Trivia / Catscratch

  • Actor Allusion: The episode "Off The Leash" has Barkmeat the dog pronounce grimly to Waffle, "This struggle is not over. It shall continue until only one of us remains." Barkmeat is voiced by Clancy Brown, who plays The Kurgan.
  • Executive Meddling: Why Mr. Black had his name changed to Mr. Blik between Gear and this.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The entire series is available online, even if it does take some digging to find them. Constant attempts have been made by various people to get the series on YouTube, but the episodes are usually removed within days, if not hours. Websites have also been made to host high-quality episodes of the show through file storage. Only two episodes have ever even gotten an official home release, and that was on compilation DVDs; a third was planned, but the DVD series was canceled before that could happen. Two episodes were also released onto the out-dated mobile video platform VideoNow. Only it's German dub has been officially released by Nickelodeon. In short, good luck ever actually watching this show.
  • Screwed by the Network: If you look at the episode premieres, you'll notice that there are long breaks in the premieres after the 9th, 16th and 19th episodes. That's right, there was a 4-month break before the last episode premiered. Also, after going off-air on Nickelodeon for a few months, it was moved to premium channel Nicktoons Network - but they somehow only managed to air 17 out of 20 episodes in a 13 month period before replacing it with El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera for some arcane reason. It probably would have been 16 if not for the fact that the second-to-last episode was aired way earlier in the order for a Music Week the channel was doing.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • It was originally supposed to be a less serious adaptation of the creator's graphic novel, which had some pretty epic looking concept art (click on the little squares under Catscratch on the left). Somewhere along the way, it morphed into Catscratch.
    • Had the show managed a second season, Katilda, in a similar vein to what happened with Marceline in Adventure Time, would have appeared much more frequently.
