Fridge / Kaeloo

Fridge Horror
  • The premise of the show itself: Kaeloo ends up transforming into a giant monster whose actions are beyond her conscious control and hurting her loved ones.
  • Smileyland doesn't have police officers or firefighters.
  • In "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", Kaeloo agrees to seduce Mr. Cat in order to produce a baby for Stumpy to take care of. Now consider the anatomical differences between cats and frogs. Thankfully, it never got to that stage thanks to an emotional outburst on Kaeloo's side before anything could happen. However, if they'd gone through with the plan, it would not have ended well. There's also the fact that neither cats nor frogs produce one baby at a time...
    • If Kaeloo and Mr. Cat did have kids, those poor kids would have wound up with a mother who turned into a monster and did things she couldn't control whenever she got angry, and a psychopathic and evil father.
    • If the kids produced could transform like their mother...
    • Also, Mr. Cat is less than 13, and Kaeloo may or may not be in the same age group ...
  • So far, we've only seen seven inhabitants of Smileyland and have been given insight into the past of three of them, and one is the "guardian" of the place. What happened to everyone else?
  • The scene at the end of "Let's Play House" just seems like a naughty little joke, but the implications of the entire scene, from Mr. Cat rubbing his groin against Kaeloo's to the honking sound effect that played once the lights went out were rather unfortunate. In other words an attempt at rape had just been shown on-screen. Granted, the fact that she can transform into a hulking monster and beat the stuffing out of him lessens the impact, but it is more the idea that Mr. Cat might not be above raping his friend which is truly frightening.
    • This happens again in "Let's Play Baby-Sitting". She slips out between his legs and then beats him up for it.
  • In Episode 77, Olaf is nowhere to be seen when the planet explodes. And he was confirmed to be in Smileyland during the episode...
  • Episode 65 ends with Kaeloo, Stumpy and Quack Quack chasing Mr. Cat around with his own weapons, pretending that they are him and he is Quack Quack. It's funny until Mr. Cat yells "I'M NOT INDESTRUCTIBLE!"
  • Yoghurts are shown to be sentient in Smileyland. Quack-Quack eats them by the crate.
  • The Carnivore Confusion Mr. Cat must have as a result of constantly being around a duck, a squirrel, two rabbits, a penguin and a frog. It's lampshaded in a few episodes, too.
  • Cats tend to play with their prey while it's still alive. This gives a whole new meaning to Mr. Cat, a cat, playing games with animals such as a squirrel, a duck and two rabbits, which are normally eaten by cats.
  • Kaeloo's psychological profile in general. At times, to prevent herself from transforming into Bad Kaeloo out of rage, she forces herself into a wired-open grin. She also puts a lot of emphasis on being 'cute', 'sweet' and 'nice'. The fact that she was so overjoyed to die via being crushed by a meteorite in Let's Play the Quest for the Wholly Gruel indicates she may even be suicidal. Add to that her readiness to leave Smileyland in "Let's Play Courtroom Drama" when she decided her other personality was a serious threat to her friends and it quickly becomes clear that Bad Kaeloo is holding her hostage in her own body.
  • The main four treat everything like a game. Olaf, who has proven to be quite dangerous, does not.
  • In Episode 75, Mr. Cat reacts very negatively to Quack Quack leaving. In the absence of someone to torture, he almost kills Stumpy with a chainsaw. What's going to happen when Mr. Cat leaves Smileyland?
  • Mr. Cat can just claim to be a "professional [insert occupation here]", etc. and everyone just believes what he says. This includes professions such as, for example, a doctor. Someone whose hands a person's life is trusted in in emergencies.
  • The expository comics show Stumpy holding a chainsaw and Mr. Cat playing with weapons and explosives - as babies.
    • Stumpy has been shown on the show several times to be a victim of Parental Neglect, so his mother probably didn't know or didn't care. Mr. Cat, on the other hand... given his backstory in "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", it's even possible that he was an unwanted kitten. Let that sink in.
    • This is shown again in a flashback in episode 110, where little Stumpy is shown, before going to bed, using a taser instead of a stuffed animal. He then bites the taser, which gives him an electric shock.
  • Mr. Cat's psychopathic behavior is even scarier when Episode 34 reveals that he is less than 13 years old.
  • In Episode 106, Mr. Cat offers to sell Stumpy a bazooka. Kaeloo diverts the conversation, but what would have happened if a dangerous weapon like that wound up in the hands of someone like Stumpy, who is not only lethally stupid but also established to be insane?
  • In "Let's Play Air Pockets", before the plane takes off, Mr. Cat says that the plane will take off after he has had some champagne to celebrate the CEO's retirement. Mr. Cat is the pilot. And champagne is alcoholic. He may have been drunk-driving a plane.
  • Once an Episode, Kaeloo winds up Hulking Out and beating up Mr. Cat severely. The problem is, Mr. Cat already has psychological issues due to being abused as a kitten. He claims to be fine with what Bad Kaeloo does to him, but it definitely can't be healthy.
  • Some of the things the characters go through, like Mr. Cat's alcohol problem and sadomasochistic tendencies and Pretty's possible eating disorder, are more unsettling when you realize that all of them are just kids who are less than 13 years old.
  • In episodes like "Let's Play House" and "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", Mr. Cat's parenting style is shown. It's pretty clear that he's probably going to become an Abusive Parent.
  • In "Let's Play House", the gang are, well, Playing House, with Kaeloo as the mother, Mr. Cat as the father, and Stumpy and Quack Quack as the kids. Mr. Cat as the "father" is eager to punish the "kids" by putting them through horrible abuse including punching them, roundhouse kicking them in the face, insulting them, and whacking them with mallets, claiming that it's just discipline, and when Kaeloo objects, he accuses her of being "too gentle". and it gets so bad the "kids" decide to run away, and Mr. Cat genuinely doesn't seem to care about their departure. What do we know about Mr. Cat's past? He was born into a family which was so abusive he decided to run away. What if his act in this episode reflects his actual life at home?
    • In Episode 112, Bad Kaeloo gives Mr. Cat a beating so severe that he nearly loses consciousness when it's over; he remarks that she must have been drinking "without moderation". Mr. Cat's father was an alcoholic gangster.
  • In Episode 121, Olaf calls the main four for a job interview. He claims that the whole thing was a joke, but what if he was secretly assessing their strengths and weaknesses so he could use this information against them in another attempt to Take Over the World.
  • In Episode 59, Mr. Cat's dish for the cooking competition is cooked eyes. Where exactly did he, a psychopath with severe psychological issues, get the eyes from?
  • In "Let's Play Hopscotch", Kaeloo sees Quack Quack playing Mr. Cat's hopscotch game and says "Quack Quack is showing us the path! Follow in his footsteps and we'll all go to Heaven!" Given the fact that Mr. Cat had set up the hopscotch game to lead to Hell and not Heaven, what would have happened if Kaeloo had actually followed Quack Quack?
  • While we don't know the exact ages of the characters, Mr. Cat is less than 13 and Kaeloo is implied to be post-pubescent. Kaeloo is also implied to have a crush on Mr. Cat. Even if you assume that they are both kids, Mr. Cat has tried to have sex with Kaeloo at least two times. A kid who is less than 13 has tried to have sex with another kid or worse yet, someone who is older than him.
  • Mr. Cat remembers that his father was an alcoholic, that his mother yelled a lot, that his brothers used to beat him and that he was almost drowned when he was youngernote ... and he is less than 13. No wonder he has issues.
  • Assuming that the whole "Only kids are allowed in Smileyland and you have to leave once you hit puberty" thing is true, one can only imagine how the overly idealistic and naive frog, extremely stupid squirrel and mentally unstable cat will be able to deal with that...
  • The fact that there's a store selling weapons, drugs and other dangerous stuff to a bunch of kids.
  • This is more of a Fridge Tear Jerker - in episode 105, Mr. Cat gets rid of his bad thoughts (which are represented by miniature versions of him) in order to save Smileyland. One of his bad thoughts is just walking around saying "I'm doomed" over and over again and the other bad thoughts are jerks to each other, calling each other stupid, ugly, threatening and even attacking each other and at one point, Mr. Cat tells one of them that it is ugly. At first it may look like that's just Mr. Cat being, well, Mr. Cat, but remember, in this case, he is literally doing this to himself. Think about that for a second.
  • Another Fridge Tear Jerker: In Episode 75, Mr. Cat, with the intention of changing something about the past by talking to Past!Kaeloo, goes back in time to the series pilot, only to be stopped and beaten up by Present!Bad Kaeloo. The thing is, it's possible he may have been trying to alter the failed Love Confession he made to Kaeloo at the end of the pilot. And got beaten up for it. For someone who's already been through a lot of traumatic experiences, and has proven to be very attached to Kaeloo, that can't be a very good thing to happen...
  • In "Let's Play School-Run, Work, Bedtime", when Mr. Cat sees Kaeloo yelling at Stumpy, he informs her that yelling at a kid can traumatize them for life. Mr. Cat has mentioned before that his own mother used to yell at him a lot when he was a kid.
  • Quack Quack was a lab animal whose parents were killed by a hunter. In this universe, some animals are anthropomorphic and capable of speech and thought just like humans. What if there are other lab animals or animals that get hunted?
  • How exactly did Quack Quack figure out that he was indestructible? Someone would've had to try to kill him for him to find out.
  • Another Fridge Tear Jerker - While "Let's Play Goodbye Mr. Cat" thankfully ended with the cast finding out that Mr. Cat just caught some sort of disease and wasn't actually turning into a teenager, the characters will still become teenagers one day and... yes, considering how close the main cast is, it's pretty depressing to think about.
  • In "Let's Play Danger Island Survivor", Mr. Cat tries to break up Kaeloo and Quack Quack's friendship and then tortures Quack Quack just because Kaeloo called Quack Quack her "best friend". In Episode 105, we are shown Mr. Cat's dream version of Smileyland and it's populated only by himself and a bunch of Kaeloo clones, with nobody else in sight. In general, Mr. Cat annoys Kaeloo to get her attention even if it means suffering extreme pain because he apparently prefers to be beaten up by her than be ignored. That takes "unhealthy emotional attachment" to a whole new level...
  • In "Let's Play Driver's License", if you look at Mr. Cat's license, it also mentions that Mr. Cat is authorized to own weapons. Somebody authorized a sociopathic preteen to own weapons.
    • This also raises questions as to how he obtains alcohol and tobacco. If he's authorized to own weapons and drive a car at that age, it's possible he might be legally obtaining harmful substances.
  • In "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", Quack Quack imagines the babies of Kaeloo and Mr. Cat as orange tadpoles with whiskers, which understandably freaks him out. The show has lots of Interspecies Romance: the Official Couples of Quack Quack (duck) with Eugly (rabbit) and Stumpy (squirrel) with Ursula (cat), and the potential couples of Stumpy (squirrel) with Pretty (rabbit) and Kaeloo (frog) with Mr. Cat (cat). Assuming these couples last until they have children, Smileyland will be swarming with freaky hybrids. To make things worse, none of the species mentioned above produces one offspring at a time...
  • A massive fridge Tear Jerker: Mr. Cat mentions that his brothers were abusive and his father was alcoholic, but his mother was very kind to him apart from all the screaming. Mr. Cat had to run away from home due to all the abuse, and likely couldn't tell anyone at home that he was going to in case they stopped him. In "Let's Play Spies", under the effects of the Truth Serum, he breaks down crying and it's clear he misses his mother. And it's not likely he'll ever see her again.
  • In Episode 86, Kaeloo takes Mr. Cat to see her psychotherapist. Eventually, even though the therapy seems to be working, Kaeloo drags him out of the doctor's office because of two reasons: the doctor liked Mr. Cat better than her, and she was bored of waiting so long for the session to finish. After that, Mr. Cat says he'll come back on Thursday for another appointment, but Kaeloo prevents him from going. She also gets mad at him for talking to her therapist on the phone later (although this is somewhat justified since he was talking about her). In the end, she sticks him and the rest of the cast into a clearly ineffective group therapy, where nobody is likely to get any help. In other words, Kaeloo just stopped her friend with psychological issues from getting help because she was too selfish to let him.
  • In "Let's Play Spies", Mr. Cat breaks down crying in front of Kaeloo (and the others) because of the Truth Serum and gives insight into his past, and the whole scene shows that deep down he's very insecure. In "Let's Play Baby-Sitting", he gives Kaeloo another tragic backstory. In Episode 86, Kaeloo takes Mr. Cat to therapy claiming that he has issues, and drags him back out later since she was bored of sitting there (and most likely heard all sorts of details about him and his life). In Episode 91, Kaeloo blatantly makes fun of Mr. Cat for having self-esteem issues. All of these things suggest that Kaeloo's negative treatment of Mr. Cat isn't because she's unaware of his issues, but she knows and just plain doesn't care.
  • The sheer callousness Stumpy exhibits in Episode 134. To get revenge on Mr. Cat, he gets his army of clones to destroy Mr. Cat's car by driving a bunch of other cars into it at full speed... with Mr. Cat inside. Mr. Cat survives this, but is left shaking all over and traumatized. Stumpy then drops a fridge on him. Later, when Stumpy receives a package in the mail from Ursula and only one of the Stumpys can get it, the original Stumpy tricks his clones into going through a Portal Door to who-knows-where and traps them there forever, all for the sake of a mail package.
  • It's clear that each time Quack Quack gets his head blown off with a bazooka or gets chopped in half, he actually dies and has to be revived each time.
  • If Quack Quack had actually died in Episode 125, Mr. Cat would probably have a really, really hard time coming to terms with what he did. Kaeloo blatantly loves Quack Quack more than anyone else, so there's also no telling how this incident would have impacted Kaeloo and Mr. Cat's relationship. And given how emotionally attached Mr. Cat is to Kaeloo, their relationship crumbling, added with the guilt he had from killing his own friend, would probably drive him further off the deep end than he already is.
  • In "Let's Play Peace, Man!", Mr. Cat's reaction to Kaeloo forcibly kissing him has him just staring into space with a traumatized expression and panicking when Kaeloo asks him if she can kiss him again. It seems like he's overreacting, but then you realize that the kiss was offscreen and there's no indication of how much time passed between that scene and the next. Given the kind of show this is, it's quite possible she did a lot more than just kiss him...
  • The ending of Episode 144. Once the gang manage to exorcise Quack Quack, the demon starts flying towards them, announcing that it wants to Take Over the World, while they cower behind each other in fear. Olaf shows up and calmly makes his robot Serguei destroy the demon, since he thinks he should be the one to dominate the planet. We now know that the lunatic bent on becoming the world's emperor is capable of building technology to kill demons that would scare even Mr. Cat, who has had experience with zombies, ghosts and other paranormal elements.
  • Episode 86 reveals that Mr. Cat suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. That means he regularly suffers from visual and auditory hallucinations, maybe even during the events of the episodes. Think about that.
  • Stumpy managed to beat Mr. Cat in a fight in Episode 63. As the show goes on, Stumpy starts acting more and more like Mr. Cat, and it becomes clearer that he's smarter than people think he is. If he doesn't stop becoming evil, he might become an even worse version of Mr. Cat in the future.
  • In "Let's Play Figurines", Kaeloo pulls out one of Mr. Cat's whiskers. This was Played for Laughs, but when a cat's whiskers are damaged or removed, the cat becomes disoriented, unable to navigate properly and very frightened.
  • It's established that Quack Quack has an infinite number of lives (though he definitely will die someday), Mr. Cat has nine, and Kaeloo and Stumpy only have one life each. Mr. Cat will probably outlive Kaeloo and Stumpy, the former of whom he is very, very attached to, and Quack Quack will outlive all of them.
    • Not enough? Mr. Cat already has psychological issues which cause him to hurt Quack Quack. If he outlives two of his closest friends, the impact will probably be pretty bad. What will he do to Quack Quack then?
  • In "Let's Play TV News", one of the things Mr. Cat says to Kaeloo while trying to make her beat him up so he can be on TV is "Finish me off!" This line may be implying that he's willing to be killed in a very violent way just to get on television.
  • As if Mr. Cat smoking wasn't bad enough, "Let's Play Happy Rotter" shows him smoking while sleeping.
  • In "Let's Play School-Run, Work, Bedtime", an exhausted Stumpy falls asleep at the breakfast table before going to school, and his face lands in his cereal bowl. If Kaeloo hadn't woken him up, he could have drowned in the milk.
  • In Episode 143, when Smileyland is plunged into darkness, Stumpy, and later Kaeloo, lock themselves in the fridge because it has lights. If they stayed there for too long, they could have been killed. Especially Kaeloo, who is cold-blooded.
  • Over the course of the show, it has been proven that Mr. Cat will do almost anything for money; threatening to shoot Kaeloo (the person he is most attached to) in the head, traumatizing Quack Quack, endangering Stumpy's life, and so on. Now, if someone like Olaf bribed him with money...
  • In Episode 81, after walking around a desert for a couple of days, Pretty casually says she needs a facelift. Why would a preteen get a facelift, and say something like that so casually?
  • It's suggested that the game of Hide 'n Hunt played in "Let's Play Hide 'n Hunt" was not Mr. Cat's first time playing it...
  • Also in "Let's Play Hide 'n Hunt", Kaeloo notices that Mr. Cat is only shooting at Quack Quack and demands that he target everyone equally, even if that means making herself a target. Given the fact that Kaeloo has been shown to enjoy the idea of dying, it's entirely possible that she actually wanted him to kill her.
  • The Love Potion from Episode 80 has the effect of making the person who drinks it act like a slave to the person who gave it to them, rather than showing actual love. Whoever made that potion clearly has a twisted idea of "love"... and this potion is readily available for anyone and everyone to buy on the internet.

Fridge Brilliance
  • Kaeloo denies being a boy or a girl, but is clearly female. Then you remember that for some species of frog, gender isn't exactly a fixed attribute, and that hermaphrodites aren't a rare occurrence among amphibians.
  • Why didn't the spaceship work in Episode 77? If it was the same one from "Let's Play Astronauts", it runs on imagination, and the gang clearly weren't imagining anything at the moment.
  • In "Let's Play Time Travel", the episode starts with Stumpy as Prince Charming, riding on his "horse" Quack Quack, to kiss Sleeping Beauty. Suddenly, Mr. Cat shows up out of nowhere and shoots Stumpy with a bazooka and says that Sleeping Beauty is "his". This may seem like Mr. Cat being a jerk as usual, but Kaeloo's lines later in the episode make it seem like she was also part of the game. Since she was the only one not present during this scene, we can conclude that the Sleeping Beauty in the game was Kaeloo - who Mr. Cat has a crush on.
  • Stumpy frequently says he can't read or write. So how come he's such a big fan of comic books? The pictures help him understand.
    • This may also be the reason he hates books without pictures.
  • In Episode 128, Pretty believes that Stumpy is faking his injuries. She was one of the background dancers in Mr. Cat's presentation to Stumpy on how to manipulate people into donating money, and therefore probably knew what he was doing.
  • In Episode 133, Mr. Cat seems to be much nicer to Kaeloo than usual. Then you realize that he had been drinking at the party, and other episodes have shown that he tends to drop the Jerkass Façade and be much nicer when he drinks.
  • In Episode 87, why does Kaeloo get angry at Mr. Cat for ordering an alcoholic beverage but not get mad at Stumpy for ordering one? Because she was well aware that Stumpy couldn't possibly pay for it.
  • In "Let's Play Teachers", when Stumpy answers a question with "Quack", Kaeloo tells him he was wrong, but Quack Quack answers the same question with "Quack" and Kaeloo says that was the right answer. In Episode 69, it is revealed that Quack Quack actually speaks a duck language, and "Quack" can have several different meanings. Stumpy probably used the wrong one.
  • Kaeloo is well aware of the fact that Mr. Cat hates Pretty, so why does she keep trying to keep Pretty away from him anyway? Kaeloo puts a lot of emphasis on being "cute", and the sight of a very beautiful girl trying to flirt with her crush probably makes her feel threatened.
  • Mr. Cat is quite narcissistic, and Kaeloo, who has a crush on him, loves all things "cute". What's the number one thing cats and kittens are known for? Cuteness.
  • In "Let's Play Time Travel", Mr. Cat buys a time machine even though he's a Gadgeteer Genius, and was shown to be capable of performing repairs on it later, meaning he knows how a time machine works and would be able to build one. So why didn't he? The company he bought it from was called "Time Machine Express™", meaning time machines are trademarked and making his own would be illegal (though he does do other illegal things like underage drinking).
  • In Episode 118, when Mr. Cat suggests attacking Pretty with a chainsaw, Quack Quack, despite being the nicest member of the main four, immediately agrees. There are two possible reasons:
    • Pretty made fun of not only Quack Quack, but also of his beloved friends (the rest of the main four), and his girlfriend, Eugly, so he was mad at her for hurting the people he loves.
    • Mr. Cat always attacks Quack Quack with his chainsaw, and Quack Quack thought it would be nice to see this treatment applied to someone who actually deserved it.
  • A lot of people complain that it isn't fair that Stumpy, Quack Quack and Pretty almost always pull a Karma Houdini and gets away with all sorts of horrible things... but they actually do get karma - Stumpy is a Cosmic Plaything, Quack Quack is mercilessly tortured by Mr. Cat all the time and Pretty is absolutely infatuated with Mr. Cat, who doesn't love her and most likely never will, instead opting for Kaeloo, who is one of Pretty's main bullying victims.
  • The main four always see each other as friends despite the horrible things they do to each other. Sometimes they get revenge, sometimes they let it slide. Why? They're only kids. Kids tend to get into fights a lot, but resolve them much quicker than teens and adults do, as though nothing had happened between them.
  • Most fans found the ending of the episode "Let's Play Courtroom Drama" to be a What the Hell, Hero? moment for Kaeloo, since she seems almost happy that Mr. Cat is leaving Smileyland. But there's also the possibility that she was happy since if he left, she wouldn't be able to hurt him anymore.
  • This one may seem very obvious: Olaf's goal is to Take Over the World and become its king. He's an emperor penguin.
  • Mr. Cat's love of money. He's implied in some episodes to be an alley cat, and most likely grew up poor.
  • Overlapping with Fridge Tear Jerker: A possible reason for Stumpy acting more and more like Mr. Cat as the show goes on. In "Let's Play Astronauts", Mr. Cat says that the psychopathic Mr. Duck, a Mirror Universe version of Quack Quack who is just like Mr. Cat, is a "true" friend. Since the episode was All Just a Dream that Stumpy had, we can assume that Stumpy thinks that Mr. Cat only considers people like himself as friends. Stumpy absolutely idolizes Mr. Cat, so it's possible he's acting like him on purpose to get Mr. Cat to see him as a "true" friend like Mr. Duck.
  • In Episode 54, Mr. Cat is eager to solve the issue of Kaeloo's Ambiguous Gender. He has a crush on her, and is probably trying to figure out if he's bisexual or straight.
  • In "Let's Play Red Light, Green Light", Quack Quack doesn't move when Mr. Cat fires a missile at him, since the rules of the game state that he can't move while Mr. Cat is watching him, and he gets hit. This may seem like him being Too Dumb to Live at first, but then you remember that he's fully aware that he's indestructible and probably knew he wouldn't be harmed by it.
  • In the show's third season, the characters are relatively nicer to each other, Stumpy is slightly more intelligent and is treated better, and there's plenty of shipping fuel for Kaeloo and Mr. Cat. In Episode 105, the season premiere, Stumpy, who wanted to be intelligent and be treated better, and is a hardcore shipper of Kaeloo and Mr. Cat in-universe, took over the animation studio and said he'd write all the scripts for future episodes.
  • Alchoholism can be influenced by genes. In "Let's Play Golf", Mr. Cat mentions that his father drank a lot, giving an explanation for Mr. Cat's alcoholism.
  • In "Let's Play Figurines", Mr. Cat exhibits what appears to be Comical Overreacting when Kaeloo yanks out one of his whiskers. Despite being able to take being punched, kicked and beaten into different shapes, he actually gets tears in his eyes and runs around screaming in pain. Cats' whiskers are much more deeply rooted in the body than other hairs and are rich in nerve endings, so he wasn't overreacting, it's just that he was in more pain due to several pain receptors being activated. As for running in different directions, when a cat loses a whisker, it makes it somewhat difficult for the cat to navigate.
  • When the main four dive into a pile of sausages in Episode 135 and eat them, Mr. Cat seems to be enjoying them more than anyone else. Sausages are made of meat, and cats are carnivores.
  • In Episode 136, one of the roleplay scenarios where Kaeloo must tell a lie is when Quack Quack, as a little kid, hands her an ugly present for Mother's Day and she must pretend to like it. Why was Quack Quack allotted this role? Because even outside the roleplay, in the characters' real lives, Kaeloo is Quack Quack's Parental Substitute, so to her it would feel just like talking to her own child.
  • In Episode 128, in order to get pity from people watching him on TV, Stumpy says a sad, exaggerated/made-up story about how his sisters mistreated him as a child. Mr. Cat, despite being aware that this is a scam, watches the presentation with tears in his eyes. Mr. Cat is also from a very abusive family and was picked on by his older brothers, so it's possible the story reminded him of his own childhood.
  • In Episode 58, Mr. Cat hangs himself after getting fed up with Stumpy's stupidity, only to be fine in the next scene. This may be because Death Is a Slap on the Wrist and characters have died before, but it could also be because the fact that Cats Have Nine Lives has been established on the show.
  • Kaeloo and Mr. Cat's callous treatment of Stumpy in "Let's Play Doctors and Nurses", despite them normally showing that deep down, they do care about him. Kaeloo has shown before that she can't really tell between a game and real life, so she probably thought his illness was part of the game. Mr. Cat, while being fairly intelligent, showed up in the middle of the game, so he probably thought Stumpy was playing and not actually sick.
  • The reason why Kaeloo is more angered by Mr. Cat stepping on a flower than shooting, sawing or burning Quack Quack: stepping on a flower kills it, and the flowers seem to be the show's Red Shirt. Quack Quack, on the other hand, is indestructible, so what Mr. Cat does to him can be likened to typical schoolyard bullying, though a bit more violent.
  • In Episode 91, Stumpy remarks that the show's episodes are really badly written. While the characters often do this, of course Stumpy would hate the show! He gets abused by his friends, and he's unlucky, stupid and bad at almost everything. Would you like to see a show where you were a Butt-Monkey and a Chew Toy who was used as comic relief?
  • In Episode 141, Kaeloo decides to do a dance performance which is sexually suggestive while wearing a revealing outfit to impress the judges and win; the judges find it vulgar, so they kick her off the show. The judges in question are a pair of heterosexual females and a guy who is "married", and therefore they probably don't find her attractive.
  • In Episode 129, when it's night time, Kaeloo starts to feel cold and has to snuggle with Mr. Cat for warmth while everyone else was perfectly fine. Frogs are cold-blooded, so she was probably affected more by the change in temperature than her warm-blooded friends.
  • Mr. Cat has often been shown to enjoy eating expired food. Mr. Cat was an alley cat. Where do alley cats usually eat from? The trash, which is more than likely to contain expired food.
  • In "Let's Play Art Class", Stumpy is portrayed as a brilliant artist, whereas many episodes which come after this show him to be just as bad at art as he is at everything else. Why? At the end of "Let's Play Art Class", Kaeloo taught Stumpy to follow a set of rules that she herself had been using when making art, which caused her art to turn out horrible. It's likely that Stumpy is following the rules Kaeloo taught him.
  • Stumpy has mentioned being a victim of Parental Neglect. His parents must be having a hard time paying attention to 37 kids.
  • While the English dub of "Let's Play Goodbye, Mr. Cat!" has Stumpy scream "Don't abandon us, Mr. Cat!", the French dub has his line be "Don't leave me all alone, Mr. Cat!" At first this might not seem to make sense, since he still has two other friends and therefore would not be "all alone", but then you remember that at this point in the series Kaeloo always blatantly favoritized Quack Quack over Stumpy, and Quack Quack always beat Stumpy at everything, so Stumpy probably felt that Mr. Cat was the only one who even remotely understood him.

Fridge Logic
