The Bull Fighters

The Bull Fighters - Toro strong

No Title
Ep No.

"The Bull Fighters" is the forty-four episode of The Tom and Jerry Show (1975).



On a visit to Mexico, Tom and Jerry save the life of Toro the Terrible, the fiercest bull in Mexico, and he promises to be their friend for life. He gives them free passes to see him fight in Tijuana that day, but as Tom and Jerry walk through the town later, another bull escapes from the stadium and chases them down the street. When Tom inadvertently traps El Rotteno in the back of a truck, he is hailed as a hero and invited to fight Toro in the bull ring. Knowing that Toro is his friend, Tom accepts the offer, and he and the friendly bull put on a fine show together. Unfortunately, Toro sprains his ankle and is replaced by El Rotteno, but Tom manages to subdue the ferocious animal, and he and Jerry are covered in sombreros thrown by the cheering crowd.


  • The bullfight sequence is one of 5 occasions on New Tom & Jerry in which Jerry appears without his red bow tie; others are "The Wacky World Of Sports," "Beach Bully," "The Supercape Caper" and "The Ski Bunny."
  • The bullfight sequence probably parallels Tom & Jerry's mock bullfight scene in the 1957 MGM T&J theatrical, Mucho Mouse.
  • El Rotteno's horns and hooves are a much darker gray than Toro's.
  • "The Bull Fighters" recycles 'bullring' underscore first used in a 1963 Flintstones episode.
