Tom and Jerry 1971
Barratt Films, TV, Sci Fi & Comic Art Tom and Jerry 1971 Tom and Jerry 1971 50 - In August 1940, Hanna and Barbera joined forces to direct the furry feline and mouse in their first six-minute cinema cartoon ?Puss Gets the Boot? which was an instant success and was nominated for an Academy Award. Other cartoons quickly followed, the hilarious cat and mouse antics providing much-needed laughter during the darkest years of the war, and in 1944, Jerry won audiences? hearts when he danced a sequence with Gene Kelly in the musical ?Anchors Aweigh?. The comic duo continued to delight the critics too, and in 1953 they awarded their eighth Oscar. Tom and Jerry?s lives changed in 1958 when MGM?s animation studios closed, a move which motivated Hanna and Barbera to start up their own television production company which not only originated new cartoons, but also re-animated many of the old ones. Kids, of course, love Tom and Jerry, so its hardly surprising to find Barratt?s issuing a series of fifty cards featuring the cartoon favourites, with their sweet cigarettes back in 1971, each colour picture being a self-evident situation in which Tom usually comes of worst, with a suitable description on the back. Size 67 x 36mm
