Watch Top Cat
- 2 Seasons
Top Cat, The much beloved classic cartoon series is a creation of cartoon mischief set in the crazy world of New York and told from the perspective of a gang of cats and their leader, the infamous Top Cat. The show was produced for children's television by the legendary animation group Hanna Barbara, and ran for 30 episodes in the 1960's before its eventual cancellation. Featuring a wide cast of characters playing a musical group of back alley miscreants lead by Top Cat, called T.C. by his gang and the pesky yet determined Officer Dibble, Top Cat ran for thirty episodes in 1961. It featured the voice talents of Arnold Stang and Maurice Gosfield, among many other guest stars. Top Cat mimics the traditional live action sitcom and comes complete with a laugh track. Episodes feature a wide range of plots and zany escapes from the hapless Officer Dibble, who is determined though ineffectual in his scheming to rid the feline gang from their alley. Top Cat earns his infamy through a slew of illegal (though harmlessly silly) activities, which each episode usually centers around, designed to earn a quick buck for himself and his crew. Meanwhile, his own constant search for love is often stymied by rivals such as the smooth Jazz Cat, who makes a strong bid for T.C's territory, and his own over-zealous amour. T.C. evades his captors and mugs for the camera with lighthearted narrow escapes and clever asides. From impersonations of the mayor and violin virtuosos at Carnegie Hall, to T.C.'s own spurned love interests and rivals, Top Cat is filled to the brim with hilarious set-ups and clever plot lines from the legendary animation studio.
