Watch Tom and Jerry Tales
- 6 Seasons
Tom and Jerry Tales was a half-hour animated television series which aired on Kids WB from September 23, 2006 to March 22, 2008. The show was developed and produced by Warner Bros. Animation and was based on the classic cartoon characters Tom and Jerry, created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.
The show followed the classic cartoon formula of having Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse engage in a never-ending game of cat and mouse. The episodes were divided into three 7-minute segments, each featuring a new story in which the two rivals found themselves in various situations that would inevitably lead to wacky hijinks and slapstick comedy.
Tom was voiced by Frank Welker, who has been the voice of the character since the early 1990s. Welker captured the essence of Tom's personality perfectly, delivering his lines with the perfect blend of frustration and determination. Nicole Oliver, Michael Donovan, Reece Thompson, Tom Kenny, Don Brown, David Kaye, Janyse Jaud, Scott McNeil, Samuel Vincent, and Chantal Strand also lent their voices to the show, helping to bring the colorful cast of characters to life.
One of the most exciting aspects of the show was the incredible animation. The artwork was bright, bold, and fluid, capturing the essence of the classic cartoon characters while also bringing them into the 21st century. The animators did a fantastic job of capturing the intricacies of each character, from Tom's sly smirk to Jerry's cunning grin.
Each episode typically opened with an establishing shot of the classic Tom and Jerry house, before cutting to the characters engaged in some sort of activity. Sometimes they were simply relaxing, while other times they were causing mischief or battling it out in a full-blown war of the wills.
The show also introduced a number of new characters, including Spike the bulldog, who often served as a foil for both Tom and Jerry. Spike was characterized by his tough exterior and no-nonsense attitude, but he also had a soft spot for his young son Tyke, who was often caught in the middle of Tom and Jerry's antics.
Another new addition was Nibbles the mouse, who was Jerry's young nephew. Nibbles was portrayed as innocent and naive, often getting into trouble thanks to Tom's schemes. But he was also a loyal ally to Jerry and helped him out of a number of tight spots.
Throughout the series, Tom and Jerry's relationship remained the driving force behind the show. While they were often at odds with each other, they also had a begrudging respect for one another. Sometimes they would team up to overcome a common foe, while other times they would compete against each other in a race or other challenge.
The show was popular with audiences of all ages, thanks to its timeless humor and engaging characters. Whether you grew up watching classic Tom and Jerry cartoons or were introduced to the characters through this new series, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
In the end, Tom and Jerry Tales was a fun and entertaining show that paid homage to the classic cartoons that came before it. With its talented voice cast, stunning animation, and classic sense of humor, it was a fitting tribute to two of the most beloved characters in cartoon history.
