Trivia / Eek! The Cat

  • Creator Breakdown: The idea for the show came from co-creator Savage Steve Holland's failed experience as a cat owner. All three of his cats died for tragic reasons, with one of them jumping out a 15-story window, another getting carried away by a hawk, and the last one (actually named Eek) drinking antifreeze and passing out in the driveway.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices:
    • In one episode, Eek takes the audience backstage and reveals that he and Annabelle are both voiced by people of the opposite gender to their character.
    • In another episode, Valley of the Dogs, Sharky has an internal monologue (done in song) that makes no effort to hide that a woman is providing the voice.
  • Descended Creator: Bill Kopp himself is the voice of Eek, Pierre and Kutter.
    • Also, Steve Savage Holland voiced characters in each segment: Elmo, Doc Tari and Wade Heap.
  • Follow the Leader: To Garfield and Friends, which it was pretty good at following.
  • International Coproduction: Between Savage Studios in the USA and Nelvana in Canada (Film Roman of the US produced the Klutter segments).
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Your best bet for the show is YouTube or, if you taped the show when it first came on in the 1990s or during the reruns on Fox Family, VHS tapes. It's pretty much stuck in the Disney vaults, since they got the show after acquiring Saban/Fox Kids back in 2001 and, while some foreign networks (mainly Jetix before those networks were rebranded) have run the show in recent years, it's not likely to be seen here anytime soon.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • According to The Other Wiki, Cozy was voiced by Jaid Barrymore (Drew Barrymore's mother) instead of Elizabeth Daily in his debut episode, Bearz In The Hood.
    • Zig-Zagged with Annabelle. In seasons 1, 2, and 4, she was voiced by Tawny Kitaen. In seasons 3 and 5, she was voiced by Karen Haber.
  • Talking to Himself:
  • Unintentional Period Piece: One episode has a joke based on the idea that there's nothing on television on Sunday except golf.
