Tom and Jerry Special Shorts is a 2021 web series based on Tom and Jerry. The show made its debut on HBO Max on February 20th, 2021.This show is a revival of the Tom and Jerry theatrical shorts. The series received mostly positive reviews.
The classic comedic duo of Tom and Jerry is back in brand new shorts that showcase the rambunctious rivalry fans know and love.
Both Tom and Jerry's character designs in this show are based on their appearances from the mid-1940s cartoons, in contrast to previous post-1986 Tom and Jerry shows where the cat and mouse were usually drawn based on their appearances from the late-1940s/early-1950s cartoons. This is very noticeable in Tom's character design, whom is drawn with a more rounded face and two whiskers twirled together like a moustache.
This word appears without switching to the major word "Tom and Jerry cartoon" and small writing "Produced in Hollywood, U.S.A." or "Made in Hollywood, U.S.A.". Instead, only the word "end" appears, but in the Moroccan version the major word "Tom and Jerry cartoon" and a small inscription "Produced in Hollywood, U.S.A.".
