80-07 "Mammoth Manhunt"
80-08 "The Wacky World Of Sports"
The constant variety of sport. The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. The human (animal?) drama of athletic competition. This is "The Wacky World Of Sports!" As finalists, Tom and Jerry compete against each other for the gold medal in The Decathlon, a series of nine track and field events: tennis, the pole-vault, kung-fu, the 100-yd. dash, the 200-meter freestyle race (swimming), weightlifting, the broad jump, golf, and the discus throw. Using sneaky tricks and underhanded pranks, Tom fouls up all of Jerry's efforts, but manages to ruin his own attempts as well. In the long jump, he attaches a huge spring to the bottom of his shoes, but the trick backfires when the powerful coil bounces him right out of the stadium. He attaches a jet engine to a discus in order to throw it the farthest, but he neglects to put a guidance device on it. The discus returns like a boomerang, chasing Tom around the stadium and leaving the championship unresolved.
Trivia & Notes:
80-10 "Robin Ho Ho"
As Robin Ho Ho teaches his merry men to laugh, Littlejohn arrives to report "interlopers": Tom and Jerry, who want to join up and become merry men (merry cat and merry mouse??). First, Rob sees how they do laughing; T&J fall all over themselves guffawing and are initiated into The Merry Men Training Academy. They succeed in accomplishing two further tests: shooting bull's-eyes with a longbow and capturing a fire-breathing dragon, but they find that the third and last task, going to The Sheriff Of Nottingham's castle and retrieving a red plume from The Sheriff's helmet, proves to be the most challenging of them all, as they are hindered every step of the way by a loudmouth crow and The Sheriff's two wolfhounds! Tom & Jerry nevertheless tackle the odds and succeed in their mission. The skeptical Robin Ho Ho asks T&J to prove that the plume is really from The Sheriff Of Nottingham, and he is immediately set upon by The Sheriff's wolfhounds!
