I was a writer on The TOM AND JERRY KIDS SHOW for the entire duration of the series.
Being an artist, when I created a character for a cartoon sometimes I would also sketch a rough design and the producer would use it. Two of the characters even starred in a couple of their own cartoons.
Here are are few examples.
