YMMV: Tom and Jerry: The Movie
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The musical scene with the cat gang.
  • Canon Sue: Robyn.
  • Cliché Storm: The whole movie.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Dana Hill as Jerry.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: When Robyn's father rescues her from the top of the burning house via helicopter. And accidentally leaves Tom and Jerry behind to burn, though that isn't the awesome part.
  • Ear Worm: A couple of the songs definitely stay with you, for better or for worse.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Lickboot and Dr. Applecheeks due to their memetic nature (the former being voiced by Tony freaking Jay probably helps to).
  • Ham and Cheese: Tony Jay as Lickboot ("We've got to have...MONEY.")
  • Memetic Molester: Dr. Applecheeks, because of a scene where he creepily stalks... an ice cream cart.
    • Captain Kiddie bares an even more unsettling resemblance to a stereotypical child molester, though he's not quite as memetic.
  • Memetic Mutation:
  • Nightmare Fuel: The aforementioned "Dr. Applecheeks closing in on the ice cream cart" moment. Brrr. His character in general counts, actually; portrays himself as a kindly vet who loves animals and allows people to drop off lost pets for him to take care of. But then he shows his true colors, as a greedy con man who makes money off of pets that he kidnaps and sells back to their distraught owners. All the while, he abuses the poor little creatures and treats them less like living things and more like money-making commodities.
  • Older Than They Think: This isn't the first time that Tom and Jerry are changed from mortal enemies to best friends. The Tom And Jerry Show had the duo as friends and aired 17 years before the movie hit theaters.
    • Tom and Jerry also talked and sang occasionally in the original shorts.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Barring Robyn's father, literally every adult character in the movie, even the ones who seem nice at first, turns out to be a villain.
  • The Scrappy: All of the new characters created for this movie; Pugsy, Frankie, Aunt Figg, Lickboot, Captain Kiddie, Squawk, Dr. Applecheeks... and especially Robyn Starling, the girl that Tom and Jerry help to find her lost father, and the one responsible for making Tom and Jerry stay Out of Focus and making the movie being about Tom & Jerry In Name Only. The few that aren't universally reviled (Lickboot, Applecheeks to name a few) are only liked because of YouTube Poop remixes and memes.
    • Pugsy deserves a special mention, as he is the one who got Tom and Jerry to talk and sing about how they are best friends, despite Tom and Jerry being, you know, mortal enemies.
  • Squick: Aunt Figg and Mr. Lickboot look like they're about to kiss at the end of their Villain Song.
