"Carmen Get It!" Tom & Jerry Tom chases Jerry into the new Metropolitan Opera House in Lincoln Center, managing to get in under the guise of a musician as the orchestra begins playing the "Toreador's Song". The cat and mouse cause all kinds of commotion, including changing the music using ants pretending to be musical notes and scaring away the soprano as she prepares to sing the "Habanera".
Tom & Jerry (John Stephenson) The Tom & Jerry Show, ABC, 1975 Originally created to be shown before films, the cat-and-mouse chase was promoted to its own series. They’re not friends, but when it came down to it, they’re much closer than enemies. In some ways they were the archetype for many sitcom relationships—and, of course, that other famous duo, Itchy and Scratchy.
