This week we dive into MGM's flagship series, Tom & Jerry, the sassiest, brassiest cartoons made in Hollywood's Golden Age. We take a look at industry heavyweights Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera (and their team of animators) and what made a seemingly hack concept of cat-and-mouse so unmatched for so long in this exploration of "visual nonsense".
