About Tom and Jerry in brief

Summary Tom and JerryTom and Jerry is an American animated franchise and series of comedy short films created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera. Best known for its 161 theatrical short films by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the series centers on the rivalry between the titular characters of a cat named Tom and a mouse named Jerry. In its original run, Hanna and Barbera produced 114 Tom and Jerry shorts for MGM from 1940 to 1958. During this time, they won seven Academy Awards for Best Animated Short Film, tying for first place with Walt Disney’s Silly Symphonies with the most awards in the category. A number of spin-offs have been made, including the television series The Tom and. Jerry Show, The Tom & Jerry Comedy Show, Tom &Jerry Kids, Tom andJerry Tales, and The Tom. and Jerry Show. The cartoons are known for some of the most violent cartoon gags ever devised in theatrical animation. Tom may use axes, hammers, firearms, firecrackers, explosives, traps and poison to kill Jerry. On the other hand, Jerry’s methods of retaliation are far more violent, with frequent success, including slicing Tom in half, decapitating him, shutting his head or fingers in a window or a door, stuffing Tom’s tail in a waffle iron or a mangle, kicking him into a refrigerator, getting him electrocuted, pounding him with a mace, club or mallet, letting a tree or electric pole drive him into the ground, sticking matches into his feet and lighting them, tying him to a firework and setting it off, and so on.

There is no blood or gore in any scene. A musical adaptation of the series, titled Tom and Jerry: Purr-Chance to Dream, debuted in Japan in 2019 in advance of Tom and Jerry’s 80th anniversary. The first feature-length film based on the series was released in 1992, and 13 direct-to-video films have been produced since 2002, with an upcoming live-actionanimated hybrid film set to be released in 2021. The series features comic fights between an iconic pair of adversaries, a house cat and a Mouse. Despite Tom’s clever strategies, determined and energetic mindset, large size, and exceptional overall intelligence, he rarely succeeds in getting the best of Jerry, mainly because of Jerry’s cunning abilities, luck, and his lack of tendencies in being a bit too reckless. Despite their endless attacks on one another, they have saved each other’s lives every time they were truly in danger. Despite being portrayed as a living, comfortable, pampered life, Jerry is a small, brown house mouse who always lives in close proximity to Tom. For example, the character Mammy Shoes has nearly every cartoon in which she appears, even though she appears in nearly all of the cartoons. Generally, there is little dialogue as Tom; however, the two lead characters do not speak English on rare occasions, and the minor characters are not similarly limited.
