25 years ago yesterday. The awesome show known as Eek! The Cat came out on Fox Kids becoming one of its hit shows back in the day. It lasted 75 episodes with 5 seasons (this was more than a typical Nicktoon got) and even had some toys released in stores and a VHS tape. When it debuted, it was on a Friday afternoon as a sneak preview before the next day where it settled in its Saturday Morning timeslot airing right after Tom and Jerry Kids and right before Tiny Toon Adventures. Later on, it got segments like The Terrible Thunderlizards and Klutter. This show is definitely one of my favorite cartoons from the 90s. The animation is pretty fluid and bouncy, the humor is great, the slapstick is awesome, it has a lot of energy to it, the characters are lovable, and it knows that its a cartoon. However, the biggest reason I love this show is Eek! The Cat himself. He is the kind of character that can brighten up anyone's day. He's cheerful, happy, and always looks for the good in stuff. I also love it when the show did parodies and had celebrities on the show. The Eek! The Cat segments of the show started out promising and very good and only got better from there. The show also has a fantastic rock and roll theme song. Overall, it was definitely one of the best Fox Kids programs. Maybe not on the level of Merrie Melodies, Batman, or Animaniacs, but I can see this being either #4 or #5 in my opinion. It's neck and neck between this and The Tick. After the show left Fox Kids in Fall 1997, it came back for a short time in the Summer of 1998 where it was paired with other comedys in a half hour package program. Then it moved to Fox Family before Disney acquired the Saban programs including Eek! The show hasn't really been seen since then and it doesn't have an official DVD release. Nevertheless, Eek! was a great show. Kumbaya. Batman and Eek! aren't the only Fox Kids shows turning 25 this year. Dog City and X-Men will be turning 25 soon.
