Tom and Jerry have fed our collective sadomasochistic desired for generations.
All of us have at one point wanted to drop an anvil on someones head, or squish them through a spoogetti roller. Whatever the voices in your head tell you to do most of it can be seen on Tom and Jerry.
Tom and Jerry is a series of theatrical animated cartoon films created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, centering on a never-ending rivalry between a cat (Tom) and a mouse (Jerry) whose chases and battles often involved comic violence (despite this they sometimes become allies to defeat a ‘greater enemy’ such as Spike the dog).
It’s an old show that has gone on for a long time, and continued to make us smile for years. The plots are when Tom ( a cat) chases Jerry ( a mouse). The plot isn’t repetative and never gets old. This show has an enormity of clever ideas for Jerry to beat up Tom and always win. I give it 1,000, out of 10!
Although the new series seems stale and played out I wish they never ended the original series. I have to admit I cried when it ended. I grew up with the show. Even my parents remember growing up with it. It was the rare type of funny violence that somehow kids knew not to do. Over or not, they will always have a place in my heart.
1. Arrested Development
In this great and original comedy “sitcom” Michael Bluth must hold his family together after his father is imprisoned. Although his dysfunctional family make his job unbearable. Some great actors in this one, including names like Michel Cera, Jeffrey Tambor, and the always funny David Cross.
2. It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia
In this ridiculous and unorthodox T.V. show a lovable group Philadelphian bar owners face the struggles of society, and come out without a scratch time after time. Although the majority of the characters are sociopaths and of below average intelligence perhaps this is why they can be found so relatable.
(couldn’t find a good Wilfred clip, hopefully this will suffice)
The show follows the antics of a manic depressive man, played by Elijah Wood who mysteriously is the only person whos able to see his neighbor’s dog (Jason Gann) as a lazy, pot smoking, and perverted man in a dog suit. The show is full of great humor, and some spectacular acting.
This is probably my favorite one on the list this single-camera comedy focuses on three friends who work together as telemarketers and live together as well. This trio of fantastically insane and lovable dudes go on massive adventures, go to kickass parties, and have copious amounts of fun.
Part 2 Tomorrow!

Mel Brooks is the absolute king of parody film. His work is know around the world, and has been the set example for all funny films in the modern world. He has made probably most of my favorite films, and some of the best movies ever. Here are some of my reviews of his films, and other stuff.
The Twelve Chairs is me and my families favorite comedy. As a Russian I love alot of this humor, and a bit is overlooked by people without a sharp mind. But I think everyone should watch it.
In 1920s Soviet Russia a fallen aristocrat Vorobyaninov and the town priest find that Vorobyaninovs mother had just before their palace was invaded during the revolution she had hidden an enormous amount of jewels in their families dining room chairs. Soon enough Vorobyaninov is on the hunt for the chairs. He eventually picks up a con artist and together they search for a treasure of jewels hidden inside one of twelve dining chairs, lost during the revolution.
Young Frankenstein is one of the funniest movies in black and white, with sound. Anyone that has seen it probably knows that this film is a bevy of quotes, and easily repeatable jokes. Although this film is old the humor is funny to all people, and I think everyone should see this just because you will know what true funny is. To anyone who’s seen this film check out these bloopers.
Blazing Saddles is on the same par as Young Frankenstein. Mel Brooks directed the amazing film, centered around modern issues such as corruption, racism and fart Jokes. Check it out.
