Tom and Jerry Return in New Cartoon Network Series
October 9, 2012

The Cartoon Network is bringing back classic cartoon antagonists Tom and Jerry in a new series. The Tom and Jerry Show will run a half-hour, composed of two 11-minute shorts in each episode. No release date has yet been announced. As the network describes it,

The Tom and Jerry Show

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.

They’re aiming to be faithful to “the look, core characters, and sensibility of the original theatrical shorts”. I hope that means that long-time fans as well as new younger viewers will both enjoy the series. The executive producer is Sam Register, who most recently revamped another set of legacy characters with The Looney Tunes Show, making them more “contemporary” as well.

I’m not a huge “Tom and Jerry” fan, but hope it’s better at being modernized than “The Looney Tunes Show” (which feels like someone grew up watching “Seinfeld” and other sitcoms more than LTs themselves). Being split into two shorts per episode sounds like it won’t fall into that situation, though. Wonder if it’ll be similar to the *last* T&J revamp, “Tom and Jerry Tales”…
