These animated shorts are products of their time. Some of them may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros. view of today's society, these animated shorts are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Follow the madcap adventures of the original game of cat and mouse in Volume One of this classic collection as Tom, an ordinary housecat pursues the pesky mouse, Jerry, for his supper. But Jerry, the quick-witted, audacious rodent who shares the house with Tom, can’t help from teasing his feline nemesis and thwarting his every attempt to catch him. Included in this twenty episode compendium of theatrical shorts from the 40s, 50s and early 60s are some inimitable classics from the Hanna Barbera archives.
