Strays & Alley Cats

Top CatTop Cat - A fast-talking, yellow-colored alley cat (who wears a hat and vest) on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon TOP CAT/ABC/1961-62.
Top Cat (voice of Arnold Stang) lives in a garbage can in Hoagy's Alley on Mad Avenue in Manhattan, near the 13th precinct police station.

With the help of such feline friends as Choo Choo (Marvin Kaplan) and Benny the Ball (Maurice Gosfield), Top Cat cleverly devised get-rich schemes while keeping a look out for the local copper, Officer Dibble (Allen Jenkins).

The Top Cat character was inspired by the Sgt. Bilko character from the military comedy YOU'LL NEVER GET RICH/CBS/1955-58.


THEME SONG LYRICS

Top Cat!
The most effectual Top Cat!
Who’s intellectual close friends get to call him T. C.
Providing it’s with dignity.

Top Cat!
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!
