Jeannie on the Phone

This article is about the "Tom and Jerry" character. For the TV series starring Julie McWhirter, see Jeannie.

Jeannie is an average teenager who spends much of her time talking on the phone to school friends about their dates and her own activities. Jeannie is the baby sitter of George and Joan's baby, and they often call on her to look after the baby if they're going out. Jeannie proceeds to leap straight onto the phone just as George and Joan shut the front door, which tells us that she is very negligent about her job. Despite this, Jeannie is very kind, friendly, cheerful and rarely loses a smile--except to scold Tom for "bothering the baby," which she thinks he is doing on purpose to annoy her.

Jeannie was seen in only two cartoons, "Busy Buddies" and "Tot Watchers".


Jeannie (voice of Janet Waldo) is a fair-skinned blonde with hair tied back into a ponytail with a blue bow with her bangs hanging down. She also wears a pink blouse with a burgundy skirt and black slip-on shoes. Jeannie's also not a very good baby sitter, because while the baby's parents are out, she regularly relies on the telephone rather than doing her actual baby-sitting, and Tom and Jerry are shown to be better baby sitters than she is.

When the baby crawls out of his bed in "Busy Buddies" and "Tot Watchers", Tom and Jerry both do their best to bring him back home and put him in bed, but Jeannie claims that the two were bothering the baby, and she attacks Tom with a broom.


Despite her sub-standard baby-sitting skills, Jeannie is very kind and friendly and has many friends in high school. Her least favorite and weakest subject is apparently algebra, but she wants to do well in that particular class. In her final appearance, she eventually called the police so they can arrest Tom and Jerry whom they both claim to be "babynappers," until it was discovered that the baby started crawling out of the house, where she could eventually take the blame or not.


Jeannie has many friends from high school, but only mentioned during dialogue on the telephone. Her friends include Mike, Gary, Jan.
