News for January 26, 2004.
I was going through some files on my computer and happened upon some Tom and Jerry pictures that I had forgotten about. I plan on adding them to the site shortly. I'm not going to give an exact date since for the next week my life is more complicated than normal. :-]
Needless to say it will be in the next couple of weeks..possibly during the early days of February. With this update I plan on fixing some issues that I discovered with the picture gallery. I think I'm going to set it up to display the latest additions first and the oldest pictures last.
I still haven't heard anything new about DVD box set from Warner Brothers.
By the way, if anyone has any information regarding Tom and Jerry kids, specifically episode guide, please email me. I am aware of the guide at tvtome.com and bcdb.com but there is no synopsis and I'm not familiar enough with that series to put up any information about. So if you have anything about Tom and Jerry Kids, please let me know.
