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.

…Pictures are displayed below in alphabetical order to make it easier to use as for reference. This pictorial list be be updated periodically as time & reasearch allows. Your suggestions will also be taken into consideration when possible. Enjoy!!!!!

Top 10 Unusual Top 10 Lists

There are a number of websites out there (including this one) that feature “Top 10” style lists or specialty lists of  favorite something or another. Well, I thought I’d turn the tables around this time and do a somewhat unique post of “Top 10 Unusual Top 10 Lists” with a nice variety of subject matter featured. The following list will feature a LINK as well as a short descriptive paragraph about the featured list/link. These are here simply to amuse, educate, entertain, awaken, amaze, astonish, surprise, scare and/or even disgust you the reader…..

You have now been forewarned so proceed to the loading dock with caution, at your own risk, and try to enjoy your soon to be acquired knowledge 😛

► #1 ~ Vacation Nightmares

Many articles have been written documenting the world’s greatest travel destinations.  However, this list will be examining some locations that you don’t want to visit or would be better off avoiding.  In planning a family vacation or cross-country trip, you just might want to cross these of your itinerary and stay as far away from them as possible. Many of the areas have a serious pollution problems, toxic waste, bad history or are extremely violent or dangerous…..

► #2 ~ Twisted Video Games

Warning: Some of the videos included in this list may contain material that is offensive to some readers.

The use of codes is intended to convey essential information quickly and with a minimum of misunderstanding to staff. Some places use secret codes to pass information between store employees. These are meant to be a secret as they don’t want to alarm the non-staff members or alert someone like a thief to the fact that they have been noticed…..

Secret Codes The General Public Is Not Suppose To Know

► #4 ~ Eye-Opening Ads

Another warning should be applied with this link too. This is just what the title indicates… Offensive, Banned & Rejected Ads from around the world. I think once you view some of these you’ll see why most if not all were done in poor taste and would definitely create controversy…..

As if death was not morbid enough, many people have taken last rites to a whole new level of dreadfulness.

Those of you who think burial and cremation are the only death rituals – please prepare yourself before you read what follows in the link below…..

► #8 ~ Bizarre Coming-of-Age Rituals

Rites of passage in adolescence are a cross-cultural phenomenon. They have existed throughout human history and may be a significant factor in the development of a stable adult personality. In Western culture, we are familiar with such rites as the Bar Mitzvah, Sweet 16 parties, and Quinceañera. In tribal cultures, coming of age ceremonies are, in many cases, much more elaborate and can be truly terrifying…..

10 More Ideas or Thoughts To Ponder Over

When you find yourself with just a little too much time on your hands, here are a few more thoughts to ponder over. I’m sure you may be able to relate to….. or have thought about one or two of the following ideas. Try not to spend to much time on each one 😛

  • The severity of the itch is directly proportional to YOUR inability to reach it.
  • The sooner you fall behind, the more time you’ll have to catch up.
  • A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.
  • Why isn’t phonetic spelled the way it sounds?
  • Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?
  • Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
  • How can someone “draw a blank”?
  • How far east can you go before you’re heading west?
  • Why is it that everyone driving faster than you is considered an idiot and everyone driving slower than you is a moron?

Incredible Hoax Websites For The Gullibly Challenged

Let me start off first by defining exactly what I mean by the words HOAX and GULLIBLE:

HOAX generally means to trick into believing or accepting as genuine something false and often preposterous — often meant to be a so-called prank, practical joke or spoof. It can also be defined as an act, document or artifact intended to deceive or defraud.

So that means that these  HOAX websites are basically fake or fictitious web pages — you might even call them funny spoof sites that will try to deceive you or fool you in some way, usually all in good fun — some are more convincing than others — but not necessarily all of them.

A GULLIBLE person can easily be ‘taken in’ or ‘tricked’, ‘deceived’ or ‘duped’. They are considered to be naive and not really alert to danger or deception, largely due to the ‘lack of worldly experience’.

Over the years, a number of enterprising individuals (entrepreneurs) have come up with clever, wacky as well as eye-catching ways to market and/or promote bizarre and unusual gadgets, inventions, behaviors, ideas or maybe try to sell non-existent products to those that would be gullible enough to fall for it. A few may even try to get you to believe in some concept or theory that is non-existent or you haven’t heard before. A number of these are amusing and fun while others are just incredibly lame or stupid. A growing number of new sites tend to pop-up around April 1st… April Fool’s Day. Tons of these sites have come and gone over the years… only to resurface again every so often. However, there are a few that have had “staying power” due to a variety of reasons… viral marketing… unusual promotions… social networking… overwhelming curiosity mixed with too much free time… etc.

People have published some hilarious, bizarre and strange things on the Internet and the world wide web has become a breeding ground for hoaxes. So, with all being said, here you will find some of the more interesting and intriguing sites that I consider among the best I’ve come across on the web.

THIS IS STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS

Create your own music and sounds with this cool 3D Sound-visualizer – Basically a simple sine-wave synthesizer triggered by an ordinary 16-step sequencer. Each triggered step causes a force on the underlying wave-map, which makes it more entertaining and mesmerizing – You gotta see this for yourself — Very Addicting — Fantastically fun to play with – Be prepared to lose track of time.

A cool and yet so simple way to relieve all that pent-up anger or stress you build up sometimes. The object here is quite simple… Click on your favorite celebrity or politician, say someone like Eminem. Up pops a photo of the man (or woman), posing in an obnoxious way. You know it’s two-dimensional, but you begin to feel like he’s giving you dirty looks. Soon your blood boils: “WHAT ARE YOU STARING AT, SLIM SHADY?” you scream. “I’LL SHOW YOU WHO THE REAL ONE IS.” The next thing you know, you’re throwing down the gauntlet and picking up the mouse. You click on his photo like crazy. A right-click here and a right-jab there. You hear a joke “oomph” sound effect come over your speakers and you see his photo distort and warp with every smack. Punch features good sound effects, custom-made for each celebrity (try them all!). Wanna slap the grease paint right off of Ronald McDonald? Go ahead and give him a good BigsMac. And chuckle endlessly when he screeches “Mc Ow!” in response to every hit you land. The silly warping of faces is phenomenal; these contortions are worth the price of admission. Like any good boxing ring, though, there is some curses, sexual innuendos, and scattered drug references on this page so be careful…it’s an R-Rated place to be. This site has been around for quite sometime (celebs may be a little out of date)
