The Mansion Cat is a 2001 American made-for-television animated cartoon, the first entry in the original Tom and Jerry series of short in 34 years since Purr-Chance to Dream in 1967 and the 162nd overall. It is also the first short involving William Hanna and Joseph Barbera in 43 years since Tot Watchers in 1958. Produced by Hanna-Barbera Cartoons in association with Turner Entertainment Co., and distributed by Warner Bros. Television, making its first Tom and Jerry cartoon released by Warner Bros. Entertainment since the 1996 Time Warner-Turner merger. It premiered on Boomerang on April 8, 2001, making it the only Tom and Jerry short made especially for Boomerang.[1][2] In addition, this was one of the last cartoons produced by Hanna-Barbera before its absorption into Warner Bros. Animation later in the same year due to Hanna's death of throat cancer, several days before the short premiered. It was also the first Tom and Jerry short to use digital ink and paint.

Seven months later, the short premiered on The WB as part of its Kids' WB block in November 2001. Despite being a TV short, in countries like Latin America, it was premiered in theaters alongside The Powerpuff Girls Movie.


The cartoon opens with a circle showing Jerry running, but as the circle grows, it is revealed that Jerry is going nowhere, as Tom captured his tail. When Tom's owner (voiced by Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry co-creator and Hanna-Barbera co-founder) calls Tom, he lets Jerry go, freeing him back into his cage. The owner of Tom and a large mansion tells Tom that he is going away for a while, that the mansion is in perfect shape and that he does not want Tom blaming the mouse (Jerry) for any destruction this time. Of course, this means Tom will spend most of the cartoon chasing Jerry across the mansion, causing extensive damage.

First, Tom kicks Jerry out of the mansion, sits on the sofa and eats much food stolen from the refrigerator while watching television (A clip of Muscle Beach Tom is shown). Afterwards, traditional chase and damage happen. Among the sequences include Jerry shoving Tom into a VCR and shelving the resulting cassette-sized cat, Tom trapping Jerry in a coffeemaker, Jerry trapping Tom in a refrigerator, Jerry sucking Tom and half the living room into a vacuum cleaner and finally Tom chasing Jerry through the yard and into the house on a riding lawnmower; the cartoon ends with Tom accidentally crashing the lawnmower into the returning car of his owner, who then tells Tom that he "makes a better hood ornament than a house cat".

Voice cast


The short has not yet been released on any home media and rarely airs on Boomerang in the recent years.
