Famous Cats


Garfield is one of my favorite famous cats. Created by Jim Davis in 1978, Garfield hates Mondays and loves lasagna. The Garfield comic strip appeared in a thousand newspapers around the world only a few years after this lazy cat's creation.

Another favorite of mine is Simba, the famous lion from Disney's 1994 animated film, The Lion King. Matthew Broderick and Jonathan Taylor Thomas (young Simba) provide the voice for Simba. The Broadway theatrical production of The Lion King opened in 1997.

Some more famous cats include:

Felix the Cat, created by Pat Sullivan, Otto Messmer and John King in 1919. Felix began his career as a movie star. He was the star of the first "talking" cartoon, which debuted a year before Mickey Mouse began talking. Felix the Cat is the longest running cartoon of all time.

Pink Panther was created by Friz Frelong for Blake Edward's 1964 comedy The Pink Panther.

Tigger is part of the Winnie the Pooh crew. Paul Winchell is the voice behind this bouncy, self-confidence cat.

Sylvester, from the Bugs Bunny Show, is forever trying to catch Tweety Bird. Mel Blanc provides the voice for this funny feline. Sylvester made his first appearance in the cartoon episode by Warner Brothers entitled "Life With Feathers" in 1945.

Duchess and O'Malley the Alley Cat are the much-loved duo from Walt Disney's 1970 animated film, The Aristocats.

The Cat in the Hat first appeared in the book by the same name in 1957 - a creation of Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss. Later this classic was made into a film.

Krazy Kat was the star of the first cat comic strip, debuting in the New York Journal in 1910. Created by George Herriman.

Morris, considered the most famous cat in America, was an orange tabby who was rescued from an animal shelter by professional animal trainer, Bob Martwick. Morris became the finicky 'spokes cat' for 9 Lives in 1969 and went on to reach international fame in the Starkist Seafood television commercials. The original Morris died in 1978. Bob Martwick, who passed away in 2001 at age 75, also trained the second Morris.
