Added DiffLines:

* ParentalAbandonment: Two examples; Tom and Jerry are left behind by their owners when they move away (and are even still inside the house when it's demolished), and Robyn has a MissingMom and DisappearedDad, the former dead, the latter away for most of the film.

Added DiffLines:

* AndStarring: Charlotte Rae as Aunt Figg. Why the filmmakers evidently thought [[LiveActionTV/DiffrentStrokes Edna]] [[LiveActionTV/TheFactsOfLife Garrett]] was such a big draw remains a mystery.


Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: The cop who returns Robyn to Aunt Figg remains oblivious to the many signs that all is not right in that house.


Added DiffLines:

* SocialServicesDoesNotExist: Did Robyn even give a statement to the police, or did they just drag her back to the house she was ''physically struggling'' to stay away from, no questions asked?

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.
