Famous Cartoon Cats: Animated Fantasy Felines

From Aslan to Felix to Simba to Tigger, these famous cartoon cats have been entertaining us for years on television and film, and of course now on the Internet. We'll include some fantasy type characters here that are perhaps cahoomans (cat humans).

I'm also including some animated felines that maybe aren't cartoons, per se, but as Bobby Brown would say, "it's my prerogative."

Cartoon cat lovers may also enjoy these other pages, where we list more cartoon cats, and go more in depth with some animated felines, such as this page on Darby Conley's Get Fuzzy comic creation, Bucky Katt.


  • Aslan the Lion in The Lion, the Witch, and Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
  • The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. The cat with the funny hat has legions of fans, and practically an entire industry has grown up around this character (Cat in the Hat merchandise).
  • The Cheshire Cat in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

  • The Chinese Cat (my favorite character) in The Aristocats who was voiced by the same man who did the voice for another of our favorite famous cartoon cats, Tigger... Paul Winchell. Paul was an amazing talent and if you haven't looked into some of his accomplishments, both in and out of the animated world, you're missing out. He held over 30 patents and actually invented an artificial heart in 1963!
  • Felix the Cat was the first cartoon cat to appear in film.
  • It was pointed out in the comments that I had forgotten to mention Oliver, from the Disney film Oliver and Company.
  • Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book had a couple of feline characters that were brought to life by none other than Disney.
Bagheera the panther
  • Bagheera the panther (above) and Shere Khan, also known as Shere Khan the Tiger and sometimes alternately spelled Shere Kahn.

  • The Pink Panther
  • Snagglepuss, the pink mountain lion from Hanna-Barbera cartoons. Known for such catchphrases as "Exit, stage left!" and "Heavens to Murgatroyd!"
  • Simba, Mufasa, and Nala from the Lion King
Sylvester the cat
  • Sylvester from Warner Brothers Cartoon Fame.
  • Sylvester, of course, is famous for his "Sufferin' Succotash!" exclamation and chasing after Tweety Bird.
  • This is one of the most famous (if not the most famous) cat and bird teams.
  • The Thundercats cartoon
  • Tigger of Winnie the Pooh fame.
