Classic Cartoons Headed to Netflix: Get Ready for Tom and Jerry Tales
Exciting news for Netflix viewers in the United States! On June 12th, 2023, the streaming service will welcome "Tom and Jerry Tales," featuring multiple seasons of the beloved classic cartoon by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.
Developed in 2006 by Joseph Barbera, Rob LaDuca, and Jeff Davison, this two-season edition showcases the iconic cat-and-mouse duo's hilarious escapades. Across 26 episodes, divided into 78 segments, you'll witness the timeless characters, with Tom in relentless pursuit of Jerry. The talented Don Brown and Sam Vincent provide their voices for this iteration.
While this version of the classic cartoon may have missed a few elements, as noted by Common Sense Media, such as the connection to the music and certain internal logic, it remains a delightful journey down memory lane.
This announcement follows a recent trend of licensing animated titles from the WBD library to Netflix. Netflix has persistently acquired additional animated shows.
The lineup includes three DC animated series: "Justice League," "Justice League Unlimited," and "The Batman."
These exciting shows are set to arrive throughout May 2023.
Warner Bros Discovery's focus on short-term cash and content licensing has removed significant titles from HBO Max. However, for fans of Tom and Jerry, HBO Max (soon to be called Max) and Boomerang will remain the go-to platforms for past content.
Currently, HBO Max offers the 2021 movie and three seasons of the 1940 series, while Boomerang streams listed as follows as:
The Tom and Jerry Show in (1975)
The Tom and Jerry Show in (2014)
Tom & Jerry - The Fast and the Furry in (2005)
Prepare yourself for the laughter and entertainment that "Tom and Jerry Tales" will bring to Netflix as the mischievous duo continues to captivate audiences old and new.
