Question: I remember (and I seem to be the only one) that in the mid to late '70s, there was a Saturday morning cartoon featuring two cats, Waldo and Felicia. My brother and I named our two cats after these characters, but no one I've ever talked to can remember such a show. Help! — Sally
Televisionary: You're thinking of The Secret Lives of Waldo Kitty, which was about a wimpy cat (shot in live-action sequences) whose daydreams of grandeur (animated sequences) were the stuff of this show. Most of the fantasies involved Waldo saving himself and his gal-pal Felicia from the bullying bulldog Tyrone, who made their lives miserable in "real" life.Sound a lot like James Thurber's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty? The attorneys thought so, too. Facing a lawsuit, the producers changed the title to The New Adventures of Waldo Kitty. (Big difference, eh?)
Waldo's initial year-long network run began on NBC in 1975.
