Tom and Jerry in the Midnight Snack

Hanna-Barbera (1941)

The Midnight Snack is a 1941 Tom and Jerry cartoon produced by Fred Quimby and directed by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, with musical supervision by Scott Bradley. It is the second cartoon in the series.

The Midnight Snack is a Tom and Jerry cartoon released on July 19, 1941. It is the second of the Tom and Jerry films, returning to the basic premise of the previous film, Puss Gets the Boot, following that cartoon’s Academy Awards nomination.

This cartoon featured the second appearance of Tom and Jerry, and was the first in which the characters were given their familiar names; the first cartoon, Puss Gets the Boot had the cat named Jasper and the mouse without a name, though animation model sheets referred to the latter as “Jinx”.
