Tom & Jerry Kids is an American animated children's comedy television series co-produced by Hanna-Barbera and Turner Entertainment Co., and starring the cat-and-mouse duo Tom and Jerry as children (kitten and mouse). It began airing as the first program of the Fox children's block, Fox Kids, (known as Fox Kids Network at the time this show aired) on September 8, 1990 and ended on December 4, 1993.
It spawned a Droopy spin-off Droopy: Master Detective, but sadly, his spin-off series didn't last for very long.
Catchy theme song, especially saxophone cues and vocals.
Has a crossover episode: Scrapheap Symphony.
The following shows, Tom and Jerry Tales and The Tom and Jerry Show (2014) are also well-received.
Some of characters like Nibbles Mouse, Karl (Kyle's son), Bernie Bird, Lightningbolt the Squirrel, Stinker Jr. (Mcwolf's son), don't make enough appearances. For Example. Nibbles only appear in Season 4 epsiode Musketeer Jr. and Karl only apperaing in the Season 1 epiosde Puss'n Pups.
Characters like Butch, Quacker, Toodles Galore, Lightning, Topsy, etc. still don't appear in the series. Which was a missed opportunity, but at least appear again such as Tom and Jerry Tales.
Eliza, from the episode Tom, the Babysitter, was a huge jerk to Tom, when he was protecting and taking better care of the baby than she, who was talking on the phone. She is considered Jeannie's version of this series from the original series, in fact both were negligent with their babysitting work and falsely blame Tom, who was taking good care of the baby.
Tom and Jerry Kids was popular in Europe, especially in Italy.
The guy who designed the characters from the show from Season 2-4 onwards, Butch Hartman, later created The Fairly OddParents!, Danny Phantom, among other of his Nickelodeon shows.
The reboot of this series was announced as Tom and Jerry Junior in February 2021, it was currently in development, but still unknown if it had a same connection to Tom & Jerry Kids or something completely different, the only differences is that it would take place in the classroom, so others were not confirmed yet.
