    An Artist Recreated Tom’s Fails From “Tom And Jerry” As Hilarious Sculptures

    Spoiler alert: Tom gets hurt.

    You all know Tom and Jerry, the famous cat and mouse cartoon where one of them (usually Tom) ends up in a lot of pain.

    These sculptures come from Taku Inoue, a Tokyo based director of games, movies and commercials.

    And as a hobby Taku creates these hilarious sculptures based on Tom's painful failures.

    "A lot of people have seen (my sculptures) and I'm very surprised," Taku told BuzzFeed. "Tom and Jerry had a big impact on my childhood, it's influential to my creative work."

    It's amazing to see what was originally hand-drawn made into a hand-made sculpture.

    And just like the cartoon, Tom's misfortune equals our laughter.

    And for those unfamiliar with the cartoon, (looking at you Gen-Z'ers) luck has very rarely been on Tom's side.

    "I'm very happy to see new Tom and Jerry fans created as a result of my work! Thank you Hanna-Barbera!"
