Tom the cat and Jerry the mouse. The two characters bring memories to most of us. Memories of those summer vacations - when cousins would visit and all of us would watch these cartoons together. Memories of pleading Mom - to let you watch half an hour of this show while the exams are on. Memories of sheer fun you have when something very unrealistic happens - a heavy rock falls on Tom and he gets flattened to a disk.
We have 3-D animation today. And numerous other technologies I am unaware of. But do they have the innocence of Tom and Jerry?
