YMMV / Top Cat

  • Awesome Ego: Top Cat himself.
  • Earworm: Yes he's the chief, he's the king, but above everything / He's the most tip top / Top Cat!
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Choo Choo and Spook tend to be the fan favorites of the gang.
    • Top Cat's onetime rival, Jazz, shows up frequently in fanworks.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: The title of the episode "The Late T.C." became this after Top Cat's voice actor, Arnold Stang, passed away in 2009.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: This series was a great happening in Latin America since the late 1960s. Just mention "Oficial Matute" (Officer Dibble) or "Cucho" (Choo-Choo) and watch the Latin Americans smile with nostalgia.
    • There was even a full-length animated movie from Mexico.
    • The series is also well-remembered in the United Kingdom, even making an appearance in a commercial for the Halifax bank.
  • Ho Yay: The show had an entirely male cast, so there was bound to be a little bit.
    • Often, when Fancy heard Top Cat summoning the group, the exchange between him and his date would go as follows:
      Girl cat: And Fancy, darling, you promise never, ever to leave me again?
      Fancy: Honey. Baby doll. What could ever make me leave you? (Hears T.C.) Top Cat! That’s who! (Runs off)
    • In Choo Choo’s Romance, Choo Choo is devastated when he thinks Top Cat is dead, saying that he “meant more to me than anything.”
    • In King for a Day, Top Cat has Choo Choo pose as his wife on a TV show.
  • Internet Backdraft: The aforementioned movie is not well liked by fans of the show.
  • Values Dissonance:
    • A few episodes have the term "Red Skin" thrown about when talking about Native Americans.
    • Choo Choo trying and failing to commit suicide was a running gag in the episode Choo Choo Goes Gaga.
  • The Woobie: Benny, Choo Choo.
  • Woolseyism: The Mexican dub.
