  3. Tom and Jerry working together as detectives in Tolucaville (Los Angeles in the second season) by operating a detective agency called "The Cat and Mouse Detectives", complete with a narrator.
  4. Jerry living in a lab with a rat companion named Napoleon with Tom being an alley cat (used only in season one).
  5. Tom working as a butler in a Downton Abbey property (introduced in season three).
  6. Tom and Jerry living in a scary Transylvanian environment in a parody of Van Helsing (introduced in season three).

Production

The Tom and Jerry Show was initially announced to consist of 26 episodes divided into 52 11-minute segments to air on Cartoon Network, with the intention to remain faithful to the original theatrical short series.[3] The show was originally intended to premiere on Cartoon Network in 2013[4] before being pushed back to April 9, 2014.

From the second season onward, the art style of the show was retooled and the series running time for the segments is now 7 minutes to more closely resemble the original MGM shorts.[5] Because of the running time switch, the half-hour episodes contain 3 segments instead of 2.

The series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and Renegade Animation, with Renegade handling the actual production work under the supervision of Darrell Van Citters and Ashley Postelwaite. Renegade Animation is also known for producing Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi, and The Mr. Men Show. It is the second Tom and Jerry television series produced in the 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and the first to be animated in Adobe Flash. It is also the second made-for-television iteration of the cartoons to emulate the theatrical shorts and the fifth made-for-television Tom and Jerry production.[6] It is also the longest running Tom and Jerry series, overtaking Tom & Jerry Kids.
