|Puppets and cats|
The wonderful 1940 Walt Disney movie Pinocchio featured two animated cats in prominent roles. One was the adorable Figaro, the pampered pet of old Gepetto, who created the Pinocchio puppet.
Figaro is with Gepetto when he is swallowed by the whale Monstro. The other cat, quite different, is Gideon, the dopey companion of the fox J. Worthington Foulfellow; these two form a pair devoted to Pinocchio’s moral downfall.
