Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry emerged during Hollywood’s golden age of animation and became one of the most popular cartoon series in existence. The shorts focus 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.
“We are delighted with the wonderful assortment of cartoons found in this entertaining new collection and we think consumers will be too,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. She added, “It was important for us to select a combination of shorts we thought would appeal to both kids and adults. Tom and Jerry are enduring characters whose body of work spans decades. Their repertoire features cartoons that appeal to just about every taste. From the heart-melting and adorable to the most rambunctious and hilarious, Tom and Jerry have it all.”
