Straight from Warner Home Video's latest press release:

BURBANK, CA — Warner Home Video brings a new full-length animated adventure of the ever-popular cat and mouse duo Tom and Jerry to DVD July 06, 2013.
This time around our heroes have set out an unprecedented adventure that takes them to the depths of Bikini Bottom and discover a place that neither could fathom, even in their wildest dreams. However, Tom causes havoc as his lust for fish kicks in, and starts raiding local restaurant Krusty Krab, whose owner Mr. Krabs, first enraged at the intrusion, sees the opportunity to get rid of his nemesis Plankton. But it's going to take a lot more than a cat to beat the living hell out of a plancton, and the popular Spongebob Squarepants and his friends offer their help to the cat and mouse as Plankton gets greedy and attempts to get the cat to his side so he can take over the Krusty Krab. Will Tom, Jerry and Spongebob arrive in time to put a stop to Plankton's nefarious plans?

Tom and Jerry's pals Tuffy the baby mouse, Spike the dog and his son Tyke and Droopy will also join the hefty crew of characters in this brilliantly frantic encounter with three loved-by-everyone characters.

Vocal talents Billy West and MauriceLaMarche will provide voices for Spongebob Squarepants, Tom and plenty of other characters.

DVD bonus includes How To Draw, an easy step-by-step tutorial on drawing your favorite characters by director John Kricfalusi, an interview with character designer Stephen DeStefano and animator Bob Camp and a short featurette wherein the duo will perform their biggest antics yet.

The DVD, complete with bonus features, will retail for $24.99 SRP.
