Tom and Jerry are bringing their adventures to Singapore. The first ever localised Tom and Jerry series, featuring the beloved cartoon cat and mouse in the Lion City, will premiere on Cartoon Network (Astro Ch 615 / Unifi TV 556), the Cartoon Network Asia YouTube channel, and HBO GO from Saturday, October 21.
In the seven-part series, the legendary cartoon frenemies take their adventures to the Lion City as they weave through the labyrinth of colourful neighbourhoods, modern skyscrapers and luscious city-in-nature experiences. New episodes air every Saturday on Cartoon Network and YouTube, with four episodes immediately available on HBO GO followed by a second episode drop in November.
Christopher Ho, Head of Kids – Southeast Asia, Warner Bros. Discovery, said: “It was important for us to create stories and environments that feel authentically ‘Singapore’ – and at the same time honour the distinct animation style and sense of humour that has made Tom and Jerry so well loved for generations. Catch their antics as they experience local delicacies durian and ice kacang, and encounter Merli – a character inspired by Singapore’s mythical Merlion – in iconic locations like the Botanic Gardens, Sentosa and Marina Bay.”
Tom and Jerry is one of the leading animation properties in Warner Bros. Discovery’s franchise portfolio with a global social reach of 50 million and almost 30 billion minutes watched on the Warner Bros. Kids YouTube channel. There have been more than 500 episodes and 15 movies made so far in its 83-year history, securing seven Academy Awards along the way.
This new series is part of a wider partnership between Warner Bros. Discovery and Singapore Tourism Board to collaborate on content that will spotlight and inspire travel to destination Singapore.
