Saturday Morning Cartoons .001 Eek! The Cat

Hey guys. This is a new segment on my website I’m starting called Saturday Morning Cartoons. It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything new. Well I’m changing that. Every Saturday I’m going to post a Cartoon I grew up with along with a sketch of the cartoon. The first one is going to be Eek! The Cat.

Eek! The Cat was a Saturday Morning cartoon from FOX that aired during the 90′s. It has the classic mix-up of Cat’s and Dogs. This show aired around when Ren & Stimpy was really popular over at Nick so it was one of those cartoons that saw what that show was doing and tried their own version of that.

The main character is a cat named Eek who is abused by his dumb family, he is always trying to get the affection of a fat pink cat that is always eating something but usually the thing that gets in the way is her dog Sharky.

The show is kind of like Ren & Stimpy meets Tom & Jerry, Heathcliff, and some Looney Tunes. It’s a great combination with great characters. It doesn’t do anything new, it’s more a rehash of old concepts with a 90′s take, Rocko’s Modern Life was better at this. The best part of the show was the Thunder Lizards which ended up getting their own spin-off, but the whole package is straight 90′s nostalgia.

Eek! The Cat

90′s saturday morning cartoons


The show comes from a long line of crazy hi-jinx of the week type of cartoons you rarely see anymore. The only show I can think of that is currently doing these kinds of episodes is Johnny Test.  There are better shows that do what Eek! does. Two Stupid Dogs, Rocko’s Modern Life, The Flintstones, but the charm in Eek! was Eek himself. He was the unluckiest cat ever but he always had this great optimism. It was great for kids I think, kind of showing no matter how hard you got it there is always an upside.

The sketch is pretty shitty. lol
