Tom and Jerry turns 70


Can anyone honestly tell that you ever got bored while watching these cute little fellows?
Can anyone of you argue it is a kids-only show?
Does anyone of you ever dared to switch off the television while your kids or your aged parents watching the show?

I am pretty sure none of you can answer YES to the above questions:-)

What an amazing creation. Let’s Thank William Hanna and Joseph Barbera for making millions of people laugh and thereby live happily and peacefully. And their creation continue to entertain and educate us in different forms for the last 70 years to this very day. This laugh riot, for sure will continue forever for the simple reason; they are raw and core extracts of life.

The house cat Tom and the all-mischievous Jerry is always pleasure watching.

The best part is they stay the same and never get old. This maybe because they do laugh and make others laugh all these days. They live in a world without humans and therefore even violence turns out to be fun, they become friends at times, join hands to fight a common enemy and they never hurt each other with the intention to kill.

After all these years, apart from laughing, why we failed to learn a lesson or two from these violent, ever-fighting yet peace-loving ‘friends’?

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
