YMMV / Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats

  • Fair for Its Day: Yes, Growltiger's Last Stand uses the Ch word, but the Siamese are obviously the heroes, in an era when Yellow Peril was a common trope.
  • Magnificent Bastard: Macavity
  • Shout-Out: While the musical Cats is by far the more famous work inspired by the book, a decade earlier it also provided the name of the band Mungo Jerry, a One-Hit Wonder with "In the Summertime."
    • Although Mungo Jerry had several hits in the UK including two number ones and a number two.
