Tom and Jerry in New York is a 2021 American animated slapstick comedy TV series produced by Warner Animation (WBA), Cartoon Network Studios, and Renegade Animation for the HBO Max VSOD service. It is the sixth Tom and Jerry series after Hanna-Barbera's The Tom & Jerry Show.

Acting as a spin-off to the live-action/animated film Tom & Jerry, Tom & Jerry continue to live at the Royal Gate Hotel, unleashing mayhem for other residents of not only the hotel but for the rest of New York.

As it happens, the Royal Gate Hotel is the only connection to the movie, and for all intent and purposes, acts more like a direct sequel to the fifth series, The Tom and Jerry Show, which began in 2014 and ended in 2021, just a few months before Tom and Jerry in New York began.

Production

Development

On October 29, 2019, during WarnerMedia's demo presentation of HBO Max's home page, half of an image of the series was glimpsed as one of their Max Originals.[1] On May 28, 2020, the day after HBO Max's launch, WarnerMedia posted a video on Twitter previewing what was to come with the title of Tom and Jerry in the Big City flashing up.[2]

On June 10, 2021, WarnerMedia finally made an official announcement, confirming that it would be a continuation (or at the very least be inspired by) the aforementioned film, that Darrell Van Citters and Ashley Postelwaite of Renegade Animation were producing, with Citters also directing (as they had done on The Tom and Jerry Show), and President of WBA producing Sam Register executive producing.[3]

A trailer was released on June 17, 2021.

Music

The music was composed by Dan Blessinger, Jim Covell, and Ithamar Ben Zimra. The theme music was performed by Blessinger and Covell, adapted from lyrics written by Scott Bradley, who worked on the original MGM theatrical shorts.
