汤姆杰瑞我爱你,就像老鼠爱大米


A LARGE grey cat with a cunning (狡猾的) sparkle in his yellow eyes, chases a small, sweet looking, brown mouse. In the madness that follows in the kitchen, they destroy the ice-box, ironing board (烫衣板), a sink full of dishes and litter the floor with broken eggs.

As the kitchen battle goes on, the final outcome is unknown to the participants. But to the audience who watch, there is little doubt as to the identity (身份) of the victor — it will be the little mouse.

For the cat and mouse are Tom and Jerry, and this, of course is a Tom & Jerry cartoon.

The ever-fighting pair have chased each other from Hollywood to China to outer space. Their movie debut was 64 years ago, but the cartoons still play on TV and on video.

They even came top in a poll (调查) of Britain's favourite cartoon characters.

The survey of 1,000 people aged between 18 and 50 was made in early October by a children's TV channel.

"Tom & Jerry series are incredibly inventive and witty (诙谐的) with an endless stream of gags (恶作剧), which is why they appeal to all ages," said the channel manager.

Born out of the film "Puss Gets the Boot" in 1940 in Hollywood, Tom and Jerry have made audiences laugh all around the world. Created by US animators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, the 161 cartoons have won seven Oscars.

The cartoon series came to China in the early 1990s and has been a hit ever since. "Although three words — cat chases mouse — are enough to describe the plot (剧情), Tom and Jerry is a lot more than that,'' said Zhang Ye, a Senior 1 girl from the Shi Jiazhuang Foreign Language School. "They are always doing new and crazy things to either catch or escape the other.''
