** in the last couple of years, this has been 'upgraded' to JustinBieber. The Australian 2016 tour, at least, featured Rum Tum Tugger rapping his solos, wearing a backward baseball cap (with cat ears sticking out!), and 'fur' patterned with tribal tattoos.

** The Rum-Tum-Tugger's butt-shake apparently has a hypnotic effect on female cats, considering that he usually has a gaggle of them staring at it.

* YouDontLookLikeYou: The new version of the Rum Tum Tugger as introduced in the 2014 revival. He is now a cheeky young rapper complete with snapback as opposed to a camp 70s rockstar in his prime.

* ShowWithinAShow: "The Pekes and the Pollicles" and "Gus: The Theatre Cat".
* StairwayToHeaven: Or, more precisely, a ''tire'' to heaven. Other versions have their own version, including a ferris wheel gondola in the Swedish version.

*SpellMyNameWithAnS: Was is Mungojerrie or Rumpleteazer? Or Rumpelteazer, or Rumpleteaser, or Rumpelteaser?
The Theatre Cat".
original poems use the -el spelling, but the 1998 movie writes it with an -le.

* CutSong: Depending on the production, either "The Awefull Battle of The Pekes and the Pollicles" or "Growltiger's Last Stand" is left out. The 1998 production, for example, cut the latter song out, but a few productions do put in both.
** Most recent tours cut out "The Pekes and the Pollicles", but strangely enough, there is still usually an entry in the cast list for the Great Rumpus Cat.
** Additionally, most productions cut a verse out of "Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer", though there's not really a consistency on ''which'' verse.
** Much of Mistoffelees' dance solo from his title song was cut in the video production.
** There was a bit called "The Ballad of Billy [=McCaw=]", that was supposed to be Growltiger & Griddlebone's "last duet", and took place in the middle of "Growltiger's Last Stand". The bit was replaced by the "In Una Tepida Notte".

Creator/AndrewLloydWebber's other [[ThePhantomOfTheOpera most famous musical]]. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin It's a show about cats.]] More precisely, it's about a tribe of cats, the Jellicle Cats, and the once-a-year event where the Jellicle Leader, Old Deuteronomy, announces the cat who can now be reborn and come back in a different Jellicle Life, after the cats spend time introducing themselves, and their fellow cats, through song. It's based, pretty much, on Creator/TSEliot's book of poems ''Literature/OldPossumsBookOfPracticalCats''.
