From such a long time ago...

I only saw a couple of episodes of "Henry's Cat" on VHS that my mom bought for me, but I still remember enjoying it. It was such a sweet cartoon, with simple animation but it always brought a smile to my face. One episode I remember in particular was when Henry's Cat decided to become a cartoon animator; as a film student now, I can easily say that they made the job A LOT easier than it actually is! Henry's Cat's adventures were always so cool, like when he fought a 3- headed dragon that told very bad jokes, or when he played a Tarzan-wannabe who always swung into trees. One of the best things about Henry's Cat was that it opened the door to my imagination; if this cat could have such adventures, why couldn't I? Yes, I really think that Henry's Cat was the start of my career as a writer and filmmaker. I especially loved Chris Rabbit, Henry's Cat's sidekick through thick and thin. If you can find a copy of this series, I highly recommend picking it up; it's great for kids and adults alike.
