Warner Bros. Discovery and Cartoon Network Asia are releasing the first-ever Tom and Jerry series set in Singapore. It will premiere on Cartoon Network, Cartoon Network Asia’s YouTube Channel and HBO GO on October 21.
Tom And Jerry Singapore
The pilot episode premiered on Cartoon Network Asia’s YouTube Channel in August. It featured the famous cat-mouse duo fighting over durians in the Lion City, with distinctive shots of Marina Bay and familiar high-rise apartment blocks, in a three-minute short. It is part of Episode 7 in the series.
There are seven episodes in the new animated series. It takes a Singaporean twist and it was produced locally with Warner Bros. Animation, in a first outside the United States.
What can fans expect?
Watch scenes of the mischievous pair kite-flying at Marina Bay, relaxing at the seaside in Sentosa, slurping on Ice Kachang, and encountering Merli – a character inspired by Singapore’s iconic Merlion, to name a few. Interestingly, the new show weaves together Singapore’s authentic environment and Tom And Jerry’s humour.
New episodes of Tom And Jerry: Made In Singapore air every Saturday globally on Cartoon Network and YouTube. Meanwhile, four episodes will be immediately available on HBO GO followed by a second episode drop in November.
Other events for Tom and Jerry in Singapore
Cartoon Network is hosting a kite-flying extravaganza at Marina Barrage in Singapore on the weekend of November 4 and 5 to celebrate the launch. Fans of the show can design their own kite, fly it, and cool down with ice cream. Plus, Tom and Jerry will star in upcoming WB100 Celebrating Every Story event at Sentosa from November 10 to 26, alongside themed games, behind-the-scenes, and other activities – all for free.
The new series is part of a wider partnership between Warner Bros. Discover and Singapore Tourism Board to collaborate on content that will inspire travel to Singapore.
The American animated cartoon series, Tom And Jerry, was created by Joseph Barbera and William Hanna. It first aired on October 27, 1940 which was the start of a legendary rivalry between a clever mouse and scheming cat. More than 80 years later, Tom And Jerry has taken various spins and is one of most iconic animated shows in history.
In fact, there has been more than 500 episodes and 15 movies made, and seven Academy Awards won in Tom And Jerry’s 83-year history.
