* AdaptationDisplacement: The lyrics were lifted from Creator/TSEliot's poems, mainly from the book Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats. Guess which gets more exposure?

* ValuesDissonance: Macavity's habit of cheating at cards, which now reads as ArsonMurderAndJaywalking, was never a criminal act, but it was once an extremely serious social offence. In the nineteenth century, accusations of cheating could and did lead to duels.

** The line about a "heathen Chinese" was acceptable when T.S. Eliot wrote the line, but it's very clearly racist (and seen as such) today.

* PeripheryHatedom: It used to be common to make fun of the musical for being a melodramatic musical about cats. This caused many references and parodies in 90s media.

** Not a character interpretation exactly but some fans view the characters as anthropomorphic cats while others view them as 'normal' cats simply played by humans.



* EarWorm: So many of them, but mainly "Memory".

** The Rum Tum Tugger and Mistoffelees are a particularly confusing instance. RTT sings Mistoffolees' song, and it's commonly accepted that they're friends, at least until you remember that in RTT's song the chorus goes "The Rum Tum Tugger is a-" and Mistoffelees shouts "...terrible bore!" Fans are divided on their relationship with one another.\\

WordOfGod says that Mistoffelees and the Tugger are two of a group of four brothers (the other two being Munkustrap and Alonzo), and this forms the basis for their love/hate relationship. It also explains the reactions of Munkustrap and Alonzo to the Tugger and Mistoffolees, and vice versa.
