The Tom and Jerry Show

The Tom & Jerry Show was produced for ABC Saturday mornings by Hanna-Barbera Productions and Metro Goldwyn Mayer Television in 1975.

In a much toned down, non-violent format, the long-popular Tom and Jerry, after years of rivalry, became the best of friends in episodes wherein they roamed the world competing in sports, enduring on-the-job misadventures, running afoul of dastardly villains, solving mysteries and helping others.

My favorite episode (although I love them all) was called An Ill Wind. In it, an old traveler in the desert gives Tom and Jerry a map to a gold mine to thank them for saving his life. During the search for riches the two of them have to deal with outlaw Black Barney who also wants it.

  2. Nice article! I am a full-fledged devotee of Hanna-Barbera's 1975 Tom & Jerry Show, and remained so ever since afterschool second/third grade. It shows in my New Tom & Jerry Information Site, the web site devoted solely to the preservation and perpetuation of the 1975 version of Tom and Jerry. Check it out! ;-)
