Classic Cartoon “Tom & Jerry” to Get Kawaii Anime Revamp in Japan

While American TV cartoons aren’t exactly popular in Japan outside of standard Disney films, it was recently announced that the classic American cartoon Tom & Jerry will be receiving a new Japan-made revamped series, although with some large changes.

Original promotional art for the series, featuring new looks for the classic characters.

The new series features a much softer pastel art style and color scheme, opting for a much cuter anime appearance than that of it’s Western counterpart. The series also seems to be keeping away from the high-action and wild violence of the original, opting instead to focus more on the dynamic and high-speed nature of the two’s friendship.

That isn’t where the changes stop, however. In this new version, Tom and Jerry can transform into various sweets such as candy, and are joined by a new character not seen in the original named Tuffy.

The show will begin airing on Cartoon Network Japan on November 11th during it’s own special Tom & Jerry premiere block. For those who want to see a Japanese twist on the beloved classic cartoon, you won’t want to miss the premiere!
