| Elementary school anger
Growing up, Tom and Jerry would be on TV right when I got home from school and I loved it. I Looked forward to the zany humour.

Then this iteration started playing instead. And it was truly awful.

I don't know what that says about me, as I grew up to be a non-violent person, but the disappointment I felt when I came home and discovered this "friends" version was airing, caused urges inside of me that could almost be described as violent.

Throughout elementary school, Tom and Jerry would continue to play in the same time slot, rotating between the great pre-70's shorts, the not so great 80's version and the absolutely terrible 70's version.

Whether I was in grade 2 or grade 6, I found this 70's version unwatchable. So really young me and pre-teen me felt the same way about this dreck.

Without the violence, it relied on the lamest of plot situations. The same message over and over again - they had to work as friends to resolve a problem. And it was about as funny as Christian after school specials dealing with teenage pregnancy or parental alcoholism. I know because I would get exposed to them when I had to channel surf in the vain hope of finding something else to watch.

Half star for forcing me to go outside and play, and another half star for influencing the episode of the Simpsons when Marge tries to make Itchy and Scratchy cartoons non-violent.
