Why Tom and Jerry is so Popular?
Tom and Jerry both share a kind of love and hate relationship. Though they seem to bother each other when they get the opportunity to do so, yet the truth is none of them can stay without seeing each other. Perhaps, the way they fight and make fun of each other or try to fool each other is the only way they can express love for each other or perhaps this is the only entertain they can imagine of. Sometimes I wonder perhaps both the character-Tom and Jerry-are virtually reflection of two sides of a man/woman, who lives in everyone’s heart.
