Heathcliff (a.k.a. Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats or Cats & Co.) is an animated television series that debuted on September 5, 1984. It was the second series based on the Heathcliff comic strip and was produced by DiC Entertainment. It ran in syndication until 1988 with a total of 86 episodes.

Why It Can Win It With You

  1. Great animation that faifthfully adapts the style of the comic strip.
  2. Charming and likable characters, such as Heathcliff himself.
  3. The Catillac Cats segments are really interesting, so is the fact that their Cadillac can morph into different forms. In fact, these characters would later appear in the comic strip despite being made for the show.
  4. Strong writing with great humor and decent slapstick.
  5. An execellent voice cast, with Mel Blanc playing Heathcliff.
  6. It faifthfully represents Heathcliff's reputation as a troublemaker which the first series failed to do.
  7. Inspector Gadget makes several cameos.
  8. Catchy theme song.
  9. Some members of the Catilliac Cats make appearances in the Heathcliff segments.
  10. The show includes advice for taking care of pets at the end of each episode.

Bad Qualities

  1. Sometimes the Heathcliff segments, while enjoyable for the most part, can be boring from time to time.
  2. Its movie is literally just a compilation of episodes, which was extremely lazy.
  3. Poor lip-sync on the human characters.

Trivia
