the Ball (Maurice Gosfield), Top Cat cleverly devised get-rich
schemes while keeping a look out for the local copper, Officer

THEME SONG LYRICS
The most effectual Top Cat!
Who’s intellectual close friends get to call him T. C.
Providing it’s with dignity.
The indisputable leader of the gang.
He’s the boss, he’s a pip, he’s the championship.
He’s the most tip top, Top Cat.
Yes he’s a chief, he’s a king,
But above everything,
He’s the most tip top,
Top Cat. Top Cat!
