Classic MGM cartoon foes TOM AND Jerry are being dusted down for a new seven-minute, one-off episode, which will premiere in Britain on New Year's Day (01JAN01).
One of the most iconic cartoon duos, Tom and Jerry have lain dormant since 1970, but have been brought out of retirement to resume their battle. The episode will debut on CARTOON NETWORK on New Year's Day, alongside 161 original Tom and Jerry battles in a special themed day.
The episode's called MANSION CAT and features Tom and Jerry in a spat that results in the cat's owner's mansion being trashed. The new cartoon is directed and written by KARL TOERGE, with JOSEPH BARBERA as story consultant and providing the voice of the hapless mansion owner. (RGS/WNWUN/NFA)
