"Better than Tom and Jerry."

Tom and Jerry are two of Hanna and Barbera's most famous cartoon creations. The combative cat and mouse (who never spoke) first appeared in the 1940 theatrical short 'Puss Gets The Boot' (in which TomĀ is called Jasper). This one-off proved such a hit that a series was developed for cinemas. A TV version was launched in 1965, and the duo remain a hardy perennial.
