Tom Cat


Tom Cat

Thomas "Tom" Cat is a fictional character and half of the academy-award winning "Tom & Jerry" cartoon cat-and-mouse duo. He is a blue/grey anthropomorphic cat who first appeared in the 1940 animated short "Puss Gets the Boot". Tom was originally known as "Jasper" during his debut appearance in that short, however, beginning from his next appearance in "The Midnight Snack" and onwards, his is known as "Tom". Unlike popular belief, "Jasper" is not his last name. His full name "Tom Cat" is a pun of "tomcat", which is the phrase which refers to male cats. He is very rarely heard speaking with the exception of a few cartoons (such as Tom & Jerry Tales' League of Cats) and "Tom and Jerry: The Movie" He is continuously after Jerry Mouse, for whom he sets traps, many of which backfire and cause damage to him rather than Jerry. Tom rarely sets out to eat Jerry, only to hurt or compete with him.
