* Subverted in the book (and film) ''{{Felidae}}'' in which the main characters are intelligent male cats in one way or another. This becomes a plot point as [[spoiler:it allows Francis to realize why Claudandus is commiting the murders.]]

* Snagglepuss, another "big cat", is both an aversion and an example.


Added DiffLines:

* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is a [[KidHero younger]] version of this trope. In most of the first season, he is very dumb, naive, and overconfident. From the second season on, he is [[DumbassNoMore smarter]] and tends more toward CatsAreSnarkers, but still very [[TheChewToy accident-prone]] and perfectly capable of making an ass of himself. All of this contrast with Nicole, his mom and the only other cat in the show, who is a hyper-competent {{badass}}.

** [[WesternAnimation/SlyvesterTheCatAndTweetyBird Sylvester]]. Even in cartoons where he's not chasing prey -- there's a well-known one where he's trapped with WesternAnimation/PorkyPig in an abandoned hotel full of murderous mice, and they're the aggressors from start to finish -- he's still portrayed as a buffoon.

** A "big cat" example: Pete Puma. He asked BugsBunny if he could have two lumps in his tea, but Bugs gives him two lumps on his head.
** The two cats in Bob Clampett's last Tweety cartoon, "Gruesome Twosome". One is dopey; the other is a moderately brighter fellow complete with Jimmy Durante voice and schnoz. [[Creator/AbbottAndCostello Babbott and Catstello]] (especially Catstello), the antagonists from Tweety's 1942 debut, also fit this trope.
