Tom and Jerry
is one of America’s most iconic cartoons. Many older adults grew up watching the cat and mouse duo engage in the battle of the wits, with Jerry (the mouse) almost always managing to get away. Overall, the carton was an enjoyable one and beloved by tons of fans, many which remain fans of the series even today.
between Tom and Jerry was one of love and hate. Though every episode Tom chased Jerry around, even attempting to eat him a few times, the two would work together when it was necessary and even seemed to like each other sometimes. Now, Jerry wasn't the innocent in all of this. There were times when he would instigate Tom and get stuff started.
Tom and Jerry was produced by Rembrandt Films in 1960 in Eastern Europe. The production of the carton would eventually make its way back to the United States, in Hollywood. Sib-Tower 12 Productions handled production duties beginning in 1963. That would last for about 4 years, between the years of 1963 and 1967.
The Tom and Jerry series kept resurfacing throughout the decades of the 1980s, 80s and 90s. A movie was even produced in 1992. Tom and Jerry: The Mansion Cat, was released as a television short and aired in 2001. Tom and Jerry Kids, aired in 1990, and lasted until 1994. Younger versions of Tom and Jerry, Spike and Tyke and Droopy and Dripple were the show's primary characters.
Fans of the series were able to purchase a total of 30 shorts when the Tom and Jerry Deluxe Anniversary was released in 2011 to celebrate the cartoon's 70th anniversary. In 2009, the Tom and Jerry: The Chuck Jones Collection was released. It featured two DVD discs and 34 cartoons, along with two documentaries.
Time Warner currently owns the rights to the iconic cartoon, via their Turner Entertainment division. Warner Brothers takes care of the cartoon's distribution. Several spins offs have been produced via Turner Entertainment, amongst them, Tom and Jerry Tales.
