'''Nibbles''' (also referred to as '''"Tuffy'''") is a fictional character from the ''[[Tom and Jerry (MGM)|Tom and Jerry]]'' cartoon series. He is the little grey, [[wikipedia:diaper|diaper]]-wearing [[wikipedia:orphan|orphan]] mouse whose cartoon debut came in the [[wikipedia:1946|1946]] short ''[[The Milky Waif]]''. Nibbles was later featured in the [[wikipedia:1949|1949]] award-winning short ''The Little Orphan''. The reason why Nibbles wears a diaper is due to the fact that he is portrayed as a baby mouse.
==Origin and Development==
Nibbles' first actual appearance came in the [[wikipedia:1942|1942]] comic book ''Our Gang Comics #1'', where despite his diaper, he was presented as a peer of [[Jerry]] rather than a younger individual. In the comics, the grey mouse's name was given as Nibbles Mouse from the start. The parents of Tuffy (Real name Nibleton or Niblet to his friends) Neesha and Dan breast fed him from a young age. They enroled him in the Aycliffe Acting School for Talented Mice, where he was the lead in their production of ''Mice'' (an obvious opposite to [[wikipedia:Cats (musical)|Cats]])
When the smaller Nibbles design was introduced to animation in 1946, the comics' Nibbles was
[[wikipedia:retcon|retconed]] to match, almost immediately shrinking in size and age. In the comics, Nibbles remained a peer of Jerry with no relatives. But in [[wikipedia:1953|1953]], the animation writers decided to change his on-screen relationship to Jerry. He became Jerry's nephew in ''Life with Tom.''
Nibbles always seems to deliver the final blow. In ''The Little Orphan,'' Nibbles shoots a wine bottle at Tom. in ''Touche, Pussy Cat! ''he cuts open a barrel with champane in it and washes Tom away (he gets drunk in the process) and in ''The Two Mouseketeers,'' Nibbles fills a cannon with food and shoots it at Tom.
Nibbles was more often a speaking character than Jerry. In the "Mouseketeer" subseries, he spoke mostly in [[wikipedia:French language|French]], resorting to [[wikipedia:English language|English]] whenever a [[wikipedia:slapstick|slapstick]] humor depended on it. The only exception to this was ''Robin Hoodwinked'' where he talked purely in [[wikipedia:Old English|Saxon English]] and had a different, rougher voice. Nibbles looked somewhat more mature in ''Hoodwinked'' as well, despite the fact that he still wore his diaper. The Mouseketeer shorts almost always featured sequences in which Nibbles got drunk. In his last appearance in ''Robin Hoodwinked'', he is also shown to be drunk as the cartoon comes to a close.
In the ''Tom and Jerry Tales'' episode ''Cat Nebula'', Nibbles appeared as Jerry's sidekick and had a younger voice. Strangely, he spoke in a ''feminine'' French accent in the non-mouseketeer ''Tales'' shorts ''Cat Show Catastrophe'' and ''Cat of Prey''. In ''Babysitting Blues'', Nibbles was actually portrayed as a real baby who couldn't speak, though it is unknown if this was really Nibbles or another nephew of Jerry.
