Top 10 Tom and Jerry shorts

July 20, 2015


Thinking about Tom and Jerry, and I figured I’d post 10 of my favorite shorts … it’s amazing how old they are (They came out in the 40s!!!!) still funny 40 years later in the 80s and even now!
I didn’t type much about them since I’m giving you the videos, AND I recorded a short podcast talking about the cartoon
