Followed byThe Tom and Jerry Comedy Show (1980)

The Tom & Jerry Show is a 1975 American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions in association with MGM Television. Based on the Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon series (which was created by HB co-founders William Hanna and Joseph Barbera), the show originally aired on ABC from September 6 to December 13, 1975 (for a total of 16 episodes) as the first half of The Tom and Jerry/Grape Ape/Mumbly Show, with The Great Grape Ape Show representing the series' second half and The Mumbly Cartoon Show representing the series' third half. [1] This series marked the first time that Tom and Jerry appeared in animated installments produced specifically for television.[2]

This series does not use the slapstick chases and the violence central to the theatrical shorts, due to ABC's ban on violence.[3]

Immediately following the end of the original ABC run, these cartoons were edited within the main and end title credits and added to run with theatrical-era MGM Tom and Jerry cartoons from 1940 to 1967 for syndication by MGM until 1986 (H-B retained ancillary rights to the Mumbly and Grape Ape segments, with syndication rights to those segments going to Worldvision Enterprises from 1979 until 1991). Some independent television stations in the 1980s have aired the Tom and Jerry segments without the Mumbly and Grape Ape segments in their syndicated Tom and Jerry package as part of some stations' lineup, such as WFLD in Chicago and WYAH in Portsmouth, Virginia.

Since 1986, it has been rebroadcast on TBS, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Canada's Teletoon and Teletoon Retro (the former three networks are part of WarnerMedia's Turner Broadcasting System, which purchased the pre-1986 MGM library in 1986 and Hanna-Barbera in 1991).

The cartoons have been shown with the main and end title credits intact on TBS, Boomerang streaming service, and Cartoon Network.

From 1985 until 1995, ATN, later Seven Network (the Australian ‘’American Broadcasting Company’’) aired the show in Australia.
