Does Anyone Else Think That The Mouse From "Tom And Jerry" Was Actually The Asshole?

He was kiiind of a little fucker, wasn't he?

Posted on

Anyone who grew up watching Tom and Jerry should take a pause and think long and hard about this question: was the poor little persecuted mouse REALLY the hero?

Like, just think about it for a minute.

Because I hate to break it to you, but Jerry was actually a little shit.

Exhibit A: In this episode, Spike the bulldog threatened to beat Tom up if his freshly bathed pup got dirty. So Jerry then spends the rest of the episode playing tricks and doing everything he can to get the little pup dirty and Tom in trouble.

Like damn!!! Tom was just trying to be a good babysitter, y'all!

Exhibit B: Sure, for most of the show, Tom was always trying to catch Jerry, and Jerry would defend himself. But sometimes, he enjoyed himself a little too much.

Especially when the tables turned and he was in position to beat Tom up, which he had way too much fun doing.

Seriously. Look at this little fucker's sadistic little face.

I don't trust it.

I don't trust it.

Plus, if Jerry is so scared of Tom, then why is he getting himself in dangerous situations like this?

^Exhibit C: Honestly, he was baiting that poor cat.

Dude clearly just likes to incite chaos unnecessarily, IMO.

It wasn't just a question of survival.

He's always out there, provoking Tom and pushing all of his buttons.

Doesn't have have any other hobbies??

And so often, Jerry just goes way overboard on the revenge tactics.

He's fuckin' cold, yo.

Plus, Jerry always had to get other people involved in his messes.

Like, dude did not have to involve that poor hen who's just tryna hatch some eggs.

I'm just saying, guys: Just because one of the animals always comes out on top doesn't mean he's the good guy.

There are good guys, there are bad guys, and sometimes, there are just scheming little shits.
