Hollywood Hijinx Strikes Again...

Warner Bros. has decided to make a live action/CGI movie of the classic cartoons Tom & Jerry. They plan to give them an origin story for how they met and became rivals, then reluctantly have to work together on a long journey home. [Oh, and something about Chicago.]

I’m for creating stories…I mean, yeah.

But… really? (Make sure to hear the deprecating upward tone)
It’s a cat and mouse. Classic cliché comic capers. Origin story? REALLY?
(Not to mention that in the cartoons they have lived in several houses with quite a few “masters of the house.” This fact alone should pull the plug on their idea. Plus, Tom & Jerry working together never worked in the cartoons.)

Tom & Jerry is one of my favorites, too.
