NewKidCo International, Inc. was a video game company founded in 1997 in Burlington, Massachusetts, and got defunct in 2005. It was best known for making kids video games based on licensed properties.

Why They And Their Games Sucked

  1. Poor quality graphics.
  2. The only game that was released for the sixth generation consoles was Tom & Jerry: War of the Whiskers.
    • Now, keep in mind that NewKidCo was originally going to release more games on sixth generation consoles such as E.T.: Search for Dragora and Little League Baseball 2002. But sadly, they ended up being cancelled for reasons unknown.
  3. They ruined the E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial and Tom and Jerry franchises, amongst others.
  4. Their games were mostly mediocre, or possibly bland at best, and abysmal at worst.
  5. This company has rushed some of their games to meet certain deadlines. Sound familiar?
    • Speaking of rushed development, they even rushed a few Dr. Seuss titles like The Cat In The Hat and Green Eggs & Ham.
  6. To make matters worse, they've licensed their games to companies such as Nintendo and Sony, onto their consoles/systems, and half of their games they've added to their systems turned out to be horrible.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. They published some good games, for example: Tigger's Honey Hunt, Tom and Jerry in Mouse Attacks, Tom and Jerry: Fists of Furry, Goofy's Fun House or Tom & Jerry: War of the Whiskers.

This is ironic as I actually live in Massachusetts.

Tom and Jerry: War of the Whiskers seems to be the best game they made, as kids game YouTube channels still make videos out of fights from the games, mostly including Monster Jerry

"The only game that was released for the sixth generation consoles was Tom & Jerry: War of the Whiskers, and possibly the worst Tom & Jerry game ever to date."

Really? I always thought that game was good. Oh well. To each their own, I guess.

Well, Tom & Jerry: War of the Whistkers is pretty good, that it earned a page on AGW.
