Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale Special Edition #HolidayGiftGuide

 Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own.

After watching the season’s final performance of “The Nutcracker” ballet on Christmas Eve, Jerry dreams of dancing with the beautiful prima ballerina, who captivates him with her graceful performance. After the theater patrons leave, Jerry climbs onto the stage and begins to dance on his own, as Tuffy Mouse cheers him on. Through the magic of Christmas Eve, Jerry is suddenly transformed into one of the dancers. Costumed to look like regal prince, he takes center stage, which turns into a winter wonderland, as all the toy props around him come to life, and music from Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” begins to play. A petite music box ballerina springs to life and joins Jerry as the two of them dance their way into the Nutcracker’s magical realm. It seems as though Jerry’s “The Nutcracker” fantasy has finally become a reality. That’s until Tom and his band of alley cats enter through the theater’s stage door, capture all the toys and lock the beautiful ballerina in a cage.

In the last month or so, my family and I have had the chance to go back in time and watch some of our favorite childhood classic cartoon characters from when my husband and I were kids. It's been great introducing all of these hilarious characters we watched as kids with our own kids and Tom and Jerry are no different.

We were sent Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale on blu-ray and it was our first Christmas movie we watched this holiday season. Not only did the special edition come with A Nutcracker Tale, but it also came with a couple bonus episodes, Tom and Jerry: The Night Before Christmas and Tom and Jerry: Santa's Little Helper. I was surprised that all of my kiddos, even the teens, enjoyed this movie and asked to watch the bonus episodes that were included. 

With everything going on in the world right now, it was nice to sit down and turn off our smartphones and enter Tom and Jerry's world for just a little bit. We laughed and got swept away in their love-hate relationship. I loved that my kids got to watch even more characters from our childhood and that they enjoyed themselves. A Nutcracker Tale will now be part of our family holiday movies we watch as everyone enjoyed this movie from beginning to end. 

A great movie to introduce your kids or grandkids to this holiday season, Tom and Jerry: A Nutcracker Tale Special Edition is available to own on Digital for $14.99 (US and Canada) and also available on Blu-ray for  $19.98 in the US and $24.98 in Canada.
