Toodles Galore is a Tom and Jerry character, who first appeared in the 1946 short, Springtime for Thomas. Toodles is an attractive female, white cat, and is supposedly Tom's usual love interest. Although Tom is a reputed playboy, and had other love interests before and after Toodles. Toodles is the only love interest who appeared more than thrice, and is probably the most favored. During the classic era, Tom had to compete twice against Butch and even once against Spike/Killer for Toodles' affection, and he lost them all. Toodles is one of the most anthropomorphic animals in the series, with the only cat features being her tail, nose and ears.

Toodles is apparently open to any form of romantic relationships, even with non-cats, as shown in the end of Casanova Cat where Jerry got to make out with Toodles as they left Tom and Butch behind, and Solid Serenade, where she is clearly interested in a relationship with Spike the bulldog, who tries to woo her by playing with Tom's tail on a double bass.

It is said that Lana Turner's character Bunny Smith, from the film Week-End at the Waldorf, was the inspiration for Toodles' character and personality.[1]


She is a female white cat who is Tom and Butch's love interest. Tom and Butch are always fighting for her attractions. While Tom mostly loses the battle for her affections, her final episode ends with herself and Tom retaining a rather blossoming relationship, while Jerry and his "devil" mouse each fall for their own loves.
