Tom & Jerry Off Queen St West

Tom & Jerry cartoons were among my favourites while growing up so I was pleased to discover this mural of the 2 of them along the famous graffiti alley off Queen St West. The mural was painted by the artist known as Smug on the back of a cheese store which seems quite appropriate for this one!
Taking part in Monday Murals. For more murals click here.

This is hilarious. Love the connection to the cheese shop. And the fact that Jerry continues to get the best of Tom. There is so much creative energy in mural and street art. Thank you for contributing to this week's Monday Mural, Pat.

Hysterical, they were always one of my favorites too. Love this and knowing it is on the back of a cheese shop makes it even more adorable.

Fantastic, can't beat Tom & Jerry!

This is cute graffiti at least! :)

Cute mural; doubly so for a cheese shop. I see a lot of licensed cartoon characters on kindergarten (outside) walls and fences here in China... and have wondered about the IPR violation; not that I can see anyone bothering to come over to ask for removal.

Now that is what all graffiti should be like. Banksy in the UK has nothing on this.

Tom and Jerry were the best!
