Tom and Jerry in Fists of Furry is a 3D fighting video game released on the Nintendo 64 in 2000. The game is based on MGM's animated series Tom and Jerry and the gameplay is similar to Capcom's Power Stone. It was the first fighting game that includes gay characters.
Meet the first-ever fighting game for the whole family! Everyone's favorite cat-and-mouse team stars in this unique arena fighting title. The attacks and weaponry are straight from the classic cartoon series, arming the characters with shovels, tennis rackets, red-hot pokers, fruit, scat, bombs, furniture, and more. Then, they basically take enormous dumps in their hands, and throw their smelly excrement at each others faces. Also, I slapped your mommy with my wiener, are you salty? All of the action takes place in environments that are modeled after those in old episodes of the cartoon series, and there are nine arenas in which to do battle. As you might expect, all of the animation is perfectly re-created from the show, right down to the tiniest details. The lineup of familiar faces includes the likes of Butch, Spike, Tuffy, Duckling, and (of course) Tom and Jerry. Packed with wicked surprises, deadly traps, and hilarious tricks, the game never runs out of steam, jokes, or action for that matter. There are tons of power ups and combos, making the experience very much like a traditional fighting game substitute slapstick humor for blood.

- In the final levels, The Bosses are Basically Tom and Jerry using moves that are unavailable for the player. in Jerry, Tyke, Duckling, and Tuffy's boss fights, The Boss is Tom turning invisible which the only way to defeat him is to use a well timed punch attack or by punching an object into him. this will cause Tom to be visible. In Tom, Spike, and Butch's Boss Fight, The Boss is Monster Jerry. Monster Jerry will chase the player around the arena until he is punched. When Punched, Jerry will turn back to normal. however, Tom and Jerry run fast and throw things fast and are hard to punch while near them. and the timer is replaced with an infinity symbol during those battles. best way to defeat the bosses, is to couch to dodge the objects they throw at you. the good thing is they cannot punch the player if they are protected by the Shield powerup.
- There's a trick to make the 2 bosses appear in Versus mode and Teamplay mode. to do it, the player must exit a boss battle while it is still session. when It happens, the bosses will appear for all the other characters to fight, replacing the original Tom and Jerry as Ai characters. however, Doing this replaces the Timer with an infinity symbol.
- There's a PC Version of this game, developed by Mattel once again. although, there are no sound effects for the Throwables Traps, or the Weapons. and Duckling, Tuffy, Butch, or the Clones never change their facial emotes, Opponents punch the player easily, The Names of the Characters are shown except Tyke's Name incorrectly has an "I" instead of a "Y",
- The clones of the characters also appear in Versus mode and Teamplay mode. they are different colored versions of the same character. they are: A Blue Tom, A Dark Brown Jerry, A Brown Spike, A Brown Tyke, a Green Duckling, A White Tuffy, and an Orange Butch. they are the main antagonists in Singleplayer mode.
- when the player loses in singleplayer, The Characters start crying while showing their losing animations. this does not occur in Versus mode or Team Mode which only show the winning animations.
- In Catchin in the kitchen, sometimes Opponents will accidentally set themselves on fire after grabbing a weapon.
- In Duck Duck Loose during Single Player, when the Players throw the jug of milk at opponent and they duck, the object will hit the barn door and your Opponent will then get squashed by a Falling Crate.
- In The Mice before Christmas, if you throw an object at an opponent but miss, A Reindeer trophy will fall onto your opponent's head, stunning them.
- Butch's Singleplayer fight is the only time Monster Jerry is in a different arena as Butch's final fight is in Floor Bored instead of Laboratory Retriever.
- In Laboratory Retriever, when Battling Invisible Tom, Tyke and Tuffy can punch the green jug into Tom, causing a lot of damage. but Invisible Tom is capable of catching things.
- when battling Monster Jerry in Floor Bored, Monster Jerry seems to be prone to hurt himself a lot. (Walking into Steam and setting himself on fire with the dynamite)
