    Hanna-Barbera filmography (1940-1958) 
  • Puss Gets the Boot: Debut of Tom and Jerry, although they are called Jasper and Jinx in this meant-to-be oneshot cartoon.

  • The Midnight Snack: First short where Tom and Jerry are dubbed as such. First official Tom and Jerry cartoon.
  • The Night Before Christmas: Nominated for the 1941 Academy Award for cartoon short subjects.

  • Fraidy Cat
  • Dog Trouble: First appearance of Spike the Bulldog.
  • Puss n' Toots
  • The Bowling Alley Cat
  • Fine Feathered Friend

  • Sufferin' Cats!: First appearance of Meathead the Cat.
  • The Lonesome Mouse: First T&J short in which they talk. Rarely aired on Cartoon Network and Boomerang due to a short scene where Jerry repaints Tom as Hitler and spits on it. When it does air, the scene is cut. The scene, however, was shown on Toon Heads.
  • The Yankee Doodle Mouse: First T&J short to win the Academy Award.
  • Baby Puss: First appearance of Butch and Topsy the cats.

  • Kitty Foiled: First appearance of the Canary.
  • The Truce Hurts
  • Old Rockin' Chair Tom
  • Professor Tom
  • Mouse Cleaning: One of the two "banned" Tom and Jerry shorts. Jerry Beck claims that it will be included, restored, in a future collection to make up for its removal from the Spotlight Collections. However, it was delayed. The short is still aired on TV, albeit edited to remove the (fairly lengthy) scene of Tom in blackface.

  • Little Quacker: First appearance of Quacker.
  • Saturday Evening Puss: Only time we get a chance to see the face of Mammy Two Shoes, but only as a freeze-frame bonus (unless you've ever seen the edited version made in the 1960s and was in circulation until the 1990s where Mammy Two Shoes is redrawn as a white teenage girlnote  and her night out at the Lucky Seven Bridge Club is changed to dancing at her boyfriend's house).
  • Texas Tom
  • Jerry and the Lion
  • Safety Second
  • Tom and Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl
  • The Framed Cat
  • Cue Ball Cat

  • Casanova Cat: The second of the two "banned" shorts, although a future DVD release is planned but was delayed. The short is still aired on TV, albeit edited to remove the (lengthy) scene of Jerry in blackface.
  • Jerry and the Goldfish
  • Jerry's Cousin: Nominated for the 1951 cartoon Academy Award.
  • Sleepy-Time Tom
  • His Mouse Friday: Rarely shown on TV due to African stereotyping and is usually edited on home video. There are two edited versions: The first one is the MGM/UA Home Video version which mutes out all the cannibals dialogue (including Jerry's imitation) making the cartoon awkward and a little incomprehensible. When Cartoon Network and Boomerang air this short (the few times they do), this is the version that comes on. The second version is the Warner Home Video version which is mostly uncut but crops the screen near the end so the young cannibal who pursues Jerry is unseen.
