What do you do when you want to make a movie starring the most popular cat and mouse in the world? [[SuddenlyVoiced Give them the ability to talk and sing]], make them become [[FireForgedFriends friends]], add a bunch of humans, turn it into [[TheMusical a musical]], and strip all the slapstick, [[DeadpanSnarker of]] ''[[InNameOnly course!]]''

Unfortunately, because all of this was completely unrelated to Tom & Jerry or their legacy, [[BoxOfficeBomb the film bombed]] and was critically panned, and the DirectToVideo ''Tom and Jerry'' films made since have, to their credit, tried to stay closer to the original formula. It is worth noting that [[Creator/HannaBarbera Joseph Barbera]] worked on this movie and allowed all of this to occur. Then again, he was also involved in [[WesternAnimation/TheTomAndJerryShow their 1970's incarnation]], which was equally watered-down. Suffice it to say, ''Tom and Jerry: The Movie'' is the only work in the franchise of its kind.

* DarkerAndEdgier: While in the shorts all the violence and danger was always PlayedForLaughs, here the central conflict revolves around a child whose mother died and father was presumed dead for most of the movie. Also as noted by NostalgiaCritic, when Tom gets cut to pieces in the movie, his insides are actually blood colored.
