These include Hatch Up Your Troubles, which features a baby woodpecker who thinks Jerry is his mother and Jerry’s Cousin, which has Jerry summon the help of his cousin, aptly named Muscles, to show him how to defend himself against Tom.

Other featured cartoons include, Just Ducky, in which Jerry teaches Quacker, a darling baby duckling, how to swim and Smitten Kitten, which features Tom, who falls head over heels for a beautiful feline, prompting his losing all interest in chasing after Jerry.  The tussling twosome conduct an orchestra in Tom and Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl. In Saturday Evening Puss, Jerry’s beauty sleep is interrupted when Tom invites his buddies over for a party that includes plenty of loud music. In Tennis Chumps, all sorts of bad things happen to Tom; his racket catches fire, he becomes tangled in the net and swallows a bunch of tennis balls before he loses the match to Jerry, who wins a trophy.

Originally created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, Tom and Jerry centers on the never-ending rivalry between Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse. The plots of each short usually center on Tom’s attempts to capture Jerry. Jerry however, is clever and quick on his feet so Tom hardly ever manages to catch him. The original series is notable for having won the Academy Award® for Best Short Subject: Cartoon seven times.

“Our goal was to bring these legendary classics fully restored to their original beauty through today’s technology,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Vice President Family & Animation Marketing and Partner Brands. She added, “If you want to experience these cartoons the way moviegoers originally did decades ago, uncut and unedited, Tom and Jerry The Golden Collection Volume 2 is a must-own DVD.”
