I hope this film gets an official English dub just so I can hear Chris Sabat sing about bingo!
Commissioned by me and drawn by Betsy.
In case you are wondering, this is in fact Edmund from Don Bluth’s “Rock-a-Doodle”. This was more for Betsy than for me since she loves his design and used to draw him all the time when she was young.
However, we both agree that the film is a mess. One of those problems is Edmund himself. Not only is the child actor playing him terrible, the whole live action/animation integration and going into the book is confusing and pointless. Also, the whole “I’m not a cat, I’m a boy” plot point doesn’t work when the animals are anthropomorphic and there are not any humans around so comments like “Cats don’t go to school” just come off as perplexing.
As such, I asked Betsy to put Edmund in more normal clothes as opposed to that makeshift Davy Crockett outfit. The idea is that this is how Edmund would have looked if already existed in Chanticleer’s world as a cat. I think that could have worked in the film’s favor. Besides, doesn’t he look cute in overalls?

I ship them and I am not even a Yuri fan.
Here is some CATS fanart commissioned for me and drawn by Betsy. Grizabella is singing “Memory” on the left and Mr. Mistoffelees is putting on a magic show on the right.
I prefer the characters of CATS to look more feline-like rather than directly translating the costumes to the drawing board.
It’s good to be here.
“Originally, we had developed a story loosely based on the classic Charles Perrault fairy tale, which involved Puss and three sons of the miller; however, the studio decided to go back to the drawing board and flesh out a new story told on a grander scale - something that would be more worthy of such a larger-than-life character.” - Joe M. Aguilar, producer, Puss In Boots
I think the film would have been much better if they had followed the fairy tale more closely.The whole backstory with Humpty Dumpty didn’t work for me. Besides, the reason they used Puss in Boots as a hit man in Shrek 2 in the first place was that in the original fairy tale, he killed an ogre. Granted, it was a shapeshifter that he tricked into turning into a mouse and promptly ate him but still…
