seductive" charm by shaking her rear and bumping and grinding her way through a song. Extensive cartoon jeopardy and action includes fire-breathing dragons, dark magic, lightning strikes, crashes, falls, chases, and many characters being hit over the head, being knocked down and out, and catching fire. As is typical of this franchise, the movie is intended to provide comedy and mild scares to kids who are comfortable with cartoon peril as opposed to real danger. An activity book with games, stickers, and so on accompanies the DVD.
An avalanche of cartoon jeopardy, spills, and thrills. Drizelda, a witch, wields her dark magic in several scenes: lightning bolts, fire, unleashing a serpent, transforming herself into a dragon. Her cadre of assistants (half-cat, half-bat) chase and menace the heroes. An anxious, scary-looking mother dragon breathes fire toward anyone who threatens her baby. The two dragons fight. A wizard uses his mighty powers to defend against Drizelda. Characters catch fire and plummet long distances, and, in two instances, sympathetic dragons appear to be turned into stone. Typical Tom and Jerry antics lighten the cartoon action when they annoy one another by kicking, dropping worms, hitting, squashing, and setting tails afire.
As good triumphs over evil, teamwork takes center stage. The heroine is a nurturing advocate for all animals.
