* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Many of the cartoons end with Katnip being brutally killed, and the mice playing around with his dead body. (For example, using Katnip's corpse as a Christmas tree in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CEJFLCSGH0&t=5m50s "Mice Meeting You"]]).

If imitation, as they say, is the sincerest form of flattery, then Creator/FamousStudios' ''Herman and Katnip'' certainly flattered Creator/{{MGM}}'s WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry. Given that any mouse and cat cartoon is going to have some similarities with any other cat and mouse cartoon, the resemblances of the characters is still quite striking.

Added DiffLines:

* CatsHaveNineLives: At the end of "Naughty But Mice," Herman thoroughly dispatches the cat that has been eating his cousins, only to be greeted by nine feline ghosts rising from the grave to chase him away.

* BloodierAndGorier: Of ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'', not really [[BloodlessCarnage bloodier]] but even more violent and mean-spirited in tone.


Added DiffLines:

* DarkerAndEdgier: Than ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry''--not really [[BloodlessCarnage bloodier]] but even more violent and mean-spirited in tone.


Added DiffLines:

* InflatingBodyGag: In "Rail Rodents", Katnip gets his head stuck in a water tower's output pipe and inflates like a balloon. In "Mouse Trapeze", Herman tricks Katnip into drinking from a hose connected to a fire hydrant, swelling several times larger before he pops off and flies across the room.

Herman was voiced by Arnold Stang, who later supplied the voice for TopCat. There is quite a similarity between the mouse's voice and that of Leo Gorcey of the Bowery Boys. Syd Raymond supplied the voice for Katnip. Raymond was also the voice of WesternAnimation/BabyHuey.
