Description

These animated shorts are products of their time.  Some of them may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros. view of today's society, these animated shorts are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.   Follow the madcap adventures of the original game of cat and mouse in Volume 1 of this classic collection as Tom, an ordinary housecat, pursues the pesky mouse, Jerry, for his supper. But Jerry, the quick-witted, audacious rodent who shares the house with Tom, can’t help from teasing his feline nemesis and thwarting his every attempt to catch him.

    7-8 minutes per show? really iTunes? Bundling 2 or 3 shows counting as one episode for 2 bucks, would get me to buy the entire season.
  • The Best

    By ChicagoLaurie
    Tom and Jerry are one of the best animated shows ever. To see i Tunes lecture us on "prejudices" (yes lecture, as almost the entire description revolves around race) is a little insulting. We know it's wrong now, I don't need iTunes to tell me that, nor should any entertainment be changed because it might be offensive to a certain group.
  • Keep 'em coming iTunes!

    I've been waiting on this for so long! To those of you complaining about the price, grow up! You can't even buy a 6-7 minute song for $0.99. Be glad they are willing to offer these classics.
  • Yes!

    Finally! I didn't think iTunes would ever sell the Tom and Jerry theatrical shorts! Thank you!
  • Keep them at one episode per download

    I like the fact that you get one episode per purchase. If they were bundled as two, I could be forced into buying an episode I don't want. Just my two cents!

    It was good, but the description is weird, no one cares if it was prejudice. Bottom line is we all grew up watching this cartoon, and I personally Love it.
  • Oh yeah!

    Boy, did I love these two characters growing up. They simply don't make cartoons like these anymore. Now it's blow up the earth or some super-duper 10 year- old with magic powers,and somehow he has the experience and money to build labs and all kinds of special equipment. These are when cartoons were what they were supposed to be: hilarious! When you talk about Tom and Jerry from this era that is just what you get. Please keep em' coming!
  • Awesome

    The humor isn't what you would expect from today's cartoons and yet it is really funny to watch Tom and Jerry. A timeless classy that should not be missed...

  • A cartoon for all ages

    By Pellegrino Italo DeGuglielmo
    Tom and Jerry is a great classic that many people had great childhood memories of watching. Tom and Jerry is one of my favorite cartoons of all time. Watching Tom and Jerry is a part of my childhood. I always love Tom and Jerry even when I'm an adult. Even though It's amazing I can still watch Tom and Jerry on DVD and on iTunes, I can only hope that Cartoon Network will show Tom and Jerry again. Tom and Jerry is an awesome cartoon. If you had great childhoodhood memories of watching Tom and Jerry and if you still like Tom and Jerry as an adult then good for you. If you don't like Tom and Jerry anymore then shame on you. It's great that I still love Tom and Jerry regardless of how old I get. If you still love Tom and Jerry regardless of how old you get then keep enjoying Tom and Jerry and watch Tom and Jerry again when you can.
  • The Description

    The Description of these iTunes has produced about Tom and Jerry being a Racist Cartoon may be the stupidest most non descriptive description I have read... The cartoons are classics and when I was growing up we didn't think about race as much as we do today - If you want a good laugh and some great memories buy these cartoons and for once lets quit taking ourselves so seriously that we get offended all the time... LET IT GO - trust me - your life will be better for it.
  • I love this show!! ❤️❤️

  • One of the best classic cartoons ever made

    By VideoGame Fan15
    I think that Tom and Jerry might have been inspired by Looney Tunes, and that, and the slapstick violence, are what make it so great. The show even managed to get away with certain things, like occasional violence with guns and knives, execution scenes, references to heaven and hell, and even suicide! These days, kids cartoons with all of that would get banned! Basically, Tom and Jerry is one of the best slapstick cartoons of all time.
  • How is this Racist

    5
    By Altavelocidad
    There is nothing racist in any of these cartoons. They were the reality of the behavior and culture of the time. Society was a different species of humanity in the 1940's. Absolutely no need for anyone to day to apologise or try an delete the truth. What would a cartoon that authentically depicted the behaviors of different races to day look like? Now THAT would be shocking.
  • False Advertising

    By Mana Spell
    The description claims to be the original versions of Tom and Jerry. Yet despite this most scenes have been edited from their original version for example: in "His Mouse Friday" the screen is cropped at the end as to not show the child tribesman. In "Blue Cat Blues" the screen is slightly zoomed in. In "Truce Hurts" the blackface gag is cut by having it cut immediately after the meat truck splashes mud on Tom, Jerry, and Spike. It doesn't show these and possibly others uncensored. Not to mention the episodes aren’t even slightly close to being in the correct order… What happened to the first 40 episodes? EDIT: Oh and Puss Gets the Boot and The Framed Cat have dubbed Mammy Two shoes dialogue and not the original Lillian Randolph.
