  • Jerry the Mouse
rdfs:comment
  • Jerry the Mouse appeared in the Tom and Jerry The Movie video game.
  • Jeremy "Jerry" Adam Mouse is a fictional animated character and the deuteragonist in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films. Created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbara, Jerry is a brown anthropomorphic mouse, who first appeared in the 1940 MGM animated short Puss Gets the Boot. Hanna gave the mouse's original name as "Jerry", while Barbara claimed the mouse went unnamed in his first appearance. In "Tom and Jerry: the Movie", he was voiced by Dana Hill, and serves as the deuteragonist. He is Tom's rival.
  • Jerry the Mouse is the titular mouse character (and one of the main protagonists) of the Tom and Jerry cartoon franchise, who is constantly in conflict with Tom. Like Tom, Jerry almost never speaks out loud. In almost every cartoon, Jerry is being chased by Tom and ends up severely harming Tom in retaliation. The Tom and Jerry cartoons have long been and continue to be the #1 archetypal example of cartoon violence in American culture. The popular interpretation of Jerry as a villain has famously been parodied on The Simpsons by Itchy.

  • Jerry the Mouse is the titular mouse character (and one of the main protagonists) of the Tom and Jerry cartoon franchise, who is constantly in conflict with Tom. Like Tom, Jerry almost never speaks out loud. In almost every cartoon, Jerry is being chased by Tom and ends up severely harming Tom in retaliation. The Tom and Jerry cartoons have long been and continue to be the #1 archetypal example of cartoon violence in American culture. While Tom is widely considered by default to be the "villain" between the two, many post-modern audiences have taken more and more notice to the brutal injuries that Jerry regularly inflicts on him, and sympathize more with Tom. Indeed, Jerry is technically a pest who shouldn't be living in the house, and Tom likewise is simply doing his job as a good pet by trying to get rid of him, and in a number of cases Jerry has arguably been the instigator of conflict. However, these cases are the exception rather than the rule, and in the vast majority of episodes Tom is clearly the instigator. Overall, the conflict between the two characters is closer to an equally two-sided, active rivalry than anything else. In other media beside the original shorts by Bill Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Jerry tends to be less villainous, though not always the case. When Chuck Jones took over the series in the 1960's he admitted that he didn't understand the characters that well, and Jerry occasionally committed acts that were uncharacteristically cruel. Even in Jerry's young age, his rivalry with Tom (as a kitten) stayed the same, as seen in the early 1990's show Tom and Jerry Kids. The popular interpretation of Jerry as a villain has famously been parodied on The Simpsons by Itchy.
