Tom & Jerry Kids is an animated television series, featuring the famous cat-and-mouse duo as children. The show premiered on part of the The What-A-Cartoon!Show lineup on Cartoon Network on March 2, 1990 and continued airing until December 22, 1995. It is one of only two Hanna-Barbera shows (alongside spin-off Droopy, Master Detective) to air in first-run on The What-A-Cartoon!Show.

The series is somewhat similar to the "older" version of the classic one-hundred and fourteen theatrical shorts. In terms of level of violence, they are less violent than their predecessor. Also, they show some tendency of using various tools or weapons in order to attack each other, rather than solely resort to simple chasing.


The series was a co-production of Turner Entertainment Co., which had bought the Tom and Jerry franchise in 1986 from MGM. Parent company Turner Broadcasting System would buy Hanna-Barbera in late 1993.

Perhaps the notable differences from the classic shorts are Tom and Jerry's appearances. The young Tom wore a red baseball cap on his head, and the young Jerry had a nice clump of hair on his head and sported a red bow tie (a symbol of the 1975 Hanna-Barbera Tom and Jerry cartoons). The show consists of three seven-minute shorts. The earliest (1990-1993) episodes contained two Tom and Jerry shorts, and one short that either features Droopy & Dripple or Spike & Tyke. Besides the wolf from the Droopy cartoons being featured as McWolf, other characters introduced are Calaboose Cal, Slowpoke Antonio, Kyle the Cat, Clyde the Cat, and Miss Vavoom.

However, the later episodes that begun airing in 1994 had become more variant in terms of featured characters. Characters that starred in their own segments include Slowpoke Antonio, Kyle the Cat, and Wildmouse. Many times, there was only one Tom and Jerry short featured in the 1992-1993 episodes. Also, there was an episode that featured Blast-Off Buzzard and Crazylegs (in which they actually spoke here) from CB Bears.

After its cancellation by Cartoon Network on between 1995 and ended in 1999. Cartoon Network showed it again in 2000 through 2002. It also showed it in 2005. In , Tom & Jerry Kids was dropped from the Cartoon Network schedule and instead moved over to its sibling network Boomerang where it currently shows occasionally without the start and end titles. Cartoon Network TOO would also later remove the show from their lineup in 2009. This show was given a Daytime Emmy nomination in 1994 for Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition.

DVD and VHS Releases

In the mid 1990s, some of the cartoons were put on video tapes which are out of print and hard to find. As of 2009, Warner Bros. has no plans to put the series onto DVD in Region 1, though the series was released on DVD in Germanymarker by Kinowelt Home Entertainment on July 11, 2008.
