Top Cat

So the swinging theme song immortalizes, "the chief, he's the king, but above everything: he's the most tiptop Top Cat!"... In the tradition of great screen conmen--one of the few with a visible tail--"Top Cat" holds a top spot in the hearts of cartoon fans.
The smooth-talking New York City cat, known as T.C. to his kitty cohorts Benny the Ball, Choo-Choo, Spook, The Brain and Fancy-Fancy, is always on the make toward a big score or swindle. And the bothersome--and ever-exasperated--Officer Dibble is relentlessly on his case (although always a step behind)--throughout 30 fast, funny episodes.
