The characters Tom and Jerry first appeared in 1940, with William Hanna and Joseph Barbera producing 114 short skits for MGM. The famous cat and mouse duo is famous worldwide and has starred in several TV shows, but Warner Bros. seems now to be making progress on their first ever live-action Tom and Jerry film.
