Watch Heathcliff

Heathcliff is the fun loving orange cat that brought laughter into homes in the 1980s. The cat lived near an alley, and he seemed to get into mischief wherever he turned. One of his best friends was a gray cat in a red hat, and they always seemed to be partners in crime when it came to taking fish from the trash can or finding mice in the alley. The Heathcliff show was in a comic strip format with the details and advancements to the next scenes. The show began in 1973, and it ended in 1988. The cat talks, and even has a girlfriend named Sonja. Iggy owns Heathcliff, and he adores the cat, although his father does not enjoy his antics. Other friends of the cat include Spike and Chauncey.
