These animated shorts are products of their time. Some of them may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros. view of today's society, these animated shorts are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Cartoons may come and go – but the chase is eternal, just like the evergreen appeal of animation's supreme cat-and-mouse team! This Second Volume of Tom and Jerry's cartoon capers boasts 20 restored and remastered shorts (including 1947’s “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Mouse,” which was nominated for an Academy Award®). This rip-roaring collection covers their golden years from 1941 to 1958 – in addition to “Tot Watchers,” which was the final Tom and Jerry cartoon produced at the MGM Cartoon Studios before they shut down forever in 1957.
