Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse, the stars of a long-running series of short theatrical cartoons produced by [[Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer MGM]] during UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, were the first characters created by [[Creator/HannaBarbera William Hanna and Joseph Barbera]]. In the first short, "WesternAnimation/PussGetsTheBoot" (1940), the cat's name was Jasper and the mouse was not named in the short, but was originally dubbed ''Jinx'' by the animators[[note]]Hanna and Barbera would later use the name Mr. Jinks for the cat they used for their Tom and Jerry {{Expy}} short series[[/note]].

The characters acquired their permanent names in an in-house contest held by MGM, with animator John Carr submitting the winning entry. Carr may have been inspired by the names of the two young tearaways in the 19th Century ''Life in London'' stories by Pierce Egan, or perhaps by the eggnog-like beverage known as "Tom and Jerry" (itself named after Egan's characters), or possibly even by the earlier, human animated duo created by Creator/VanBeurenStudios in the '30s. In any event, the ''Tom and Jerry'' series went on to become one of the most popular and successful of all time, with seven of its shorts winning [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Academy Awards]]. The only other theatrical animated series to win as many Oscars was [[WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts Disney]]'s ''WesternAnimation/SillySymphonies''.

Oh, and don't confuse them with that ''[[http://www.cartoonresearch.com/tomjerry/ other]]'' [[Creator/VanBeurenStudios Tom And Jerry]]. It'll save you a lot of trouble. Or, for that matter, the musical duo that went by the name "Tom and Jerry" for 7 years before switching to [[Music/SimonAndGarfunkel their real names]].
