Why Tom & Jerry don't talk? (although other characters do)

Our Answer:
Let me find out.

THE Answer:
Have NOT found the answer yet.
This is probably the infamous first question which we can't find an answer for.

We have searched online for a clue or an explanation but nothing.

We know that in the first or second episodes the actually say a few words and in later episodes they mumble sounds, but no speak for the most cases.
The intriguing part is that other characters speak, either humans or animals.
what was the decision behind keeping the main characters mute?

In any case its an interesting question that had never come up in my mind until Ander asked last weekend.

We knew there would be one question one day that would challenge this site. This is that question. Any light that would help find an answer would be appreciate it.


  1. That is simple:
    Bcause they don't have anything smart to say...
    Te conclusion, my dear boy, if you don't have a smart question to ask, just shut up...

    works for me...

  2. i believe it is a trial to appeal to every language without the need for any translation or dubbing. this makes tom & jerry universals.
