Tom and Jerry Works is a Tom and Jerry american spin-off airing on Cartoon Network in August 10, 1999, and on The WB in April 29, 1999. It is similar to Mickey Mouse Works. Reruns of the show air on Boomerang as of today.
The show was created to recreate the golden age of MGM's classic Tom and Jerry shorts which star the famous cat-and-mouse duo and reintroducing recurring characters from the original series. This is also the second Tom &Jerry media to have Tom and Jerry regularly speak, after Tom and Jerry: The Movie 8 years ago. Each episode is composed of three 5-7 minute cartoons. Some cartoons are remakes from the classic T&J cartoons.
After the intro sequence and before the episode, a spotlight-stealing Butch would try to cover up the show's logo with a sign that reads "Starring Butch", but an accident would rid the sign and cause harm to Butch.
