Common Sense Note

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.

Sexual Content

The good fairy wears a skimpy outfit; she kisses the heroes to thank them for their bravery.


The usual cartoon antics, but not as many of them as in most Tom & Jerry episodes. The heroes' primary antagonist is a fearsome, mean giant who often threatens to grind up their bones and make bread out of them. Throughout the film, characters topple through the air, hang precariously from high places, are flattened, stretched, burned, squished, and frightened. They are chased, captured, hit over the head with boards, and run over by any number of vehicles and objects.



Social Behavior

Story's slogan is: "Dreams come true if you believe." The tale encourages belief in oneself, teamwork to accomplish a goal, and shows that goodness wins over evil. Evil is depicted as a strip mall developer.
