Storyline

T.C. thinks Benny the Ball is telling a joke when he says he's going to Hawaii. And it's no joke when Benny's showing his boat ticket. The gang wants to join over to this cruise as stowaways. As usual, it's no problem for T.C. but Officer Dribble is on a lookout for a counterfeiter who just hid on the ship where the cats came in. Dribble accidentally gets in the ship the minute it starts sailing... Dribble will have to cope with T.C. as well as trying to catch the crook... Written by RealLiveClaude

My First Look At Top Cat
6 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was my first look EVER at the short-lived animated TV series, Top Cat. I saw the DVD on sale at a wholesale place and took a gamble by buying it, sight-unseen. Whether that was a smart move, only time will tell. After the first episode, I am not so sure. I didn't really find it that funny. It's not stupid, but it's not a lot of laughs, either. I found it just kind of a blah story. Well, better than "blah" but so-so, at best. I am wondering if the humor comes on a little stronger in subsequent episodes.

A big reason I bought this was that it was based on THE PHIL SILVERS SHOW, otherwise known as BILKO. That program, featuring Silvers as the con-man Sgt. Bilko, was A LOT of laughs. I am hoping I see the same here. One thing, it was odd hearing "Doberman's" voice (Maurice Gosfeld). He was a character on "Bilko", and had a voice you could never forget, so it will be fun listening to him. Arnold Stang, who voices "Top Cat," did not sound like the Arnold Stang I remember from the candy bar commercials and such. He had a funny and distinctive voice back then, but I didn't hear that in this first episode.

Odd for somebody my age (60) watching this cartoon.....and for first time. Am I nuts? (don't answer)
