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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • "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.
  • Internet Backdraft: The aforementioned movie is not well liked by fans of the show.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: Benny had four episodes dedicated solely to him, and there were several more episodes where something he did got the ball rolling. Not to mention that in Top Cat and the Beverly Hills Cats, he got the spotlight again.
  • 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
