Introduction to Tom and Jerry
Tom and Jerry is one of the best cartoon shows and also the longest-running series. The series is based on slapstick drama involving humor and physical activity that exceeds common-sense boundaries.
Tom and Jerry is an American Television series running since the 1940s, which is the biggest achievement for any television show. The show is about the Cat whose name was Tom and the Mouse named Jerry, they both argue and fight in that show and the chemistry between them makes everyone laugh and enjoy.
Jerry is a small brown mouse and Tom is a grey Cat, Tom gets pampered by her owner and Jerry also lives in his house. Although they are rivals in the shot they show good friendship to each other.
If another one comes into danger then they are willing and devoted to becoming warriors to save each other. They fight for food, especially Jerry, he can’t see Tom in a comfortable zone and he is always ready to put him in a little problem. Tom always chases Jerry but he never gets him.
The series’ recurring characters
Tom and Jerry’s series has some other characters like Tike, butch, Nibbles, Toodles Galore, and Spike. We see a dog in this series whose name is Spike. Spike is an unintelligent Dog, but sometimes he behaves like a vicious Dog. Spike is quite lovable, and innocent.
He has a sweet young son Tika, Spike shows a temper toward everyone but he always shows a soft spot for Tika. If sometimes Tika gets any problem Spike is ready to blame Tom for everything.
It doesn’t matter whether Tom is involved in that matter or not. Spike mostly chases around Tom in some episodes and shows anger toward him. In that series, we see one black cat named Butch, Butch is ready to support Tom because they both try to catch Jerry.
This is the one thing that seems to be common between Butch and Tom. Many times, Butch and Tom are seen flirting with a lady Cat named Toddles Galore.
On the other hand, another character is the carefree mouse named Nibbles, Nibbles is Jerry’s nephew and a member of the musketeer’s group. Nibbles always create trouble for Jerry through his actions because he is always less aware of his surroundings.
