* FollowTheLeader: The pathos filled orphan plot? The musical numbers? The hammy bad guys (one of whom is voiced by Creator/TonyJay)? Its very obvious that the film was a shameless attempt at cashing in on Creator/{{Disney}}'s renaissance during the early 90's, with Tom and Jerry thrown in for marquee value. Suffice to say, it didn't work.

* JerkassHasAPoint: Shortly after meeting Robyn, Tom tries to explain to her how stupid it is from running away from her aunt, just because she vocally abuses her. That's a horrible thing for sure, but her aunt apparently does take care of her (albeit reluctantly), and she's going to reunite with her father anyway, running away just puts her in danger. Tom gets ignored of course.

** We never see what happened to Aunt Figg or Lickboot after they escaped from the cabin, but we can only assume Robyn told her father everything and they were arrested.

This is basically true for all the villains (save the bulldog at the beginning, who just runs off, and the singing cat gang, who fall down a manhole). Captain Kiddie and Squawk are left hanging on a bridge, Applecheeks in the Ice Cream Stand floating on the river, and the Straycatchers stuck at the top of a Ferris Wheel. Presumably they were also arrested.

Unfortunately, because all of this was completely unrelated to Tom & Jerry or their legacy, [[BoxOfficeBomb the film bombed]] and was critically panned, and the DirectToVideo ''Tom and Jerry'' films made since have, to their credit, tried to stay closer to the original formula. It is worth noting that [[Creator/HannaBarbera Joseph Barbera]] worked on this movie and allowed all of this to occur. Then again, he was also involved in [[WesternAnimation/TheTomAndJerryShow their 1970's incarnation]], which was equally watered-down. Suffice it to say, Tom and Jerry: The Movie is the only work in the franchise of its kind.

->''Holy crap, they ''talked!'' They actually talked! The apocalypse has finally begun, [[CueTheFlyingPigs pigs are learning how to fly]], Satan is skating his way to work, and I'm pretty sure I just became a monkey's uncle.''

* FiveBadBand: You can kind of see the bad guys in the film as this.
** BigBad - Aunt Figg
** TheDragon - Lickboot
** TheEvilGenius - Dr. Applecheeks
** {{The Brute}}s - Abner and Lummox.
** TheDarkChick - Captain Kiddie
** TeamPet - Ferdinand, and to a lesser extent, Squawk.
** Also, the singing cat gang.
** And the bulldog who chases Tom in the beginning of the film

** Second, Tom and Jerry [[SuddenlyVoiced talk]] considerably more than they did in the original shorts., something that only sporadically happened in the original shorts. And the voices in question don't seem to fit the characters at all.
