As we wrap up our Top Cat episode…

…full of amazing cruise ship names…

Ted the Animator: “Cake or animation?”

Carl the Animator: “The latter… but now I’m hungry for the former.”

And Top Cat lives in a garbage bin with its own lil’ doorbell?

And there’s even a nice policeman fellow…

…with eyes that are a pair of apostrophes?!

I’m not gonna lie, folks, this show might be too flawless for us to do here on–

…oh? 

Ohhhhh?
