The Tom and Jerry Comedy Show (1980)

The Tom & Jerry Show is an 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 H-B co-founders and former MGM cartoon studio staff 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]

Unlike other incarnations, Tom and Jerry are shown as friends instead of enemies, and this series did not use the slapstick chases and the violence central to the theatrical shorts, due to concerns at the time regarding such material on children's programming.[3]

A total of 48 seven-minute Tom & Jerry shorts were produced in 1975[3] and originally aired in these following formats on ABC Saturday morning:

  • The New Tom and Jerry/Grape Ape Show (September 6, 1975 – September 4, 1976, ABC Saturday 8:30–9:30 a.m. [EDT])
  • The Tom and Jerry/Grape Ape/Mumbly Show (September 11, 1976 – November 27, 1976, ABC Saturday 8:00–9:00 a.m. [EDT]) (reruns of Tom and Jerry and Grape Ape)

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 Warner Bros. Discovery's Warner Bros. Discovery Networks, which Turner Broadcasting System 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.
