Classic Cartoons - Tom and Jerry

For some reason just now (ok, about an hour ago), I had the sudden desire to look up old Tom and Jerry cartoons. I remember watching them on home-recorded VHS tapes.

Luckily for modern technology, someone has uploaded them on are a few of my favorites:

Rock 'n' Rodent (1967)

I remember thinking this was a weird cartoon, but I really liked it for some reason. Jerry goes down in a cute mouse-size elevator to a beatnik-y mouse jazz club. The mice are too loud, waking a sleeping Tom, and fighting ensues.

Neapolitan Mouse (1954)
Tom and Jerry head to Naples, Italy where they meet a mouse named Topo. Topo doesn't like it when bigger animals pick on smaller animals, so he at first teaches Tom a lesson, til they come across some bullying dogs and team up against them.

My favorite scene as a kid was the cheese rolling scene (near the end).

Superstocker (1980)
Tom is in charge of a grocery store - he and Jerry start fighting and end up trashing the store.

My favorite part is when Tom looks for Jerry in the cereal boxes (when cereals were touting their boxed prizes).

[Edit: Can't tell what language the last cartoon is in...odd].
