i always thought germans were called Krauts?
User avatar #231 to #218 - ACanadian ONLINE (01/20/2012) [-]
The Americans typically called them Krauts and Fritz, while it was more common for britfat and the Commonwealth countries to call them Jerries. I forget what the Russinas called them, if anything.

I googled and found this answer on yahoo answers further investigation said he was right so here you go. posted by Ziv Zulander: The names Tom and Jerry were literally pulled out of a hat. Tom was originally named Jasper while Jerry didn't have a name in their first cartoon which was called "Puss Gets the Boot". Their first short was a hit but MGM ordered William Hanna and Joseph Barbera to stop making the cartoon. A couple of years later a distributor approached MGM and asked them to make more cartoons starring the cat and mouse team. Hanna and Barbera needed new names for their characters so they decided to have a contest with their production crew. Everyone submitted a pair of names and then the winning combo was pulled out of a hat. John Carr received $50 for his winning selection. Perhaps John Carr selected the names based on your theory though.

so explain how the tommies beat the jerries in the first world war yet in the show jerry always gets the upper hand on tom

Only reason the Germans lost was because the United States finally stepped in and was able to slow the bleeding on the front and give the Allies the upper hand with fresh troops and supplies. The Germans were over extended and couldn't handle them selves against the sheer numbers of troops and tanks that the Americans gave. Although men on both sides died in droves.

Because the German army was clever, i think is the point.

i remember hearing on some radio talk show that the creators of the show were symbolizing racism. maybe the name-giving was like that, but i wonder if what i heard then is true either. i didnt really get it but why would they lie? i don't know what to believe anymore.
#202 to #193 - anonymous (01/16/2012) [-]
Is that from an actual episode?
User avatar #207 to #202 - salsaman (01/16/2012) [-]
