Tom And Jerry Classics Race Their Way Onto Blu-ray
Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry centers on the never-ending rivalry between Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse. The plots of each short usually center on Tom’s attempts to capture Jerry. Jerry however, is clever and quick on his feet so Tom hardly ever manages to catch him. The original series is notable for
having won the Academy Award® for Best Short Subject: Cartoon seven times.
