Riding shotgun on the cartoon-stars-as-kids bandwagon (see A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and Flintstone Kids) was Hanna-Barbera's Tom and Jerry Kids, based on MGM's popular warring cat and mouse duo, only this time, the cat and mouse were kitten and baby mouse in their very own new show.
The remaining segment rotated each week, with some of the original characters from Tom and Jerry returning to the small screen, as well as a bevy of new ones. The droll dog Droopy was back, this time with his son Dripple (a virtual doppelganger of dad), trying to outsmart the wicked Wolf. Also making a long-overdue comeback was the sprightly Spike the Dog, with his son Tyke in tow. Newcomers included such animated additions as Wild Mouse, Slow Poke Antonio, the Gator Brothers, and the Mouse Scouts. Droopy eventually got his own spin-off in 1993's Droopy, Master Detective.
Even as kids, Tom and Jerry pounded, pummeled and pounced on each other to the delight of a new generation of audiences. The 39-episode show was a success, and the two went on to their first feature (and their first speaking roles) in 1992's Tom and Jerry: The Movie.
