The much-loved cat and mouse duo, ‘Tom and Jerry’, are all set to embark on a brand-new adventure through the vibrant city of Singapore as Warner Bros. Discovery announces its first-ever localized ‘Tom and Jerry’ series. Produced in Asia in collaboration with Warner Bros.

Discovery, expressed his excitement about the project, stating, “This series brings back the iconic music and classic animation style from the Hanna-Barbera 1950s era, but with a modern Singaporean twist. With distinctive landmarks, backdrops, and atmosphere, the Asian city-state is the ideal location to create a humorous addition to the ‘Tom and Jerry’ canon. Working with homegrown creative talent in Singapore and across Asia, this project grows the much-loved franchise in the region and beyond.”

Vishnu Athreya, Senior Vice President of Series, Warner Bros. Animation, and Cartoon Network Studios, also shared his enthusiasm, stating that Tom and Jerry’ are two of our most universally loved characters, proving that laughs can translate to any audience. The fans in Asia have long embraced these characters, and it’s great to finally give them a version to call their own.”

The animation is brought to life by Aum Animation Studios India, with compelling stories and designs from Singapore-based Robot Playground Media and Chips and Toon Studios.

As part of the celebration, fans can also anticipate the launch of additional ‘Tom and Jerry’-branded consumer products, perfectly complementing the series launch later this year.
