Volume 1 is equally good, while vol. 3 is great, but starts to trail off at the end due to poorer quality cartoons as production costs start getting cut. Volume 4 is absolutely horrible, dating from a time where production costs appear to have hit rock bottom, so don't even bother with vol. 5.
Get this without fear and re-live your childhood through some of the most imaginitive cartoon slapstick you'll ever find!
This collection also contains the memorable 'The Cat Concerto', which won an Oscar and few T&J fans could fail to remember the battle between Tom and Jerry as the latter intervened while the former was trying so hard to play Liszt's 'Hungarian Rhapsody' on the grand piano on a concert stage. This is a classic masterpiece!
That having been said, though, the other cartoons are also full of energy and still generate a laugh.
There are two things I have so far noticed that mar this collection. 'Solid Serenade' has a sound glitch near the end that is very noticeable and is a bit off-putting. The other is that, like the previous collection, some political correctness has affected some of the cartoons. In some of the cartoons, once again the black maid Mammy Two Shoes has had her voice redubbed to make her sound like a white woman (but in other cartoons, such as 'A Mouse In The House', the dear original maid's voice and drawl is present throughout!), and some bits that supposedly poke fun at black people have been cut: a black-face gag is cut from 'A Mouse In The House' and 'The Truce Hurts', 'Tennis Chumps' has a different take on one with a different pose, and -- possibly the most affected -- 'The Little Orphan' is heavily cut to remove the aftermath of what happens in a scene involving Tom and a candle, and again the continuity is affected so the scene no longer makes sense.
So, all in all, a great collection, once again kept from the 5/5 scoring by some cuts.
Of the six volumes of Tom & Jerry I found this to be the one with the funniest cartoons- though those on Volumes 1 and 3 are almost as good. Some of the classics on here include "The Cat Concerto" (one of the all-time classic cartoons based on a piece of orchestral music), and "Heavenly Puss" is another of my long-standing favourites. Plenty of slapstic humour on offer, and good entertainment for those of all ages.
As with Volumes 1 and 3, some of the cartoons have been edited for implied racism, which detracts from them a bit, and in some cases affects the continuity ("The Little Orphan" being the worst example). However, most of these edits are only minor.
As with the other DVDs in this collection, it's double sided which can be a pain, but there is very little in the way of legal stuff (and no piracy trailers) before you get into the list of cartoons to view.
5/5 for the cartoons, 1/5 docked for the PC cuts- but this is still classic entertainment at its very best.
