Simon's Cat is an animated cartoon series by the English animator, Simon Tofield. Each episode revolves around the adventures of a house cat, who uses increasingly heavy-handed tactics to get its owner's attention. The series is hand drawn and then animated in Adobe Flash. There are also four published books and a series of Daily Mirrorstrips featuring the titular cat in comic form, as well as two apps.Cat owners will attest to many of the behaviours seen.
Seen in "Screen Grab", in the beginning. The cat gets annoyed at being woken up by the kitten playing with a feather, and bops him on the head, only to start playing with the feather himself a second later. You can almost hear the dialogue: *bop* "Stop interrupting my na — ooh, a feather!"
Attention Whore: While it's usually with the prospect of food in mind, the cat will go to any lengths to be the object of its owner's attention, and will dispose of any opposition (eg. the TV, the computer).
Insane Cat Logic: Most of the cat's actions boil down to "Getting my owner's attention = Food!". More specifically "Hit with bat = Food!", "Unplug computer = Food!", "Turn off TV = Food!". To the cat, any action he performs will end up providing him food.
I Surrender, Suckers: The kitten does this in 'Double Trouble'. After plopping into the "surrender" position (lying flat on his back) in response to the cat hissing at him, the kitten waits until the cat closes his eyes and gloats over his victory, then deftly throws a pillow at him, nearly knocking him off the couch.
It's All About Me: It's a pet, so it's granted it can't really act considerate, but the cat endlessly and sometimes rather elaborately pesters its owner to dote over him, and now.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: The cat. He is quite mischievous most of the time, but he has his moments where he's affectionate.
Silence Is Golden: It's a cat, so it's not going to talk. Any speech from Simon is minimal and usually grunts or sighs, but occasionally he'll utter a word or two. In "Window Pains", he actually uttered a full sentence: "What're ya doin'?"
