A fresh take on the classic story, Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood and his Merry Mouse is an action-packed family film filled with laugh-out-loud moments and fur-flying exploits that only our favorite cat and mouse duo can deliver! The tussling twosome are at it again, when Jerry, as the smallest member of Robin Hood’s gang encounters Tom, a feline squire to Maid Marian. Not only are the cat and mouse from opposite sides of the moat, but Tom is secretly working as a spy for the Sheriff of Nottingham and evil Prince John. But when the villains succeed in capturing Robin, Tom realizes to his horror that they intend on harming Marion as well. So he joins forces with Jerry, not only saving their respective humans but allowing for the safe return of King Richard as well.
“When you combine two great classics such as the timeless tale of Robin Hood and the lovable antics of Tom & Jerry, the result is Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood and his Merry Mouse, a brand-new, must-see film that kids and adults will love to watch time and again,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. She added, “This movie is a great companion to Tom and Jerry & the Wizard of Oz and Tom and Jerry Meet Sherlock Holmes, two original films which were also based on classics and were a hit with fans. We are delighted to offer consumers a fresh take on these legendary tales.”
Originally created byWilliam 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.
