Subject: Tom & Jerry/Grape Ape Show To Air On Cartoon Network's Sampling Of Boomerang

Cartoon Network is planning to air The (New) Tom & Jerry/Grape Ape Show on their weekly sampling of Boomerang Saturday, October 26, at 6 AM Eastern/5 AM Central Time.

Now, the last time they ran it (on June 30), they played 2 Grape Ape cartoons, 2 classic Tom & Jerry cartoons, and one T&J 'toon from '75 ("An Ill Wind")! (Did I forget to mention they neglected to show any Mumbly cartoons?) Now, their inadvertent showing of those 2 classic T&J 'toons in the wrong era (it was 1977, y'all!) threw viewers (like me!) completely off track. It seems to me that Cartoon Network feels that the 1970s version of Tom & Jerry is as much anathema to show as diehard classic T&J fans feel it is watch---is it any wonder that its release on VHS or DVD is long overdue?!

Let's hope that CN stays focused on the motivation and shows the full stretch of '70s T&J 'toons this time...and, better yet, hope they haven't been taught to hate 'em! If not, I'm gonna sing 'em a heated aria they'll never 4get!
