Tom and Jerry are two of the staples of American animation. The Hanna-Barbera cat-and-mouse rivals were mainstays on TV from the 1940s through the 1950s, and the stars of dozens of animated shorts, TV shows, films, and more. And finally, they’ll be entering the real world with the upcoming hybrid animated film Tom & Jerry. But they’ll look, for the most part, exactly the same as we remember from those hand-drawn slapstick short skits. That’s because director Tim Story (Shaft) insisted on retaining Tom and Jerry’s 2D looks, even as they enter the 3D world. Watch the Tom & Jerry featurette about the design of the titular cat and mouse, below.
