Midnight - Musical black cat
featured on the children's program SMILIN' ED'S GANG (ANDY'S
Midnight played the violin and danced for the viewers.
Midnight, who sometimes wore a dress, spoke (purred) only one word: "Ni-i-i-ce"
(voice of June Foray). A puppet mouse named Squeaky (who played a drum)
accompanied Midnight during her appearances. A real black cat and hamster
were used for the close-ups of Midnight and Squeaky.
TRIVIA NOTE: Midnight was the name of the black cat with the
diamond-studded collar seen in the opening credits of the detective
dramas MANNIX/CBS/1967-75 and BARNABY JONES/CBS/1973-80.
