In Tom and Jerry’s Giant Adventure, nine-year-old Jack and his mom Violet have fallen on hard times when their fairytale-themed amusement park, Storybook Town, falls into disrepair and thus fails to attract the patrons it once drew. Unless they come up with a mortgage payment, the park will be torn down and replaced by a strip mall.
Forever optimistic, Violet and Jack refuse to give in and live by the adage “dreams come true if you believe.” To come up with part of the mortgage, Jack sells their beloved cow, Hermione. Tom and Jerry, who are all that’s left of Storybook Town’s petting zoo, accompany young Jack, who trades Hermione to a mysterious stranger named Farmer O’Dell in exchange for magic beans.
Jack’s mom is upset Hermione was traded for beans. Tom and Jerry, however, know there is something uniquely distinctive about these beans and bury them in the soil. As night falls on Storybook Town, Tom, Jerry and Jack fall asleep but are soon awakened by the magic beans, which have formed a giant beanstalk that shoots up like a rocket above the clouds and carries the trio to Fairyland – a magical place, high in the sky.
In Fairyland, Tom, Jerry and Jack meet several characters from legendary children’s stories and nursery rhymes. They also meet Ginormous, a greedy, tyrannical giant with a keen sense of smell, who terrorizes everyone in Fairyland. Jack realizes he’s living the role of “Jack” in Jack and the Beanstalk and learns it’s his destiny to fight Ginormous and free the citizens of Fairyland. Tom and Jerry join in, in what turns out to be an unforgettable epic adventure that promises to leave viewers sitting at the edge of their seats!

I received a copy of Tom and Jerry’s Giant Adventure and it was in true Tom and Jerry form. My kids were laughing hysterically through the entire movie. And thanks to my sponsor they had some great color sheets (featured above, just click to enlarge and print) to color after they were done watching. I have to say this was one of my favorites growing up, there was just always something about the relationship between Tom and Jerry that always kept me entertained.
