“Tom and Jerry have been a fan favorite since they first appeared in theatrical shorts decades ago.

She added, “We are delighted to offer new Tom and Jerry content to consumers with this entertaining new title.”
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.
