Episodes used a ThreeShorts format, mirroring the length and format of the original theatrical shorts. Secondary characters from the original series returned, many for the first time since the 1950s. {{Droopy}} even starred in a few shorts alongside Tom and Jerry. It may have lacked some of the madcap {{slapstick}} violence of the original shorts, and towards the end relied too heavily on RecycledInSpace-styled plots, but it tends to be viewed as better in comparison to past ''Tom & Jerry'' adaptations, as well as other cartoons on at the time.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalVillainy: Most of the time, Jerry is shown to be an absolute sadist who provokes Tom or gets him into trouble just for laughs. All while wearing an open-mouth smile. This is in contrast to the classic shorts, in which Jerry was either just out for food, Tom went after him on his own, or one of Tom's often-abusive owners forced him to.

* DeusExMachina: At the end of "Hi Robot!" when the {{Fembot}} suddenly becomes a sentient living being at the last minute despite being completely emotionless and mechanical up until then.
* EnemyMine: In a few shorts. For example, in "Cry Uncle" the duo teams up to get rid of Jerry's annoying Uncle Pecos (who first appeared in 1953's "Pecos Pest").

* RecycledINSPACE: The duo is in the Middle Ages, prehistoric times, the US Revolutionary War...and even, indeed, IN SPACE!!
* {{Robosexual}}: In "Hi Robot!", Tom builds a mouse {{Fembot}} in order to trick Jerry into falling in love with it (which he does), but in the end the robot develops emotions and falls in love with Jerry, giving Tom a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown for wanting to hurt Jerry.

* SureLetsGoWithThat: Tom once entered a cat show and Jerry and Nibbles decided to sabotage him. One of their plans included adding lemon juice at his voice spray for his {{Pagliacci}} act. With the sounds he made once the juice made effect, the narrator assumed (and announced) that Tom gave up opera and decided to imitate bird songs. Tom decided to play along.
* SwappedRoles: Jerry pursues Tom in "Game of Mouse & Cat", despite being much smaller than a cat. [[spoiler: It turns out it was a simulation run by Jerry.]]

* WalkThroughTheCamera: In the short "You're Lion" where Tom and Jerry saw many lions in a dark hut. Tom runs away towards the camera, and runs back out.
* WhatMeasureIsANonCute: Tom is actually GenreSavvy enough to manipulate this in "Little Big Mouse". Seeming to get wise to the "smaller cuter underdog creature always wins" formula, he retaliates to Jerry stealing food by getting an even smaller and cuter looking ant to steal it all back for him, and takes pleasure watching Jerry convert into a bumbling persuer for once.

* DependingOnTheArtist: In season 2, the show was animated by three overseas studios: Creator/RoughDraftStudios, Creator/YearimProductions, and Creator/ToonCity. Rough Draft episodes tended to be on-model but with less in-betweens, while Yearim and Toon City opted for [[AnimationBump fuller animation.]]

* LastNoteNightmare: For some strange reason, the last note is a dissonant chord after a fairly upbeat theme song.
