* CatsAreSuperior: Mr.Hubert firmly believes in this, especially in the comics. In the eight album, he even tells Billy that no other creature (not even humans) is as well adapted to this world as cats, and claims that, sometimes, he wonders if the entire universe was created just for cats.

* FantasticRacism: Between cats and dogs. This is more notable in the animated series. Cats and dogs absolutely despise each other and don´t even seem to consider getting along. Also, Mr. Hubert in the series seems to be unable to consider pigeons as anything other than food, and takes a bit of time to accept the pigeon Jumbo as an ally.
** In the animated series, there was also a group of purebred dogs who had sworn to kill not only every cat they come across, but also any dog that isn´t a purebred like themselves. Meaning that, yes, these dogs extend their racism to even their own kind.



* BadBoss: Sanctifer towards the rats that serve and worship him. He is quite cruel towards them and doesn´t think twice about killing them should they fail him.

** Interestingly, dogs get a much worse portrayal than cats. As said above, other than the villain Sanctifer, the worst a cat can be is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold. Dogs, however, are not only shown as being dumb brutes, but also as very vicious, highly racist against cats and more than willing to eat them. There are even times where the only reason they chase and try to kill the cat characters is, indeed, only because they are cats. While there are heroic dogs in both the comics and the series, this is one rare occasion where a dog is much more likely to be the antagonist rather than a cat.

* AdaptationalHeroism: While Sanctifer is still an asshole, he is no way near as evil as the megalomaniac sociopath he was in the comic.

Not to be confused with the UK comic strip of the same name, which ran in ''TheBeano'' and was about a teenage superhero, or with [[ComicStrip/BloomCounty Bill the Cat]].

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: In the episode ''Happy Starday'', astronomers seem to look for an individual star, visible with nacked eye, and than name it, so it has not been seen. (How do they know, for what they look?) Besides, Mr. Hubert has to move to be in the light of his star, that he already sees. (If hee sees it, its light falls on his eyes.)
