The Hilarious Cartoon Cats.

We love them! Those funny cartoon cats of the movies.


The boring newsreel finishes, what's next?

Great! It's a cartoon, even better it's a cartoon featuring one of the famous animated cats.

A visit to the movies in days of yesteryear often meant enjoying a double feature, and if you were really lucky, an animated cartoon.

These short films provided a few moments in the crazy world inhabited by zany characters who did horrific things to each other.

Most usually these characters were animals with exaggerated human traits, ducks, mice, rabbits, dogs, birds, even a skunk, but for many people the most hilarious of these animated characters were the cartoon cats.

Nearly always the aggressor, rarely the victor, these fantasy felines survived explosions, electrocutions, sleepwalking off, or being pushed off of cliffs, having stylized ten ton weights dropped on them.

Yes, those old 'toons were violent, but none of the 'victims' suffered permanent harm, and were always back for more of the same in their next adventure.

Felix - King Cat of the Cartoons

In November of 1919 a simply drawn little fellow hit the cinema screen.

He did not have the power of speech, for this was the era of silent movies, but he had a wonderfully expressive personality and was able to convey a full range of emotions to his audience.

Perhaps the most famous of all the animated cats, Felix was the cat that kept on walking. This lovable little fellow held sway as the ' King of the cartoon characters', but then something happened to take away his crown... Find out what here > Felix the Cat.

Cat 'n Mouse Chase

There's nothing like a cat and mouse chase, for pandemonium, for mayhem, and most of all for laughs.

Tom and Jerry: Blast Off to Mars

The comic possibilities of a feline hunting a small, innocent looking rodent, have long been exploited by animators, and never better than in the Tom and Jerry series of cartoons.

Tom was perhaps the ideal cartoon cat, mischievous, impulsive, a bit of a wicked streak, but cute and lovable.

The mouse Jerry, was the perfect opponent for him, whimsical, cheeky and in no way close to being as innocent as he looked.Find out more about this lovable pair here > Tom and Jerry

Sufferin' Succotash It's Sylvester

Draw a cat, give him a big red nose, and huge jowls so that he looks funny. Now give him a rasping, spitting lisp, so that he also sounds funny.

Congratulations, you have just created Sylvester.

This famous cartoon cat was pitted against several adversaries in his many screen adventures, the best known is Tweetie Pie, the little canary who could always depend on Granny for protection.

Sylvester had a son, Sylvester Jr. who also featured in many of his cartoons, was Sylvester Jr. proud of his pop?, find out here> Sylvester

Herman and Katnip

A lovable rouge of a cat chases a cute endearing mouse but cute mouse gets the better of the cat in the end. Lots of cartoon violence throughout the show.

Now hold on! Doesn't this all seem a little familiar? Herman and Katnip

Top Cat Cartoon Show

Not an animated cat of the movies, but a smooth talking cat on the make and his gang of misfit moggy sidekicks that found their way on to our TV screens in the early sixties. That tip-top Top Cat.
