The iconic cat and mouse rivals Tom and Jerry episodes are taking their never-ending battle to HD. We have an exclusive first look at Cartoon Network’s The Tom and Jerry Show, a revival of the classic in a brightly colored, high-definition world. With the same look, characters and sensibility of the original films dating back to 1940, each episode will consist of two, 11-minute shorts. Tom and Jerry Episodes

Each episode will feature Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse plotting against each other—with Tom’s determination matched only by Jerry’s own cleverness in evading capture. But this time the cartoon mayhem will not be limited to only Tom and Jerry’s familiar suburban setting. In The Tom and Jerry Show, the title characters’ nonstop game of cat and mouse will expand to also include more fantastic worlds, from a witch’s cabin to a mad scientist’s lab.

The Tom and Jerry Show kicks-off with the following stories on Wednesday, April 9 at 5:30 p.m. (ET/PT):

  • “Spike Gets Skooled” – Tom gets Spike sent to obedience school, and Jerry is left without a protector. When Spike returns, Tom tries hard to get Spike to revert to his old ways. Jerry fights back to make sure that Spike keeps his cool.
  • “Cats Ruffled Furniture” – Tom is under strict orders to not wake the Witch sisters, but Jerry is set on getting Tom in trouble. When Tom uses the magic spell wand and makes all of the furniture come alive, he must get the help of Newt to make everything go back as it was.
