The Catillac Cats
11 December 2004 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This segment was the second half of the Heathcliff television series. It starred Riff Raff, a short big-talking orange cat who lived in a junkyard with his sidekicks, Hector a Himalayan cat who of schemed of himself being the boss, Worsdworth a white cat that spoke in rhyme, and Mungo, a big dumb purple cat. Riff Raff's girlfriend Cleo lived in a music shop (and she is arguable one of the nicest looking female cartoon characters ever). Many episodes revolved around Riff Raff trying to gain money to buy food, or try to buy something expensive for Cleo. Others involved the cats fighting off strangers or intruders that dared try to take over their junkyard. And why were these guys called The Catillac Cats? They were cats that had a Cadillac car. But it didn't just drive around. It could morph into a kinds of things: A hovercraft, a trailer, a submarine, you name it. The Cadillac really was what made the show unique, and is what held a child's interest. Sure Heathcliff & the Catillac Cats were for kids, but I am 17 and I miss this show, particularly the Catillac Cats (I found the Heathcliff segments very boring), and I wish they were back on TV. Yes, they are on DVD now, and that's wonderful. But only a handful of episodes are on DVD, and it'd be more satisfying to see every episode released. That would make one of the world's greatest Christmas presents.
