Did Tom & Jerry retire??!


I never got tired of Tom & Jerry, but I did have a dream of doing more with my life than making cartoons.

-Joseph Barbera

The Size Zero Myth:


Those were the gold ole days, when you had your TV set to the slapstick cartoon comedy and time would fly by watching those lovely cartoons. Well gone are those days, nowadays we have new kind of cartoon shows which break our realms of thinking.

So better get used to these modern cartoons because Tom and Jerry genre of cartoon shows have stopped airing!!

The Wise Hero Reality:


FYI: Tom & Jerry show is still on!! The second season of the new show aired on Feb 2016.

Created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, little did they know that this show would entertain a lot of people and gain popularity among them! Why is it hard to digest the fact that Tom & Jerry show still airs on TV, that’s because the popularity of such shows have gone down. Let’s get down to the facts.

We did an analysis and found below stats (courtesy IMDB website-rating as shown on Sep 2016)


Well exactly!! Our preferences have changed over the years! We are now more into the modern cartoon, and let’s face it our TV networks too have realized this and they are going as per “TRP’s” (Target Rating Points), hence airing the modern cartoons more often!!

But wouldn’t it be nice if those shows were back on Prime time and aired daily!! Maybe it’s time to show the next generation what they actually missed by making them watch these shows online!!

    I would love to see old cartoons on TV. I grew up in a house where modern was never our thing. We watched old cartoons, listened to classic rock, the whole nine yards. And I still love it. (I’m only 15.) Tom and Jerry was the best!

      Then definitely catch the episodes online. Don’t miss this. You will love it.

  2. I used to love watching Tom and Jerry. One thing that I always noticed about those cartoons was the lack of dialogue. You could keep up with the story without listening to any conversation. They just had really effective scenes and music.

    I still enjoy watching them and I am in my 30’s. My heart skipped a beat a bit when I read that they stopped airing. I hope my little one will enjoy them just as much some day.

    I never realized they still produce these cartoons. Interesting statistics. loved Looney tunes!! well, I still do. I agree It would be amazing if these cartoons were given prime time, only then would this generation start realizing what they are missing on.
