BURBANK, CA -- Everyone’s favorite animated cat and mouse are back in Tom and Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures, a new DVD collection from Warner Home Video (WHV) that features 14 rip-roaring cartoon shorts that will entertain both kids and adults. Available in stores February 8, 2011, this DVD release will retail for $14.97 SRP.
Let the comedic mayhem begin! The tussling twosome consisting of Tom, the perturbed cat and Jerry, the mischievous mouse are at it again on Tom and Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures. The DVD includes fourteen hilarious and wacky cartoons, many of which were directed by legendary duo, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Kids and adults can join Tom, Jerry and many of their favorite pals, including Quacker the adorable duckling, Tuffy the mouse, Spike the Bulldog and his son, Tyke and others in this must-own collection.
In Tom and Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures, our favorite dueling duo travels through time in Guided Mouse-ille, to Europe in Neapolitan Mouse and into outer space on O-Solar-Meow. It’s two against one when Tom’s scaredy-cat cousin George comes to town in Timid Tabby. Jerry comes up on top time and again in Pet Peeve, That’s My Mommy and Robin Hoodwinked. Other featured shorts include Barbecue Brawl, Happy go Ducky, Hic-cup Pup, Little Quacker, Rock ‘N’ Rodent, Pup on a Picnic and The Vanishing Duck.
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.
“Tom and Jerry are two enduring cartoon legends whose escapades always remain timeless and fresh. Generations of audiences have been captivated by their never-ending pursuit,” commented Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Partner Brands Marketing. He added, “Tom and Jerry: Fur Flying Adventures kicks off a new series of Tom and Jerry collections which are comprised of beloved, classic cartoons that we hand-picked because they appeal to a wide audience.”
