Tom and Jerry, marketed as Tom and Jerry Special Shorts, is series of animated slapstick web TV shorts produced by Warner Bros. Animation for HBO Max. So far, only two (and likely all there is) have been released in 2021. It is the sixth Tom and Jerry series after Hanna-Barbera's The Tom & Jerry Show.
The new shorts try to emulate the animation style and humor of MGM's Tom and Jerry theatrical shorts which are about the literal cat and mouse game between eternal foes, Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse.
For the 80th anniversary of MGM's theatrical shorts, the same team who produced Looney Tunes Cartoons for HBO Max, also worked on Tom and Jerry Special Shorts in their spare time.
