MANILA – Philippine Airlines has joined hands with Warner Bros. Consumer Products by enlisting the world’s most famous cat-and-mouse duo, Tom and Jerry, to appear on PAL’s “Junior Jetsetter” kits this year.
The beloved cartoon characters continue their endless chase to delight kids onboard PAL’s long-haul flights.
The activity kits are provided to children from 2 to 11 years old to keep them entertained on PAL flights to North America and Australia. These include services between Manila and San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Vancouver, Honolulu, Sydney and Melbourne.
The kits are available in two variants, each for outbound and inbound Manila flights. The outbound kit consists of a yellow and orange drawstring bag that doubles as a carrying case, a 20-page activity/coloring book with mini colored pencils, a plastic stencil set, Rubik’s Cube key chain, and a sticker sheet.
The inbound kit includes a light blue and orange drawstring bag-cum-carrying case, a 20-page activity/coloring book with a box of crayons, coloring puzzle, camera view finder, and a silicone bracelet.
Tom and Jerry, created by legendary animators William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, first appeared in 1940. Through the decades, the series has developed a deeply dedicated fan base of both kids and adults throughout the world, receiving 13 Academy Award nominations for Best Short Subject: Cartoons and winning the Oscar seven times.
Tom and Jerry has the honor of being the most-awarded animated series in history and is widely considered to be one of the best animated cartoon series ever created.
The cartoon’s popularity derives from its main characters’ infectious, everyday humor, the natural playfulness and tension between cat and mouse, the “thrill of the chase,” and ultimately the triumph of the “little guy.”
Tom and Jerry are fitting mascots to banner PAL’s Junior Jetsetter kits for the flag carrier’s well-traveled little passengers.
