Tom & Jerry Kids, also known as Tom & Jerry Kids Show, is an American animated slapstick comedy TV series produced by Hanna-Barbera for Fox's Saturday morning block, Fox Kids. It ran from 1990 to 1993, airing 65 episodes that spanned four seasons. It is the third Tom and Jerry series after The Tom & Jerry Show, itself a spin-off of MGM's Tom and Jerry theatrical shorts. A spin-off, Droopy, Master Detective, was produced in 1993.

The main segments of the show follow the same cat and mouse antics of Tom and Jerry, with the added twist of reimagining the duo as toddlers. Unlike the previous Tom & Jerry Show (which depicted them as a working group of friends), the segments return to the pair's relationship as rivals, with Tom and Jerry pitting against each other in an almost violent battle of wits.

There are two other prominent segments (among several other minor ones), including Spike & Tyke, two supporting characters from the aforementioned shorts, and Droopy & Dripple, a spin-off from MGM's Droopy theatrical shorts.

Out of the minor segments, there were two based on the Blast-Off Buzzard segments in CB Bears in 1977.





For the first season, the score was composed by Tom Worrall, and then Gary Lionelli joined him for the next three seasons. Bodie Chandler was director of music production.

Opening theme song lyrics

It's the Tom and Jerry Kids!
Gotta be there where all the action is
Tom and Jerry Kids
The Tom and Jerry Kids new show!

Big tail, little tail chasing all around.
The cat and mouse game that never lets you down.

Well there's Spike and Tyke,
Droopy and Dripple.
Come on and have some fun, it's oh so simple.

I'm talking 'bout the Tom and Jerry Kids.
Just come and be where all the action is.
Tom and Jerry Kids.
The Tom and Jerry kids...

The Tom and Jerry Kids new show!
