Tom and Jerry will bring their famous cat-and-mouse rivalry to various iconic Singapore landmarks in their first locally adapted series. The series consists of seven episodes, each lasting three minutes, and is set to debut on Cartoon Network in the Asia-Pacific region and HBO Go in Southeast  Asia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong in late 2023. After its initial release, it will be made available internationally. The pilot episode is scheduled to be released in August.

Viewers can look forward to witnessing familiar Singaporean sights, such as the Merlion and Marina Bay Sands, as Tom and Jerry engage in their classic chase through the city streets. The show was produced in Asia in collaboration with Warner Bros Animation. The storytelling and designs were undertaken by two Singapore-based animation studios, Robot Playground Media and Chips and Toon, while India's Aum Animation Studios handled the animation process.

Christopher Ho, Warner Bros Discovery's head of kids' content for Southeast Asia, mentioned that this series successfully revives the iconic music and classic animation style from the 1950s Hanna-Barbera era, but with a contemporary Singaporean touch.

he series will consist of seven three-minute shorts featuring the classic cat-and-mouse duo, Tom and Jerry, engaging in their timeless game amidst the most recognizable landmarks in Singapore. This marks the first localized version of the intellectual property (IP), though it's worth noting that just last year, Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) released a series of adorable T&J shorts in Japan. However, the Japanese shorts retained the traditional Tom and Jerry universe while adopting a distinct kawaii/anime style. In contrast, the new Singapore episodes have been meticulously crafted to present uniquely Singaporean scenarios, a first-of-its-kind venture outside the U.S.

The series is being produced locally in Asia, but the exact production studio has not been clarified by WBD. A pilot episode is scheduled to premiere in August. Following its debut, the show will be aired on Cartoon Network in the Asia Pacific region and streamed on HBO Go in Southeast Asia, Taiwan, and Hong Kong later in the year, with plans for international distribution at a later stage.

Alongside the series, Warner Bros. Discovery plans to launch Tom and Jerry-branded consumer products later this year.
