*EnsembleDarkhorse: The goldfish in 'Fish Tank' is quite a hit with the fans, being able to outwit the titular cat in question and making it get all the blame in the mess both of them caused at the end in a surprising display of intelligence for a fish.

* [[NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity No Such Thing as Bad Attention]]: Done very subtly in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s13dLaTIHSg 'TV Dinner']]: after the cat tries (and fails) to get Simon's attention by meowing, he starts scratching the arm of the couch. Simon snaps his fingers at the cat to try to get him to stop, and ''you can see the cat smile and resume scratching'' as if he's thinking, "Hmm, that got his attention!"

** How "Cat Man Do" came to be, according to creator Simon Tofield:
--->[[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/6589965/Simons-Cat-becomes-internet-star.html "I basically sat down one day and thought I'd teach myself to use some new computer animation...And that morning Hugh, who was then a tiny kitten, had been jumping all over me pulling my ears and scratching me, trying to wake me up for his breakfast. So I decided to do a little film of a cat trying to wake its owner. And I made it up as I went along."]]
** A lot of the cat's antics are based on the antics of Simon's own cats. The new kitten added to the cast also happens to be based on his newest kitten.

* {{Narm}}: Seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VLcLH97eRw 'Double Trouble']] when the kitten finally gets his paws on the cat's food bowl. The cat tries to get it back, and in response the kitten crouches low, his fur stands on end, he lets out a meow/growl of warning and he gives an angry look. He's obviously trying to be threatening, but he ends up looking adorable and funny instead (which was probably intentional on the animator's part).

** In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLnHzv7OKao Muddy Paws]], the Kitten comes into the house, dirty and tracking mud on the ground. Rather than getting angry, Simon's Cat cleans the Kitten like a fussing parent. This is a big contrast from their first meeting, where they were rivals.
** There's a scene in the comic book where Simon's Cat goes outside to explore the world after dark. In one scene, he's partying and playing music with the other animals rather than chasing or playing pranks on them.

* {{Narm}}: A kind of "in-universe" example can be seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VLcLH97eRw 'Double Trouble']] when the kitten finally gets his paws on the cat's food bowl. The cat tries to get it back, and in response the kitten crouches low, his fur stands on end, he lets out a meow/growl of warning and he gives an angry look. He's obviously trying to be threatening, but he ends up looking adorable and funny instead. An unusual example in that this isn't the fault of the animator, it's just how things can be with cats in real life.
