Production

The Tom and Jerry Show was initially announced to consist of 26 episodes divided into 52 11-minute segments to air on Cartoon Network, with the intention to remain faithful to the original theatrical short series.[12] The show was originally intended to premiere on Cartoon Network in 2013[13] before being pushed back to April 9, 2014.

From the second season onward, the art style of the show was retooled and the series running time for the segments is now 7 minutes to more closely resemble the original MGM shorts.[14] Because of the running time switch, the half-hour episodes contain 3 segments instead of 2.

The series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and Renegade Animation, with Renegade handling the actual production work under the supervision of Darrell Van Citters and Ashley Postelwaite, both of whom used to work for Warner Bros. before leaving to form Renegade in 1992. Renegade Animation is also known for producing Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi and The Mr. Men Show. It is the second Tom and Jerry television series produced in the 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and the first to be animated in Adobe Flash. It is also the second made-for-television iteration of the cartoons to emulate the theatrical shorts and the fifth made-for-television Tom and Jerry production.[15] It was also the longest–running Tom and Jerry series, overtaking Tom & Jerry Kids.

Broadcast

The Tom and Jerry Show premiered on March 1, 2014 on Teletoon in Canada.[16] The series premiered on April 9, 2014 on Cartoon Network in the United States.[17] In the United Kingdom and Ireland, it began airing on April 12, 2014 on Boomerang,[18] and also on CITV in 2016 (including all episodes following "Say Uncle").
