Production and reception

Peter Browngardt developed the shorts after doing so for Looney Tunes Cartoons.

In February 2021, the shorts debuted on HBO Max with no prior announcement. According to Andrew Dickman, the series was worked on the crews spare time while on the production of Looney Tunes Cartoons.[3] Thought to be promotional marketing for the Tom & Jerry film, the shorts received positive reception from fans and critics.[4][1]

FR Dougal of CartoonMilk, an animation critic and a self-described lifelong Tom and Jerry fan, gave the shorts a negative review. Despite praising their art style's reminiscence of the mid-1940s character designs and numerous gags, he criticized the shorts' character animation, music, and inconsistent sound design, including the overuse of the William Hanna Tom scream.[5]

Removal from HBO Max

One month after the series' release, it temporarily left the service.[6] The reason of the removal from HBO Max was unknown, but it was eventually re-added in July 2021.[7] The series is currently no longer listed as its own program, but as two extras on the page for the Tom & Jerry film. When HBO Max rebranded to Max the shorts where removed again and have yet to reappear.
