During the World Wars, the British soldiers were affectionately known as Tommy, while the German Hun were known as Jerry.
And yet, in February 1940, before the US entered WWII, MGM released their first in a series of cartoons starring Tom Cat and Jerry Mouse, battling each other for supremacy of the home and refridgerator.
And who always wins? Jerry fucking mouse does, that's who.
What does that tell you about the Amercian attitude to the British eh?

Other the other had, Tom is much funnier. Unlike Jerry, he occasionally talks and gets to do funny voices. He also gets to sing, e.g. "Is you is or is you ain't my baby".
Is you is or is you ain't my baby?
The way you're actin' lately makes me doubt
Yous is still my baby-baby
Seems my flame in your heart's done gone out
A woman is a creature that has always been strange
Just when you're sure of one
You find she's gone and made a change
Is you is or is you ain't my baby
Maybe baby's found somebody new
Or is my baby still my baby true?
