Tom & Jerry had a host of friends. The most notable ones were Spike, Tyke, Mammy Two Shoes, Toodles Galore, Tuff Mouse (Nibbles) and Butch Cat. Below, we will take a closer look at each of these characters in more depth. Let’s begin with Spike and Tyke.
Spike and Tyke
Spike didn't talk much in the show's earlier episodes. This would later change. He would be given more of a voice later in the series. Tyke was added to the show after Spike. He was added in the latter part of the 1940s. The show's creators did so because they wanted to make Spike a little nicer. The two, Spike and Tyke, were eventually, given a show of their own. It wouldn't, however, last very long.
When Spike would go after Tom after he was disrupted with he and Jerry's usual shenanigans, even when Jerry was at fault, Jerry would often come to the rescue, distracting Spike so that Tom could escape.
Butch and Toodles Galore
Toodles Galore was a beautiful, white cat who Tom had a romantic relationship with. However, Toodles and Butch would eventually marry, breaking Tom's heart in the process.
Mammy Two Shoes
Aside from one episode, the audience never got to see Manny Two Shoe’s face. This is true of most of the human characters which made an appearances on the show. The Mammy character survived until 1952 when it was cut out of the show, after the character’s real-life inspiration, Hattie McDaniel passed away.
