Was Chuck Jones better for Tom & Jerry than Fred Quimby?

Asked by: rajun
  • Quimby was the best

    Quimby cartoons were legendary. He had maybe the funniest cartoons ever. Just watch Tom and Jerry on TV. When quimby cartoons come on, the animation, the sound, the creativity were priceless. When chuck Jones cartoons come on, it make u not want to watch them because u just watch a quimby one. Chuck Jones was great for looney toons, but not for Tom and Jerry.

  • Chuck Jones was best

    Though not as funny, the animations are so much better. The drawings are higher quality and the result always ends up neutral at the end. My mom always said they were less violent but just as funny. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • Quimby was awesome

    I really think Quimby was the best. I say this because the drawing and the animation of Tom n Jerry were way better. And because they were way more funny and had better recurring characters. I agree with the person above saying that Jones' cartoons are some what similar to pink panther...

  • Both are excellent, but...

    ...When it comes to Tom & Jerry, Fred Quimby was the best.

    Not to take away anything from Chuck Jones, who had his own spin on Tom & Jerry, with the more opera-themed episodes and tapping the pop culture vein in shorts like The Mouse from H.U.N.G.E.R. And O-Solar Meow.

    Fred Quimby's shorts were unquestionably en-pointe editorially, preferring to tell a story rather than using pop culture as a framing device for slapstick gags (excepting the Mouse-keteer shorts, mainly because, again, the focus was on telling a story).

    Another strength Quimby had in his T&J shorts was his cast of recurring characters, which Chuck never employed in his T&J's.

    They are both legendary animators, but as far as Tom & Jerry goes, no one can hold a candle to Fred Quimby, not even Chuck Jones.

  • Absolutely not- Fred Quimby for me.

    As far as Tom and Jerry goes, Fred Quimby was king. The cartoons were funnier, the characters were cuter, and the outcomes so much more one-sided.
    Chuck jones' Tom and Jerry was so unfunny, i don't even watch them anymore. I personally, cannot think of one Chuck Jones episode funnier than Quimby's.

  • Chuck's T and J shorts SUCK.

    I loved his Loony Tunes shorts. They were really good. But his Tom and Jerry shorts were really bad. For one, he was not a fan of Tom and Jerry to begin with. For two, The slapstick was poor. For three, his characters look TERRIBLE. Tom looks like Boris Karloff and Jerry's eyes are too small. Fred's shorts had better animation, better jokes, and better designs. Chuck was missing 3 characters. (Spike, Tuffy, and Butch) So, Fred is the winner.

  • Quimby was class

    Quimby cartoons had a warm, comfortable feel to them. There were no silly sound effects. The animation was smooth and the story lines were not daft. The music was class too, probably my first introduction to jazz. The absence of complete people (never more than legs!) Kept the illusion going. If I had to live in a cartoon it would be a Fred quimby tom & jerry one.

  • Quimby had ZERO input to the Tom and Jerry series.

    He was a producer in title only! The entire series was created by two animators that worked for Quimby ( Hannah and Barbera). Hannah and Barbera have always said Quimby had No sense of humor nor animation creativity for cartoons. For every award Quimby received for Tom and Jerry he Never acknowledged them and took all the credit.

    No! It was just something special and original about Frederick Clinton Quimby's version. I don't if it was the artistry, the plots and story line, the era or what, Quimby's version just has it all over Chuck Jones. I am a cartoon conisuer, as a child I clearly remember rushing home from school to watch Tom and Jerry as well as the rest of the evening line up. When I became an adult/mother I couldn't wait to start collecting them on VHS/DVD for my children & they'll ask me if want to watch T&J w/them of course you what my response is, they'll put it in & I'll say what is that, what are you doing, now you which ones I want to see; the old/original ones. I had to trane them; now it's second nature; now they know! (BIG SMILE). I have to be in a certain mood for C.J.'s version.
