Default This is a thread about Cats the Musical.


I was interested in this as a kid because there was a plot about it on Caroline and the City and my cover story was I definitely had big-time heterosexual interest in Lea Thompson. I ended up watching the musical once when I was drunk with friends like 8 years ago. Now there was a very cute episode about this on the final season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. There's an upcoming motion picture adaptation with one Taylor Swift... it's the one musical I will see in theaters...

I was planning on making a “This is a thread about Felix the Cat” thread later when I had more time, but now it will just look derivative...

I have never watched Cats, the musical, and I have no particular interest in altering my viewing habits in that direction, but I look at the preview image and I have to ask;

How many of the Thundercats were inspired by the Cats-cats?

Because to my untrained eyes, the answer is “all of them, I think”

The only think I know about Cats was it inspired that episode of Get a Life, Zoo Animals on Wheels.

Cats the Musical is a thing I’ve seen a few times thanks to Ushering at the theater. Memory is rightfully the thing that most people are gonna remember. Either that or all the spoofs of it.



Real question is how many of you have read T.S. Eliot’s book o’ cat poetry?

Macavity the Mystery Cat, he's called the Hidden Paw
For he's the master criminal who can defy the law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair
For when they reach the scene of the crime, Macavity's not there!


... That was off the top of my head.

Yes, my mother was an English teacher. Why do you ask?

I have read it too. Because of the end of Metal Gear Solid 2 referencing The Hollow Men and an old FAQ about the end of MGS2. Then i bought his complete work and read it.

Yes, i was a teenager who was obsessed with PS2 games. Why do you ask?
