This is the what one would call the Golden Age of Cartoons, I would call it more like the roots, the beginning, the Cartoon: Origins. Tom and Jerry are and always is on the same Top 10 Cartoons of all time for me, together with the other classics like Looney Tunes and Woody Woodpecker. But I still haven't decided if I would show this for my kids or any other kid because some episodes are kind outdated and need some explaining so kids understand that things were different during the 40s-60s and what we consider wrong today weren't consider in those days.

The words cult and classic doesn`t even begin to describe this. It´s amazing it premiered over 75 years ago. I have seen this so many times and it still makes me laugh every time. Although I feel for poor old Tom much more with every time I watch it. I prefer the original Hanna/Barbera cartoons. The later ones are OK but never quite reached the quality in terms of animation and script.

How to name these correct to get them synced properly to my collection? Should it be enough with S/E-ID? Even though I also have episode name too.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
