** The recut, ''Cool Cat The Kids Superhero'', adds even ''more'' irrelevant scenes: Cool Cat works on a painting, performs an additional rap number, briefly throws something into a recycling bin, rides on a motorcycle with Daddy Derek, films a vlog where he shows Daddy Derek doing a hitting-a-tree-with-an-ax exercise, and finds a lollipop, which prompts him to sing an inane ripoff of "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lollipop_(1958_song) Lollipop]]", before he randomly decides he doesn't want candy and puts it back down. Also, Butch and Maria (who's obviously much older than in her other scenes) are back. Maria meets Butch on the street and taunts him about not being in the parade, and how she gets to hang out with Cool Cat and meet celebrities, while he doesn't, then walks home with Cool Cat.

* VanityProject: Derek Savage is the CopiouslyCreditedCreator of this apparently self-financed adaptation of his series of self-published children's books, starring a character who he claims was his actual childhood ImaginaryFriend.

* CounterpartComparison:
** There's [[{{Webcomic/Sonichu}} another series]] about an anthropomorphic (un)original character and his creator/'father' fight against CardCarryingVillain [[TheBully bullies]] and [[{{Troll}} Internet trolls]].
** An anthropomorphic orange cat who is supposed to be "cool" but is considered insufferably annoying? So is {{VideoGame/Bubsy}}. A lot of critics and commentators have even said Bubsy is ''cooler''.
** Cool Cat occasionally calls to mind [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Poochie]]:
--->1997
--->'''Homer''': Whenever Poochie's not onscreen, all the other characters should be asking "where's Poochie?"
--->2015
--->'''Erik Estrada''': Wow, Vivica, it's such a beautiful day!
--->'''Vivica A. Fox''': Oh, it sure is, Erik. And ''where is Cool Cat?'' [[note]][[MemeticMutation DERE HE IS!]][[/note]]

* OneSceneWonder: The woman sitting in the convertible with Cool Cat and Daddy Derek during the Hollywood Christmas Parade (played by actress [[https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1004198/?ref_=tt_cl_t2 Anita Marie Curran]]) only appears in the parade sequence. There's no explanation for who she is, she doesn't speak or even get a close-up, and [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse disappears after the parade]].

Added DiffLines:

** The mouth of the Cool Cat costume alternates between being able to move and not move depending on the scene. Mama Cat, on the other hand, does not move her mouth ''at all''.


* InternetBackdraft:
** Several people have taken a real issue with the planned sequel, ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqd-aWDC5-0 Cool Cat Stops a School Shooting]]'', because [[https://twitter.com/CoolCatlovesyou/status/964003061722071040 it]] [[https://twitter.com/CoolCatlovesyou/status/964014756548919296 was]] [[https://twitter.com/CoolCatlovesyou/status/964538487889252352 conceived]] ''right after'', and ''directly because'' of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoneman_Douglas_High_School_shooting the then-recent Parkland school shooting]]. Criticism of this announcement ranged from TooSoon to accusations that Derek Savage is intentionally or unintentionally capitalizing on a real tragedy to promote more of his brand. In fact, some credence seems to be lent toward the latter criticism, given [[https://twitter.com/CoolCatlovesyou/status/964531572933214208 this Twitter conversation]] and also the absurdly high amount of money he wanted to raise for the project on Indiegogo ($25,000).
** Other people also called Savage out for [[https://twitter.com/CoolCatlovesyou/status/1001126031795798016/photo/1 (poorly) photoshopping Cool Cat's head over that of a soldier in a war-zone]] while celebrating Memorial Day 2018 (and then [[https://twitter.com/CoolCatlovesyou/status/1061704576930201600 reusing that photo]] for Veterans Day 2018).


* VindicatedByHistory: '''Inverted to hell and back'''. When the film came out, it developed a semi-ironic fanbase due to it's SoBadItsGood status and the fact people were touched by Savage's misguided but good intentions about bully awareness. However when Savage began to attack those who criticized the film such as [[WebVideo/IHATEVERYTHING Alex of IHE]], the film's reputation went from a charming, silly but well intended film to a VanityProject run by a man with a SmallNameBigEgo.
