WarnerMedia Kids & Family Greenlights Tom and Jerry Time for Cartoonito on HBO Max and Cartoon Network

Warner Bros.

Iconic Cat and Mouse Duo Star in their First-Ever Preschool Educational Animated Series from Warner Bros. Animation

Burbank, CA (Sept. 13, 2021) - The famous cat and mouse rivals are at it again in their first-ever preschool animated series Tom and Jerry Time. Combining hilarious antics with key early learning concepts, Tom and Jerry Time aims to teach young viewers the skills they need to explore the world around them. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the greenlight of the original new series was announced today as part of WarnerMedia Kids & Family's live virtual event celebrating its new Cartoonito preschool programming block, debuting today on HBO Max and Cartoon Network.

Based on the beloved classic that so many parents grew up with, Tom and Jerry Time introduces a whole new generation to these iconic characters with a fresh and original take, said Amy Friedman, Head of Kids and Family Programming, Warner Bros. For our youngest audience, Sam Register and his team at Warner Bros. Animation managed to keep all the playful hijinks, drop all the cartoon violence, and add the most delightful early childhood learning through song and story. It's playful - with a purpose - and we think parents and their little ones will love watching and learning together.

Presented as a series of animated musical shorts, Tom and Jerry Time turns the world created by the biggest rivalry in all of animation into a fun and cheerful cartoon classroom. Both characters, known for their over-the-top personalities, are natural-born teachers, with Tom showcasing confidence and resilience while Jerry highlights ingenuity and courage. Preschoolers will be introduced to their comical mischiefs - chasing, pranking, and outsmarting each other - while also learning key social and emotional skillsets, lessons in independence, early math and literacy skills, and other key preschool educational concepts.

Sam Register (Looney Tunes Cartoons) is executive producer. Will Finn (Tom and Jerry in New York) serves as showrunner and co-executive producer with Denise Downer (Stillwater) on board as story editor.
