Thomas "Tom" Cat and Jerry Mouse are an animated cat-and-mouse duo created in 1940 by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for a series of cartoon shorts distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Originally named Jasper and Jinx in their debut cartoon Puss Gets the Boot, they became MGM's most famous cartoon stars, starring in numerous cartoon shorts from then until 1967, as well as in various television shows and movies since then. Tom and Jerry are almost always battling each other and causing a lot of mayhem and destruction as a result. Usually, Jerry is the one who emerges victorious at the end of the short, though Tom manages to get the last laugh on rare occasions.
