William Hanna and Joseph Barbera created the cat Tom and the mouse Jerry, better known as “Tom and Jerry” in 1940. Today, you can see Tom and Jerry in the following images below.
Having grown up professionally in the Walt Disney studios, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera decided to move to the Metro Goldwyn Mayer film company in 1937. Here they produced numerous cartoon films.

The endless twists, turns, the imaginative, and never predictable gimmicks of Tom and Jerry are built with such professionalism and care for the movements and details that the characters seem to be made of rubber.
In 1957, Hanna and Barbera left Metro Goldwyn Mayer and set up on their own, creating the famous “Hanna & Barbera” company. Tom and Jerry do battle with each other with no holds barred.
It always happens that Jerry, hungry, comes out of his den in search of cheese; Tom is immediately on him with his claws unsheathed.
Tom and Jerry begin to chase each other from room to room, hiding under carpets, in pots and pans and kitchen items, along corridors, inside furniture, and even in household appliances, which become deadly weapons that put Tom’s fur, tail, and mustache at risk, and he is regularly defeated in duels.
Tom & Jerry thus became the highest-grossing film series of all time, surpassing the Looney Tunes. Chuck Jones then produced another 34 short films with Sib-Tower 12 Productions between 1963 and 1967.
A television short, Tom and Jerry: The Mansion Cat, was produced in 2001, and a final film short, The Art of Karate, was released in 2005. All of the shorts have been distributed on home video.
The first feature film based on the series, Tom & Jerry: The Movie, was released in 1992 and was followed by a series of direct-to-video films beginning in 2002.
Numerous short films have been the subject of controversy, especially for racial stereotypes involving depicting the recurring black character Mammy Two Shoes and names appearing in blackface.
Many people think that Tom and Jerry’s final episode ended with the death of the two characters by suicide.
The episode is Blue Cat Blues, which ends with the cat and mouse sitting on a railroad track, waiting for the train. The issue has become a real creepypasta legend, which many have discussed.
