As a kid I absolutely loved loved loved Tom & Jerry. I loved the early Hanna Barbera and Chuck Jones vintages the most. The arms race that takes place in Guided Mouse-ille is classic T&J, and oddly pre-disposed me to understand learning about history in the 50s and 60s with the real-world counterparts of the nuclear arms race. So, yeah cartoons can be educational! As a kid, though, I could not for the life of me understand the ending. I’m sad to say, it makes all too much sense to me now.
