"Tiger Cat" is the first episode of Tom and Jerry Tales. It was originally broadcasted as the series premiere on September 23rd, 2006. It is directed by Neal Sternecky, written by Charles Schneider and storyboard by Kevin Frank.
Tom and Jerry are pursuing each other in a zoo. During the chase, Tom accidentally destroys the painting of an art-loving monkey. This leads to the monkey becoming quite angry, but he calms down after he makes Tom look like a tiger by dipping him in orange paint and adding black stripes on with his paintbrush. All the other characters in the episode, save the monkey himself, see Tom and think he is a real tiger.
