Today’s date July 19 is very special for Tom and Jerry, who have a special place in everyone’s memories, because today is their birthday. Tom and Jerry, who have been laughing at their mischief for years, are now 79 years old. He first appeared on a show called Midnight Snack on 19 July 1941.
However, they both had a different name in the show. Their creators William Hanna and Joseph Barbara then introduced Tom as Jasper and did not name Jerry at all. However, Jerry was later named Jinks. Meaning this pair of ‘Tom and Jerry’ first came to the world in the name of ‘Jasper and Jinks’. Later their names were changed to Tom and Jerry. There is also an interesting story behind their naming.
