Tom and Jerry

Love Film have finally delivered what I wanted, the early classic Fred Quimby Tom and Jerry collection. After chuckling away happily I realized something, something substantial perhaps, but I'm not going to get all Zizek about it.
Actually Tom likes to snooze under a tree, the dog likes to snooze in his hut, and Jerry likes to lounge in his hole reading a good book picking off bits of cheese from the mousetrap in utter contentment, and it is always the way with these cartoons, that the intrusion of others, usually unfortunate relatives of Jerry, cause havoc with the peace of all three. Global politics in popular media- you've got it right there.
