Tom & Jerry-Pecos Pest 1955

as i mentioned before Tom & Jerry was/is still one of my favorite cartoons. Even the strange GENE DEITCH episodes, which i am terribly fond of. 

Anywhosels, this morning i was rocking the Casino soundtrack and Les Paul & Mary Ford’s “How High the Moon” came on. This was obvioulsy a sign for me to post this episode of T&J for Cartoonsday, in which they give a nod to that song at the 4:55 mark. Go on, Uncle Pecos. Rock on, Les.
