I was not sure where to post this, but Bill Palmer suggested this might be the place!

I wanted to share this TOM AND JERRY cartoon, called ABRACADUMB I wrote for Warner Bros., just a few years ago. Like many of you, I have a true passion & obsession with the Cups & Balls, (performed countless C & B focused shows at George W. Page Park in L.A.)

So when Warner Bros. accepted my story concept of a T & J with a battling/competing Magi theme, I naturally had to put some Cups and Balls gags in between Cat and Mouse. I thought to myself, "Think of the possibilities. Tom and Jerry. Cups and Balls. Wow!!" I wrote the story & script for this cartoon. Hope you enjoy it.

Note: Technically WB owns the (copyright on my toon,) but I wrote this story & script, and if I can't share the one magic-themed Tom and Jerry Cartoon I managed to write - with fellow magicians HERE - then tis little justice in the world!

Note whoever posted this on YouTube put up a Spanish dubbed version

Animatedly,

p.s. The focus on the Cups and Balls at WMS was an undiluted slice of Heavenly bliss!

Thanks for sharing that. Tom had some nice final loads! I wonder how he managed that.

This cartoon is really a treat! Even more of a treat is the fact that the guy who wrote the story and script was able to share it with us.

Thanks, Charles!

Thank you kindly, Mr. Palmer. I feel like my lifetime was building, over 49 years, to the moment when I posted this particular cartoon here this AM, to share with MAGICIANS everywhere - (the work melded two of my great loves, Magic & Animation) The animators also put a lil' extra love into their craft on several I penned, which was fortunate.

Thanks once more &, for the curious, here is a .....

Charles sent this to me the other day and I got a the biggest kick out of it! A) I'm a T&J fan B) Only a true C&B guy would show a watermelon as a final load and only a magician would get the significance! Good stuff buddy!

This is worth getting in the Cups and Balls Museum if you can obtain and grant free rights for Bill Palmer's museum to shoot it there...

Not about the C&Bs but magician friendly is this one as well

My father's favorite was the T&J of Hungarian Dance #5. He was a musician, and he really enjoyed that particular one.

I loved Tom and Jerry as a child and I had the joy of watching this just now with my three year old daughter who also loves Tom and Jerry. She prefer Tom and Jerry over anythig else and we have three Tom and Jerry DVDs. While I am sure it is nice to hear from adults who like this, I just wanted to let you know that my three year old squealed and laughed throughout the cartoon, which just made it all the more enjoyable. My child loved it as well.
