Tom and Jerry should be changed
« on: January 27, 2019, 12:32:10 PM »
Warner Bros has been really wasting these characters with pointless crossover movies or cartoons trying to relive the 1940's Tom and Jerry style. it does not help how they have to keep Tom and Jerry the same all the time with the whole cat chases mouse idea. It would be nice if they reinvented the series with the cast reimagined and give them voices to talk to eachother, also give them more personality.

It would be fresh if Tom and Jerry had a cartoon more similar to shows such as Regular show, Adventure Time, Beavis and Butt-Head, or Invader Zim.

    Some change might be alright, but they should stay pretty much silent. Just the cat vs. mouse thing can get pretty repetitive. Maybe some outsider character coming into the house that makes T & J have to join forces.
   Disney has done some new Mickey Mouse shorts like you describe that turned out awful. Changing something classic just for the sake of change instead of a clear idea about a new direction seldom works out well.
'cause justice is the one thing you should always find.

They don't need to change the formula because the OG Tom and Jerry shorts are still great.

I think everything that can be done with those two characters was done a long time ago. I guess they could go your route if they really wanted to do something with the property, but really why not just create new characters?

There was a Tom and Jerry movie back in, I think, the 90's where they had a cross country adventure or something.  It wasn't good.  The cat and mouse formula is all that works for them.

and don't have them talk, unless it's Tom screaming in pain or that thing where he's lip-syncing to someone else. they tried having them talk. it was not good.

This is one of your worse ideas.

That would be a funny little parody if it happened for a short.

And psychotic.

But yeah, the "silent" formula is a big part of why the shorts/characters are so huge abroad (and they are) - anyone can jump right in and watch.

Forgive my ignorance but is there really a demand for Tom and Jerry still?

Demand is a strong word but they are still around.
