Tom and Jerry first appeared under the names Jasper and Jinx, in the 1940 classic, “Puss Gets the Boot.” That same year, Puss Gets the Boot won an Academy Award for best short cartoon. The background was developed from the original Tom and Jerry model sheets.
A model sheet is a group of character drawings illustrating different poses and expressions of a cartoon character. Because a number of artists worked on a single cartoon, these sheets were circulated to the animators to give a uniform look and feel to a character throughout a production.
