Best TV Shows Wiki

The Tom and Jerry Show is an American TV series based on Hanna-Barbera cartoon, Tom and Jerry, for Cartoon Network and later, Boomerang.

Why it Rocks

  1. It's a big improvement over the 1975 show of the same name.
  2. Stays true to the original Tom and Jerry shorts in every level.
  3. Archival recordings from William Hanna and Mel Blanc as Tom and Jerry are used.
  4. Good Flash animation, and the character designs are faithful to the original designs.
  5. Great voice acting. Tuffy's voice by Kath Soucie sounds really cute.
  6. Despite being short, the theme song is a nice updated version of the original Tom and Jerry theme tune.
  7. Tom & Jerry's dueling is still enjoyable to watch.
  8. It's previous series from 2006-2008, Tom and Jerry Tales, was also fun to watch.

Bad Qualities

  1. The infamous series premiere started the series badly and 17th episode of Season 2.
  2. The Flash animation, while good, appears to be much more stiff and restricted during Season 1. Thankfully as of Season 2 onwards, the animation quality has improved to be much looser and more true to the original shorts.
  3. While most of the characters stay true to their original personalities, Spike has been rather flanderized, where he went from a dog who was Jerry's sidekick against Tom to a mean, short-tempered and unlikable jerk who beats up both Tom and Jerry.
