Reflections of Christmas Eve

There’s some impressive work in the Tom and Jerry cartoon “The Night Before Christmas,” which takes Harman-Ising style personality animation and puts it into personalities you actually want to watch.

Here’s a cute little scene with great expressions; it has nothing to do with the plot (there isn’t much of one to begin with). Jerry sees a reflection in a Christmas ornament. You can see the various emotions play out. He screws around at the end before moving on to the next part of his journey around the house.

No animators are credited. Someone should get a lump of coal in their stocking for that. But Santa Kausler tells you who did this scene in the comments.

  1. Hi Yowp,
    This is one of Jack Zander's scenes, George Gordon, Pete Burness, Irv Spence, Cecil Surry and Bill Littlejohn all did animation.
