Here's the back cover:

Is it me, or does Tom just looks like himself on the front and cover (not drawn in a Chuck Jones style)?

I've been looking forward for a set with these cartoons. In my opinion, anything by Chuck Jones is worth the money and time, even if it perhaps isn't the peak of his career. Will definitly pre-order this.

I actually MUCH prefer these to the godawful Deitch cartoons, only ONE of which I'd EVER buy in a set (and that one would be The Tom & Jerry Cartoon Kit).

TOTALLY looking to pick these up.

Though I love Chuck Jones's work, I have to admit his T&Js weren't as good as the classic ones by MGM/H-B. Sure, they're a tad better than some of the good Gene Deitch T&J shorts, but still not as great.

The question is, how will Warner Home Video try to release the Gene Deitch T&J cartoons on video? Because for all I know, I'm sure many people would say the following line after seeing a Gene Deitch T&J short...

"WHAT THE H**L WAS THAT?!"
:D

FWIW, "The Tom and Jerry Cartoon Kit" (indeed alone among the Deitch T&Js, up to now) is available on this earlier single DVD. :tomcat::jerry:

If that DVD has Gene Deitch, why can't there be a collection of 'em all?

I doubt a collection with all of Deitch's Tom and Jerry shorts would sell very well and I'm not sure if even Warner Home Entertainment would risk that gamble.

However, I have the feeling the whole series might be avaliable some time soon at the Warner Archive site.
