THE PURRR-SUIT CONTINUES WITH POPULAR CAT AND MOUSE DUO TOM AND JERRY IN TOM AND JERRY TALES: VOLUME 6 RELEASED FEBRUARY 3, 2009 FROM WARNER HOME VIDEO Single-Disc DVD Features 15 Cartoons from the Popular Kids’ WB Series BURBANK, CA (November 10, 2008) – Everyone’s favorite cat and mouse duo Tom and Jerry return to DVD in an all-new set of adventures on Tom and Jerry Tales: Volume 6, which will be released by Warner Home Video (WHV) February 3, 2009. The sixth volume of the hit Kids’ WB TV series will feature 15 action-packed cartoons showcasing Tom and Jerry’s latest adventures. This DVD set will retail for $14.97 SRP. In this volume of Tom and Jerry Tales, Tom and Jerry’s unending pursuit takes them around the world from Africa to Australia and on. The duo also learns some valuable lessons about history, including an episode where Tom inadvertently turns the Declaration of Independence into a paper airplane and an episode where Jerry has a role in the Wright Brothers first flight at Kitty Hawk. Tom and Jerry are also involved in a number of musical adventures that are anything but harmonious -- Jerry sabotages Tom’s efforts to win a Flamenco dance contest and Tom tries to avert his girlfriend’s attention from Jerry by singing the blues. Three very cool episodes on this DVD are entirely devoted to the theme of snow and ice. The duo confronts each other on a frozen pond where Jerry wants to skate but Tom plans to play hockey. Tom and Jerry also engage in an all-out snowball battle and later on, find themselves face-to-face with the giant abominable snowmouse. Tom and Jerry Tales: Volume 6 offers 15 animated shorts including Declaration of Independunce, Kitty Kawked, 24 Karat Kat, When the Snowing Gets Tough, The Abominable Snowmouse, Hockey Schtick, Kitty Cat Blues, Flamenco Fiasco, DJ Jerry, You’re Lion, Kangadoofus, Monkey Chow, Babysitting Blues, Catfish Folly, and Game of Mouse and Cat. Tom and Jerry Tales originally premiered on Kids’ WB in September 2006 and features characters from the classic Tom and Jerry cartoons in newly created shorts, which audiences have not seen done in 30 years. “Tom and Jerry is one of the greatest cartoons of all time,” commented Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation & Sports Marketing. He added, “The essence of the show has remained unchanged and that’s why it’s as successful today as it was decades ago. Tom and Jerry Tales maintains the same classic formula that has made this cartoon a success but places the characters in a contemporary setting, which is why the show continues to be a big hit with kids today.”
