The Tom and Jerry Show

One of the world’s most beloved car­toon duos returns to tele­vi­sion in The Tom and Jerry Show, a fresh take on the clas­sic fren­e­mies com­ing soon to Car­toon Network.

Com­prised of two 11-minute shorts, each episode will fea­ture Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse plot­ting against each other — with Tom’s deter­mi­na­tion matched only by Jerry’s own clev­er­ness in evad­ing capture.

But this time, the car­toon may­hem will not be lim­ited to only Tom and Jerry’s tra­di­tional sub­ur­ban set­ting. In The Tom and Jerry Show, the title char­ac­ters’ non­stop game of cat and mouse will expand to also include more fan­tas­tic worlds, from a medieval cas­tle to a mad scientist’s lab.

Pre­serv­ing the look, core char­ac­ters and sen­si­bil­ity of the orig­i­nal the­atri­cal shorts, The Tom and Jerry Show shines a brightly col­ored, high-definition lens on a never-ending bat­tle that has set the stan­dard for car­toon rival­ries. After all, with a setup as ele­men­tary as a deter­mined cat chas­ing a resource­ful and mis­chie­vous mouse, the pos­si­bil­i­ties (and laughs) are endless!

Sam Reg­is­ter (The Looney Tunes Show, MAD, Teen Titans) serves as exec­u­tive pro­ducer on The Tom and Jerry Show. The series is being pro­duced by Warner Bros. Ani­ma­tion in con­junc­tion with pro­duc­ers Dar­rell Van Cit­ters and Ash­ley Postle­waite at Rene­gade Animation.

Tom and Jerry are two of the most iconic char­ac­ters on the planet,” said Reg­is­ter, Warner Bros. Animation’s exec­u­tive vice-president of cre­ative affairs. “While it’s impor­tant we honor their great legacy, we don’t want to keep them in the archives. We want to intro­duce them to a new gen­er­a­tion of fans.

As we have done with The Looney Tunes Show, The Tom and Jerry Show will bring Tom and Jerry into a con­tem­po­rary envi­ron­ment and tell hilar­i­ous sto­ries that kids and adults will love.
