In a few months, we will be able to see a new full-length film with iconic characters, Tom and Jerry. This time it will be a hybrid film, with live actors and drawn characters from the famous cartoon.
Tom and Jerry began life as a series of animated short films created by animation pioneers William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and first introduced in 1940. They were dedicated to the exploits of the domestic cat Tom and his endless battle with Jerry the mouse.
Seven short films produced by MGM won Oscars from 1943 to 1953. The cartoon couple has remained in the pop-culture consciousness for many years, first getting their feature film, Tom and Jerry: The Movie, only in 1993.
