Tom and Jerry: The Magic Ring is the first entry in the Tom and Jerry Direct-to-Video Film Series. Tom and Jerry return to their usual chase antics while living in the house of a magician named Chip. Tom is placed in charge of making sure the titular magic ring is protected. Naturally it ends up stuck to Jerry's head and the chase begins again.

  • The Dog Bites Back: As payback for bullying him with scary cat pictures and possibly other forms of assault in that cage, Tuffy after being given a growth ray by Jerry chases Joey and Freddie who have been turned into cheese.
  • Enemy Mine: As is tradition, Tom and Jerry have to work together to escape greater dangers.
  • The Faceless: Tom's owner Chip.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Pyschic Droopy makes the prediction Jerry will become a champion sumo wrestler, Jerry's only reaction is to look directly at the camera in confusion.

  • Scooby-Dooby Doors: A variant chase happens in a crowded intersection with Tom being chased by various enemies and the police.
  • Slap Stick: There's plenty to go around.
  • Shout-Out: The scene where Butch Cat runs away from objects getting dropped on him is a reference to Bad Luck Blackie, where a bulldog gets the same fate.

  • Talking Animal: Virtually every cat, dog and mouse except for Tom and Jerry.
