Tom and Jerry Christmas



In November 1953, MGM Records came out with a kids tale, ‘Tom and Jerry Meet Santa Claus.’ As neither Tom or Jerry spoke, the label brought in a narrator—Bret Morrison, better known as The Shadow (after Orson Welles gave up voicing the character on radio). He narrated several children’s records featuring MGM’s cat and mouse, accompanied by the Leroy Holmes Orchestra. You can sure tell Scott Bradley didn’t do the score. Press the play arrow to hear it.









Tom and Jerry were intimately familiar with the Yuletide season, having starred in a Christmas cartoon in 1941.
