Jerry Mouse is the main character of the Tom and Jerry animated franchise, playing the hero protagonist, although he hasn't been entirely innocent throughout. Jerry was introduced as a character in a theatrical short series, with his first appearance in Puss Gets the Boot, and subsequently appeared in other media, such as TV series and direct-to-video films. Jerry is a mostly silent character, who was originally performed by William Hanna, whose vocalization is still in use today long after his passing. His most memorable speaking role occurred in Tom and Jerry: The Movie, in which his voice came out from actress Dana Hill's.

He has to constantly watch out for Tom Cat, who as one might expect, wants to get rid of Jerry, although sometimes it appears to be more about the thrill of the chase. Despite this, Jerry appears to live life fairly easily.

Character description

Whereas his frenemy Tom is both a cunning and aggressive instigator, Jerry is different, in that he is more of a carefree trickster. The mouse is generally excited, free-spirited, and almost child-like. He also seeks to have fun no matter who he harms, much to the annoyance of Tom in several occasions.

Jerry is a brown mouse, whose color tone varies depending on his appearances. He also has large ears on his head, a proportionally sized tail, four whiskers on his nose and a small tuft on his head facing forward.

He rarely speaks, relying on a range of vocal effects to express his emotions. Many of these are usually made up of high pitched yells and screams.
