Gallery of Famous Cartoon Cat Characters Over The Years

Alright CAT lovers everywhere, here’s the long awaited counterpart to the dog list I presented several years back….. about 7 years ago to be exact. The canine post became one of the all-time most popular posts on this site (according to the overall visitor count)

disney-cat-collageOnce again – a little intro… Nostalgia tends to take center stage when it comes to collective thoughts of your favorite childhood felines over the years.  Over the years you’ve encountered cats of various shapes, sizes, colors, spieces as well as dispositions in all sorts of media…..TV, movies, childrens books, comic books, billboards, commercials, advertisements, video games, brand name mascots, products, toys, etc. We’ve been exposed to a sensory overload of images – which kept us entertained. A lot of those memories were embedded in our minds on those Saturday morning cartoons. It’s kinda funny how you’ll remember many of these characters that you haven’t thought about in ages once you come across some of the images below.

So with that being said, there should be quite a number of familiar pictures below that all cat-collagegenerations will recognize, or I should say, American TV audiences primarily, from the pre-1940’s through the present. I’m sure there are some of these that you may still enjoy. The following gallery captures the majority of those felines that really stood out over the years. Many of these can be traced back to the early days of television (1940’s), (a few are even currently on the air). Some evolved from movies, others from the comic strips and funny pages (with many of these dating back to the 1920’s-1930’s). Many classic Disney, Hanna-Barbera, Warner Brothers, MGM, Terrytunes, Nicktoons, Looney Tunes, etc.

Keep in mind that these not only cover house cats but also include the big kitty cats too….. lions, tigers, leopards, panthers, cheetahs, wildcats, cougars, lynx, puma, etc.

Quite a few of these famous feline critters make us laugh with their quirky, irreverent, unique, carefree, styles which we never seem to tire of over the years. Hopefully your favorite is included below. If not, let me know and I’ll see what I can do to find them.
