The Midnight Snack is the second Tom and Jerry cartoon and an evident improvement over ‘Puss Gets the Boot’. The dynamic here is much more fun and the highlight is the opening and all its parts where Tom eats from the refrigerator while Jerry is trapped. That whole part is phenomenal. And the ending is superb and a lot of fun. I like the score here as it so perfectly accompanies the action on screen, albeit a bit too emphasized. And the scene with Mammy hiking up numerous layers of her clothes upon seeing the mouse is just hilarious. The middle parts are not as good as beginning and end parts, but this is still a wonderful short filled with many fun gags, excellent score and a couple of truly memorable and funny scenes.
My Rating – 4.
