Cartoon Cat Lovers Mania

Do you have a cartoon cat favorite? Here are some cats from the comic strips and animated kitties from the cartoons. I'm a fan of animated films and cartoons, and obviously I really like ones with feline characters in them.

Let's see if we can pull together an animated and cartoon cat compilation. These will come from any number of sources, including books, TV, animated films, comic strips, the Internet, and so on.

I touched on this subject earlier in the site's history, and some of the most famous cartoon cats are already listed here. There are also some animated characters in these funny cat films. In this section, we'll not only expand on the original list, but go a bit more in-depth into some of the characters.

If you like to draw, or want to learn, I've put together some resources where you can learn how to draw a cat in various styles, including cartoon cats.

Bill the Cat of Bloom County

Bill the Cat of Bloom County, Outland, and Opus is a thin, tall, scruffy orange cat with a pot belly, created by Berkeley Breathed. Bill died in a car crash and came back to life (as a clone), ran for president, and hacks up fur balls a lot.

In fact, much of Bill's dialogue involves hacking up hair balls. Bill is probably the most unlikely film star and rock star in history. Of course, that's one of the things that makes him so interesting.

Bucky B. Katt of Get Fuzzy

Bucky Katt of Get Fuzzy is an odd looking, somewhat short and pudgy, single-fanged Siamese cat. Bucky, created by Darby Conley, lives with his owner, Rob Wilco, and Rob's dog, Satchel Pooch.

Bucky exhibits a number of characteristics of the stereotype of a cat... cunning, scheming, selfish, and usually trying to cause trouble for his housemate, Satchel Pooch. Satchel, on the other hand, is a stereotypical dog... very naive and trusting, and sometimes a little slow to catch on.


No discussion of cat comics or cartoons would be complete without Garfield. Garfield was born on June 19, 1978, which is the date the comic strip Garfield was first published. He holds a Guinness World Record for being the most widely syndicated comic strip in the world.

With $1 billion a year in merchandise sales, Garfield is an industry all his own. Some have been critical of this kind of commercial success, but it's hard to argue 

The story centers around Garfield (named after creator Jim Davis' grandfather), his owner Jon Arbuckle, and Jon's dog Odie. Garfield certainly has cat-titude. He is sarcastic, loves lasagna, and often seems disgusted with others.

The Mows

Jay Dyke has an Internet comic strip about his cats, called the Mows. That's funny to me since I've been referring to cats as mows or mowsters for years.

Samurai Pizza Cats

3-2-1, Pizza Cats are on the run!

The Samurai Pizza Cats are a Japanese anime series focusing on three cat ninja warriors who fight crime. Speedy Cerviche, Polly Esther, and Guido Anchovy work in a pizza place owned by another cat named Francine, and fight crime in Little Tokyo.

The series makes fun of itself and is a parody of sorts of anime in general. There are a lot of puns and jokes within the series, some of which you have to think about for a minute (at least we mortals do).

If you're not used to anime, it can be a bit of an adjustment. Some people look at it and walk away shaking their head, simply saying "what the heck is that?" But, anime has a huge fan base throughout the world.
