by Ed Liuon July 15, 2011

by Dr. Daedaluson October 16, 2009
Tom and Jerry are a classic cat and mouse team that really needs no introduction. Everyone already knows them and their shorts: the comic violence, the well-orchestrated, jazzy music timed to the on-screen action, the gorgeous full animation, and the stories that can hold one’s attention without much dialog, if any.
