** Tom never ever did ''anything'' wrong! Tom was only following his instincts, how ''dare'' Jerry object to being eaten!

** Tom never ever did ''anything'' wrong! Tom was only following his instincts, how ''dare'' Jerry object to being eaten!eaten! And trying to stop poor Tom from eating his friends or selling them off? For shame!

* 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 piano 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.

* DracoInLeatherPants: In a bit of an unusual case, both main characters tend to get this treatment.

*** For Tom's fans, Spike is definitely an annoyance. He treats Jerry well yet is always a {{Jerkass}} to Tom, hitting him, scolding him, bullying him when Tom never does anything to him in the first place. In fact, there are many viewers who both like Tom and Jerry dislike Spike, thinking that the war between Tom and Jerry is none of his business.

** Also, fans who view Jerry as the VillainProtagonist.

** Also, fans who view Jerry as the VillainProtagonist. Of course, in some cartoons, he explicitly ''is''.

* 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/JohnKricfalusi and ''Cartoon Brew'' editor Amid Amidi have criticized the shorts for their [[StrictlyFormula formulaic stories]] and supposedly unimpressive "workman-like" animation.

Animation historian Michael Barrier is also not a fan of the series, claiming that nothing actually happens in the cartoons.

** The earliest cartoons featured Tom and Jerry looking more like a real cat and mouse, and making real animal sounds. Hanna and Barbera soon realized that this made them too much like laughing at animals getting hurt, and anthropomorphized them a little more.

Hanna and Barbera soon realized that this made them too much like laughing at animals getting hurt, and anthropomorphized them a little more. The design refinements were also simply a cost factor: It was much more time-consuming and painstaking to draw realistic fur on Tom, so they made his design much cleaner so it would be easier for the animators.

* 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.
