Added DiffLines:

** The fifties era Hanna Barbara shorts gained a better grasp of the grey dynamic between the two. The slapstick was more free game, Tom usually avoided being a DesignatedVillain, with Jerry either having a more benevolent personality or being punished whenever he surpassed Tom's mean streak. Their FriendlyEnemy chemistry was also displayed on a more regular basis. Most of the supporting characters had also been fully established and different backdrops from the usual household were frequently used, making for less formulaic scenarios.

* ViewerGenderConfusion: It is easy for first time viewers to assume that Jerry is a female since he has long eyelashes, [[MasculineLinesFeminineCurves round features]], [[PaleFemalesDarkMales a light color palette]], a tendency [[TakeThatKiss to kiss Tom,]] and a [[MamaBear motherly protectiveness]] over his sidekick whether it be a younger mouse, baby bird, duckling, or puppy. In ''Tom and Jerry: The Movie'', he even has a female voice actress.

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

* DorkAge: The Gene Deitch shorts, which wreck the formula by giving Tom a {{Jerkass}} owner who beats the stuffing out of him whenever he slips up. Moreover, it suffered a lot of [[OffModel animation errors]]. Not to mention the 1980s TV shorts.

* DesignatedVillain: By the same token, we're almost ''never'' meant to be rooting for Tom, even if he didn't actually do anything to provoke Jerry (or if Jerry doesn't even have the right to be provoked, like in the short when he screws with Tom's opera recital because it was disturbing his sleep or ruined Tom's game of golf because again, it disturbed Jerry's sleep; never mind that Jerry's the idiot who decided to set up shop in a concert hall's grand piano or inside the hole at a golf course.

** In the case of "The Karate Guard", not only does the opening horn fanfare sound similar to the ones in the classic cartoons, but Warner Bros. designed their VanityPlate to look ''very'' identical to MGM's blue-background cartoon intro.

* ContestedSequel: Or series in this case. Depending on who you ask there can be different cut-offs and zig-zags

** The WesternAnimation/TheTomAndJerryShow 70s era has a lot of detesters but seems to get a head of Deitch and Filmation these days, but it's held in higher esteem by general Creator/HannaBarbera fans
** The Filmation show gets more disowners. It starts the trend of MGM guys entering into the franchise but it seems people think it was better handled later.
** WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryKids is neck and neck with the Jones era for second best by most. But still has some detractors
** And finally in the recent incarnations, the dtv features are in decent standing with plenty of people on the other side.
** Similar to [[Franchise/ScoobyDoo others]] the CN reboot WesternAnimation/TheTomAndJerryShow seems to be very well liked by certain people and viewed as inferior to the dtv line.

* DudeNotFunny: The Gene Deitch shorts for playing animal abuse for laughs.
** The DirectToVideo movie ''The Fast and the Furry'' is one of the few works in the franchise to have characters explicitly die. Among them are an AbsentMindedProfessor, a CoolOldLady, and most crushingly of all, an innocent mother of young children. Rather than laughter, the target audience experiences something between [[NightmareFuel horror]] and [[SickAndWrong disgust]].
