Outside the United States[edit]

The section on Tom and Jerry in the UK smacks of nostalgia and original research. The BBC did not "invariably" show Tom and Jerry during programme interruptions. Many other types of material were shown at such times, and I don't personally recall Tom and Jerry having any sort of special default status. And while the show was certainly familiar to British viewers of that time, the BBC did not show "around two episodes every evening." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 90.203.87.114 (talk) 00:11, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

Trivia[edit]

I think trivia should be added to articles and I don't think it's unsourced. YoshiFan155 (talk) 05:35, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

@YoshiFan155: No, per Wikipedia guidelines trivia sections should be avoided. What do you mean by "don't think it's unsourced"? Either there is a reliable source or there isn't, and there are no sources for (for instance) this and this.
Also note that Wikipedia is not an indiscriminate list of information. Every random fact does not belong in Wikipedia. Trivia such as goofs and minor facts might perhaps belong in the Tom and Jerry wiki instead. --bonadea contributions talk 07:33, 19 July 2016 (UTC)https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Tom_and_Jerry/Archive_1&action=edit#
YoshiFan155 needs to respond to the sockpuppet investigation notice on their talk page. This unsourced original research that they have added repeatedly through several accounts is not acceptable. - SummerPhDv2.0 11:11, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
