On this day in 1940, Metro Goldwyn Mayer released Puss Gets the Boot, a 9-minute animated theatrical short featuring the inaugural appearance of Jasper and Jinx, a cat-and-mouse duo which were the first creations of William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, and would later become cartoon legends Tom and Jerry! The series would endure for 18 years and 161 shorts, between 1940 and 1958, earning them 7 Academy Awards in the process, and would see numerous revivals, on the big screen and TV, including, but not limited to, H-B's 1975-77 revival, The New Tom & Jerry Show!


A very happy 75th anniversary to Tom and Jerry!! :D :) 8-) :lol:
