Tom and Jerry was introduced in 1940. The cartoon shorts feature a cat named Tom and a mouse named Jerry. Games of "cat and mouse" are, of course, the order of the day.

Did you know? Tom's name was originally "Jasper," and Jerry was called "Jinx." The name Tom was aptly chosen, as it is both simple and a term used to refer to a male cat. "Tom and Jerry" was also an English term for 'riotous youth.'

The nearly 200 Tom and Jerry short cartoons have won numerous Academy Awards. Tom and Jerry have also starred in numerous television series and more than 13 feature-length films. They have also appeared in video games, comic books, and a Japanese musical.
