After their house is destroyed in (what else?) another of their battles, Tom and Jerry end up evicted and forced to find somewhere else to live. Cue a mansion being advertised on TV as the prize of [[TheBigRace The Fabulous Super Race]], a race around several of the world's most iconic locations. With new vehicles and new challengers, the titular duo find themselves in the race of a lifetime.!!''Tom and Jerry: The Fast and the Furry'' contains examples of:* TheAllegedCar: Tom's car remains a piece of junk even after he fixes it in the junkyard, and constantly malfunctions, misfires and falls apart.* TheBigRace: The Fabulous Super Race.* ButtMonkey: Tom, of course. He gets run over, crushed by his own car, inked in the face, frozen, and then some.* ContinuityNod: A poster for ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryBlastOffToMars'' can be seen in Hollywood during the final sprint.* CorruptCorporateExecutive: ** J.W. Globwobbler, the executive producer of The Fabulous Super Race and head of a major studio. It's clear from the get-go that he cares more about the ratings his race gets then the race itself, resulting in many racers [[spoiler:getting killed or lost]].** To a lesser extent, the President of Hollywood. While he's just as indifferent to the race as J.W., he does care ''a lot'' about Hollywood's image, and [[spoiler:shows he's not afraid to ''literally incinerate'' studio executives that disappoint him]].* CruelAndUnusualDeath: Steed Dirkly. After pausing to woo a beautiful mermaid he discovers that she has razor sharp teeth. We cut to the hosts who receive word that he's being served as a meal. They describe said meal in detail before deciding it sounds delicious. * DarkerAndEdgier: Somewhat. All of the racers barring the titular duo are [[spoiler:either missing or dead by the end of the movie]].* DarkIsNotEvil: Gorthan, the Destroyer of Light. Despite having a scary/sinister theme in his and his car's design, and his magic, he is one of the nicer contestants.* DisintegratorRay: [[spoiler:How Hollywood's president "[[DeadlyEuphemism fires]]" J.W.]] * GettingCrapPastTheRadar: At one point during the final sprint, Tom and Jerry end up racing so fast they end up knocking the Statue of Liberty's robes off, leaving her in a bikini. Said statue then does a provocative pose and Tom and Jerry [[DistractedByTheSexy turn back to look at her]]. Tom even does a WolfWhistle!* ItsAllAboutMe: One of the racers, Steed Dirkly, has this as the center theme of his personality.* KarmaHoudini: Biff and Buzz do not get any repercussions for tricking Gorthan into licking a pole.* KilledOffForReal: Several of the racers die.* NeverMessWithGranny: Grammy may appear to be your standard sweet old lady, but she's actually an incredibly deadly racer who makes it quite far in the race. [[spoiler:Not even death stopped her from returning (as a ghost) to sabotage Tom]].* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Punchy the BoxingKangaroo's specialty: he unloads beatings on Biff and, after he saws Australia in half, Tom.** Also after the race ends in a tie, [[spoiler:J.W. Globwobbler informs Tom & Jerry that contracts says they have to do the race ''all over again.'' They don't take this well and beat the living daylights out of him.]]* ShoutOut: The movie's title is an obvious reference to ''Film/TheFastAndTheFurious''.* WackyRacing: The movie's primary theme.* WeHardlyKnewYe: One of the racers, Dr. Professor, gets blown up by his own antimatter engine before the race begins.* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: The last time we see "Soccer Mom" is when she escapes her car right before it sinks into quicksand. She sets off with her backpack into the jungle and a load of creepy looking bug silhouettes ominously cloud the camera. To twist the knife even further, the epilogue states that she hasn't ever been found despite intense searching efforts. * WhoNamesTheirKidDude: At the start of the race, Soccer Mom names all of her kids during a brief interview with the hosts. Amongst those name named is "Angus" who is a girl.
