Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer decided in early to close its cartoon studio, as it felt it had acquired a reasonable backlog of shorts for re-release, Hanna and Barbera, contemplating their future while completing the final Tom and Jerry cartoons, began producing animated TV commercials. During their last year at MGM, they developed a concept for an animated TV program about a dog, a coin toss determined that Hanna would have precedence in the naming the new studio.
Harry Cohn, president and head of Columbia Pictures, took an 18 percent ownership in Hanna and Barberas new company, H-B Enterprises, Screen Gems became the new studios distributor and its licensing agent, handling merchandizing of the characters from the animated programs.
Sidney and several Screen Gems alumni became members of the board of directors. H-B Enterprises was one of the first American cartoon studios to produce cartoons specifically for TV broadcast 2.

Various shorts have been released for home media since the s. The first feature-length film based on the series, Tom and Jerry, The Movie, was released inother controversial themes include cannibalism and the glamorization of smoking.
The series features comic fights between a set of adversaries, a house cat and a mouse.

However, there are several instances within the cartoons where they display genuine friendship.
The characters acquired their permanent names after an in-house contest held by MGM, with animator John Carr submitting the winning entry. Carr may have been inspired by the names of the two young tearaways in the 19th Century Life in London stories by Pierce Egan, or perhaps by the eggnog-like beverage known as "Tom and Jerry" itself named after Egan's charactersor possibly even by the earlier, human animated duo created by Van Beuren Studios for which Barbera worked at the dawn of his career in the '30s.
In any event, the Tom and Jerry series went on to become one of the most popular and successful of all time, with seven of its shorts winning Academy Awards. The only other theatrical animated series to win as many Oscars was Disney 's Silly Symphonies. Two years earlier, Chuck Jones had begun directing another series of theatrical Tom and Jerry shorts, taking over from Deitch and bringing production of the series back to Hollywood.
This was followed in the early s by Filmation 's version on CBS, which used the classic slapstick formula. From tothe CW network's animation block included Tom and Jerry Taleswhich continued with the slapstick humor of the theatrical shorts, as did a series of direct-to-video films.
Interestingly, since then it seems like Warner has been treating Tom and Jerry better than their own Looney Tunes probably due, in part, to the commercial bombing of Looney Tunes: Tom and Jerry has been the only classic cartoon series to air consistently on Cartoon Network.
Since acquiring the rights to Tom and Jerry, Warner has produced several direct-to-video movies - and Tom and Jerry Tales - which, for the most part, stay true to the classic Tom and Jerry form.
After which came the 's version of The Tom and Jerry Showwhich is made in Adobe Flash but otherwise continues the usual format of the series.
