Tom and Jerry Special Shorts was a 2021 web series based on Tom and Jerry. The show made its debut on HBO Max on February 20th, 2021.[1]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.

  • This is the first show
  • This is the shortest Tom and Jerry show ever, lasting not even a year.
  • The show shares the same animation style with Looney Tunes Cartoons.
  • 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.
  • On a Roll and The House that Cat Built are the only episodes to be aired before the release of Tom and Jerry (2021 film).
  • The series' title card is reminiscent of the early-1940s Tom and Jerry title card as seen from "The Midnight Snack" (1941) up until "The Yankee Doodle Mouse" (1943).
