Cartoon~Tom And Jerry~Jungle Jam
Parrot Jungle- Mickey Dread & King Tubby
The characters were a Mutt and Jeff-like pair, one short (Jerry) and one tall (Tom). Each cartoon featured a different adventure and the plot varied from film to film. Sometimes they were lawyers, hunters, plumbers, hobos, etc. The duo were likely named after the stage play and/or the mixed drink of the same name, both of which predated the duo by a century. Stylistically, the cartoons were similar to those made by Fleischer Studios, which like Van Beuren Studios was located in New York City. According to Markstein’s Toonopedia, Fleischer staff sometimes moonlighted at Van Beuren’s, which was situated just across the road (accounting for the many visual similarities between the two). Tom and Jerry’s adventures were generally absurdist comedies, featuring bizarre imagery, racist themes, and more than a few (minor) sexual references. One 1932 short (Piano Tooners) introduced a “flapper” character clearly[weasel words] derived from Fleischer’s Betty Boop, further demonstrating the stylistic relationship between the two studios. Tom and Jerry, however, did not obtain popularity of the type Mickey Mouse, Betty Boop, and Bosko had, and the series was cancelled in 1933.
