The New Tom & Jerry Show (also known as The Tom & Jerry Show) is an animated television series produced for Saturday mornings by Hanna-Barbera Productions in association with Metro Goldwyn Mayer Television in 1975 for ABC based on the original 1940-58 theatrical shorts starring the famed animated cat and mouse duo, Tom and Jerry.

Plot

Here, in a much toned down, non-violent, Yogi Bear and Boo Boo-esque format, the long-popular Tom and Jerry, after years of rivalry, have finally become the best of friends in episodes wherein they roamed the world competing in sports, enduring on-the-job misadventures, running afoul of dastardly villains, solving mysteries and helping others.

Broadcast history

A total of 48 7-minute New Tom & Jerry cartoons were produced in 1975 and originally aired in these following formats on ABC Saturday morning:

Immediately following the end of the original ABC run, these cartoons were edited within main and end title credits and added to run with theatrical-era MGM Tom & Jerry cartoons from 1940 to 1967 for syndication by MGM (H-B retained ancillary rights to the Mumbly and Grape Ape segments, with syndication rights to those segments going to Worldvision Enterprises in 1979).

Since 1986, it has been rebroadcast on TBS, Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Canada's Teletoon and Teletoon Retro (the former 3 networks are part of Time Warner's Turner Broadcasting System, which purchased the pre-1986 MGM library in 1986, and Hanna-Barbera in 1991). The cartoons have been shown with the main and end title credits intact on TBS and on the Teletoon channels, whereas Cartoon Network and Boomerang air the cartoons without the opening/closing graphics.
