Nothing succeeds like failure. Seventy-four years after they first hit movie screens, Tom the cat is still trying to exterminate Jerry the mouse — without any luck. The slapstick duo is back in The Tom and Jerry Show, a new series that "captures all the silliness and joy I felt when I watched as a kid," says Seinfeld vet Jason Alexander, who provides the voice of Tom's ever-frazzled owner, Ric. "You'd think there'd be only so many ways for this cat and mouse to take a pratfall or fly off a cliff, but they're still finding ways to keep it fresh."read more
Seinfeld's Jerry and George reunited for one of the Super Bowl's best commercials — and there's more where that came from.
In the 90-second spot, Jerry (Jerry Seinfeld) meets up with George (Jason Alexander) for coffee at their favorite haunt, Tom's Restaurant. The two waste no time before they start bickering about nothing, and even Newman (Wayne Knight) stops by. The scene, however, is just a segment from Seinfeld's Crackle web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
In a statement to The New York Times, Seinfeld explained how the reunion happened.

"So we thought throwing Jerry, George and Newman into a Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee was a fun way to do it. Larry and I wrote the script in one sitting, just like old times, and working with him, Jason and Wayne was a total blast, as it always was."
