Tom & Jerry is an animated cartoon series which has been promising on cartoon network channel since 1940’s. It forms a vital part of almost every person’s childhood days.
It was originally created as a series of short films by William Hanna & Joseph Barbara. They produced about 114 Tom & Jerry shots for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayor from 1940 to 1958. But this series still continues to rule hearts.
Even as the world is progressing rapidly, and new cartoons have taken over the industry, the era of Tom & Jerry will never meet demise.
The series is loved by one and all and holds a very special place in hearts of many. The plot originally deals with Tom and Jerry as main characters.
Tom is the big, hungry cat while Jerry is the brave, cute mouse. The series unwinds a cat-mouse camaraderie and wins hearts of millions of people watching it on a daily basis.
Normally, a cat overpowers a mouse and eats it as a meal. But, in this case, even though Tom makes all efforts to devour Jerry yet Jerry succeeds in one way or the other by escaping him in the nick of time.
But the series of events that takes place during this facade is hilariously amusing. One can actually die of laughter while watching Tom & Jerry.
One shot is about 6-10 minutes in length. Thus, it does not bore the viewers out of their mind and keeps them interested in the episode.
The best thing about this series is that it never fails to entertain people. It keeps them on their toes with the amusing tricks and hacks of both the characters.
Initially, when the series develops, some more additional changes were made to it. When it was first aired on television, it was aired in black and white colors.
But as technology developed, we see the characters gaining colors which make their sight even more pleasant. More so, Tom & Jerry was kind of a silent film but their antics took the audiences by surprise.
But with the sophistication in technology, the characters gained voice and the screenplay was also customized to add background music to the effect.
Though, till this date the characters have not been given much voice, but in some later episodes it was seen that the characters used their voices once or twice.
But the team behind the cartoon series made sure that the series retained its original charm and did not stray haywire.

Even though I am an adult, yet the love for Tom & Jerry will never die, no matters what, teenagers and adults still have a profound liking in this TV series and till date, they switch on television just to see this series.
The charm of this series cannot be stolen by any new generation cartoon series.
All the other series are just hollow who play with the minds of children just to earn a few bucks.
Yet cartoons like Tom & Jerry fascinate people all over the world till date.
It provides ample entertainment without indulging in obscene acts or usage of abusive language.
In some series, Tom and Jerry even befriend each other for their own ulterior motives and entertain the audiences together against a common enemy.
I guess that episode has still not been designed when Tom finally eats up Jerry. Tom and Jerry cause turmoil in the landowner’s house.
It is always Tom who bears the brunt of the landlady’s anger. So, we see that out Tom is always at a disadvantage.
He neither get’s to eat Jerry as his food nor can he resist a see-off with the landlady due to his own wrongdoings. But nevertheless, Tom still manages to win over hearts.
The designing, screenplay and script of the TV show is minimalist with no confusing complications.
Yet it is so enticing that viewers cannot stop themselves from being hooked onto this TV series. It is an easy on the mind show which ensures viewers a roller coaster ride of adventure, laughter, sorrow, joy and trouble.
Tom and Jerry when together are always trouble and no one can stop them from the creation of mayhem and euphoria.
Jerry is adamant on eating cheese and Tom is adamant on eating Jerry. But, it is mostly Jerry who succeeds in his motives.

It also helps me to de-stress my mind of all worries. But out of all, Tom and Jerry amuses me the most. Even when I am viewing a repeated episode, it does not bore me and always entertains me.
I don’t agree that cartoons are only meant for children. Actually, they are far better than those TV serials which fill your mind with negativity and overwhelming thoughts.

Tom always tried to catch Jerry but he never succeeded as Jerry was sly and more cleaver than Tom. This never ending comrades always kept my spirits up in every situation.
