The Tom and Jerry Show is a 2013 television series based on Tom and Jerry. The show made its worldwide debut on Teletoon on March 1st, 2014, and aired on April 6th, 2014 on Cartoon Network USA. It also premiered April 7, 2014 on Cartoon Network Latin America. The show is currently on hiatus in the United States, but clips from Boomerang UK's YouTube channel featuring unreleased content show that a third season has already started airing in the United Kingdom.
The series follows the antics of Tom in his pursuit to catch Jerry. However, episodes can follow one of four different scenarios, including:
- Tom and Jerry's antics in a modern day urban setting.
- Tom and Jerry being pets to two witches named Beatie and Hildie.
- Tom and Jerry working together in the city by operating an agency called "The Cat and Mouse Detectives," complete with a narrator (voiced by Gary Cole)
- Jerry living in a lab with a rat companion named Napoleon, and Tom being an alley cat. This scenario was discontinued after Season 1.
Starting with Season 2, the segments were reduced to seven minutes instead of eleven and now have three segments instead of two.
"The iconic cat and mouse rivals are back in The Tom and Jerry Show, a new, fresh take on the classic series. Preserving the look, characters and sensibility of the original, the all-new series shines a brightly colored, high-definition lens on the madcap slapstick and never-ending battle that has made Tom and Jerry two of the most beloved characters of all time."
