* InternetBackdraft: When news came of the release of Tom and Jerry Golden Collection Vol. 2 deliberately not including the long awaited shorts "Mouse Cleaning" and "Casanova Cat", Warner Home Video got hit with such rapid online backlash from fans and collectors (amazon.com's [[http://www.amazon.com/Tom-Jerry-Golden-Collection-Blu-ray/product-reviews/B008POPRS8 page for the set]] has ''155 one star reviews, all complaining about this'') that they decided to postpone its release (although its uncertain if it will get released with the shorts, or will be canned altogether).
** If the same internet legions are good at research it appears to be the selling people vs the legal people. It seems that set will not come unless the day comes the legal team allows those two shorts in it.
** Surprisingly averted that no completists are ragging about no The Mansion Cat either? Sure it's a modern short, but it's also indeed not out on home media for whatever reason. Making it the third we lack on DVD.

** Might be a genius bonus - at least one Holmes adaptation (the Jeremy Brett series) has retconned Clay into being an underling of Moriarty.

** Averted with Fists of Furry on the N64. A Tom and Jerry fighting game might sound like a recipe for disaster, but the end result is a competent PowerStone clone with the cartoon's slapstick elements mixing into the formula very nicely.

** Averted with "The House Trap" on the PS1, which is a decently fun Spy vs Spy clone with well designed home level.
** Also averted
with Fists of Furry on the N64. A Tom and Jerry fighting game might sound like a recipe for disaster, but the end result is a competent PowerStone clone with the cartoon's slapstick elements mixing into the formula very nicely. Later got a spiritual sequel in PS2 and Gamecube as War of the Whiskers

* HilariousInHindsight: Used to be the #1 Cat Cartoon in Japan. Then from the shadows a [[WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball weirder talking cat]] took the crown.

** Tom and Jerry are widely considered to be the greatest silent comedy duo in animation. Their two creators would go on to [[Creator/HannaBarbera start an animation studio notorious for extremely dialogue-heavy cartoons]].

Added DiffLines:

* FanficFuel: What would happen if Tom even ''caught'' Jerry? The possibilities have been speculated since the beginning.

* HypeBacklash: Widely considered to be one of the greatest theatrical cartoon series from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, but in the internet age, a handful of notable (and notably opinionated) animation personalities such as Creator/JohnKrisfalusi and ''Cartoon Brew'' editor Amid Amidi have criticized the shorts for their [[StrictlyFormula formulaic stories]] and supposedly unimpressive "workman-like" animation.

* EthnicScrappy: Mammy Two-Shoes. Later TV airings would dub her with a less "stereotypical" voice, but it didn't last long.

* ToughActToFollow: Like most cartoon seires' from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, the original shorts are iconic. Any re-imaginings that followed are up for interpretation.



** Let's not forget, his original name was Jynx, which leaves his gender quite ambiguous.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Thanks to MGM's hefty budgets and the skilled work of several master animators, the original shorts feature some of the best character animation by a non-Disney studio. The effects animation in ''Heavenly Puss'' for the hell scenes is still stunning 70+ years later.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Jerry in spades. There's often very little middle ground in those who root for him and those who consider him the actual villain.
