Tom-and-Jerry history article
Article Surfer
<— Prev    |    Next —>

All told, the animated cartoon series "Tom and Jerry" would be awarded seven (7) Academy Awards before Oscar's attention turned elsewhere.

This 1946 article sings the praises of Fred Quimby (1886 1965), the animation producer who ran the shop at the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer cartoon studio between the years 1937 and 1954:

"Doff the cap to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's Fred Quimby, producer of "Tom and Jerry', the only cartoon stars to have copped the coveted Oscar for two consecutive years. Even the distinguished Donald Duck has only been Oscarized once."

"'Tom and Jerry' reflect in broad comedy the faults and foibles of human beings, even as you and I. Here we have a thoroughly egotistical cat and a very shrewd mouse... a cartoon representation of the eternal conflict between HERO and VILLAIN. Toma always hopes to outwit Jerry who symbolizes the underdogs of the world."
