______ I got a thing from my orthodontist yesterday in the mail about my first trip and such. In the "About Children's Orthodontics" brochure, on the back there is a picture of a girl in Cats makeup and a Cats wig, looks like Etcetera (thanks, JemimaKitty!).
______ In an ad for the Broadway production, You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, it has all the different things critics have said about it, and a logo of Snoopy that is saying, "Move over Cats!!!" Thanks, Sam!
______ In the Ball State University brochure, there is a picture of students putting on a production of Cats. It says, "Ball State's extracurricular calendar is packed with arts and cultural activites, from Broadway productions to guest lectures." Thanks, JemimaKitty!
______ They have a little animation that shows the logos of several Broadway shows. Of *course*, Cats is one of 'em (thanks, Ozzie!)!
______ My friend Tiffany (who I call Ed) and I were in line for the Raptor (the best ride ever!). Anyhoo, there were two people who didn't even know eachother were wearing Cats t-shirts. Ed freaked out (don't ask). Thanks, GermnMisto!
______ Inside the little booklet of my Chicago CD, they tell the history of the show. Here's what it says: "Though that original production ran for an extremely respectable 898 performances, it had the misfotune to open the same year as A Chorus Line, which was to become the longest-ever running show (at least until Cats eclipsed it). Thanks, Fleckenfell!
______ In this comic strip, Fergus (the dog) was making a time capsule. Fluffy (the cat) came up and asked if he could put a cat artifact in the capsule. Fergus said no, and Fluffy whipped out a box with the Cats eyes on it and said "But what better way to preserve the precious MEMORY" (that part was in bold) "of the feline spirit in the twentieth century than with my 10th anniversary special collectors edition box set of the smash-hit Broadway musical Cats ... on DVD?" Then he starts singing Memory in big letters, and Fergus says, "All right, all right!" Thanks, Kalliroscope!
______ At school my principal wore this dress that had a night time view of NYC at the bottom. It had a building and on it, it said Cats (thanks, Kari!).
______ There was a picture of some students across the street from the Winter Garden Theatre. You could see it in the background (thanks, Jen!)!
______ A lady who looks like Bebe Neuwirth when she was in Chicago starts singing "I Got Rhythm". Then all these people come out dancing, and all of the sudden two Cats come out from left/right! The one on the right was Misto, I don't know who the left one was! Then at the end (it was one of those Visa commericals, you can't buy a Tony ticket using American Express), Misto's pops up holding a Visa card with the cutest look on his face (thanks, Casio!)!
______ There is a Barbarbra Walters commercial out, and in the beginning, she's singing for a audition. When the director says that she can leave, Barbarbra says "Wait! I can do 'Cats'!" and starts pawing the air (thanks, Zoe!).
______ I took an English test on the book we just finished reading, The Crucible. One of the questions was, "Who wrote the Crucible?" Among the choices was Andrew Lloyd Webber (thanks, Trina/Skitty!)!
______ In this computer game, a shoot-'em-up, naughty game where you go around L.A., etc. when you go down in the subway there's posters for stuff on the walls and one of them is for Cats only it says something else on it, since it's a parody (thanks, Masked Rose!).
______ This is from a computer game. You play a detective who investigates various crimes around England. In the first case you do, about a statue of an Egyptian cat goddess that has been stolen, at the scene of the the crime a note is found that says "Macavity wasn't here!" So you go to Scotland Yard and talk to one of the investigators, who suggests that you go to the library and look up "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" by T.S. Eliot. Then he adds that it was the book that inspired the popular musical "Cats." You do get to read the Macavity poem (or Demeter's solo anyway). The criminal Macavity appears in almost all of your cases, always with the line, "Macavity wasn't here." And when you do unmask him, Macavity is actually a couple, man and wife! When you see them, they're holding masks made to look like Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer! Thanks, Jemima Mistoffelees!
______ There was an article about "The Sound Of Music". In the article it said, "Thirty-five years, one Cold War and an entire run of 'Cats' after Julie Andrews' Maria first charmed seven children, a navy captain and the world . . ." Thanks, Ozzie!
______ In a class I take, we performed a parody of Cats called Frogs. It had most of the songs with slight modifications to the lyrics, and some of the characters names had been altered (i.e. Grizabella the Glamour Cat to Frizzabella the Glamour Frog). It was a good play and the only song that wasn't altered was "Memory" (thanks, Grizzabella!).
______ View the below listed Cats sighting here (thanks, Sam!) found from Comics.com.
______ The Sunday newspaper comic "Grand Avenue" by Steve Breen had a Cats refrence. The date of this particular one was September 12, 1999. It shows the kid in his room, which has all sorts of theater posters all around it, one of which is a Cats poster. The other one you can see on that date was a Les Miserables poster (the kid's hair also poofs out similar to a Cats wig, but I don't think that counts). Thanks, Fleetpaw!
______ The boy was standing on a cardboard box on his front lawn, with a sign propped up that read, "Cats: 25 cents." He had put a bunch of stuffed cats on the box, and he was wearing a cat costume and had his face painted up, and coming out of his mouth was a broken musical note, no lyrics (thanks, Jemima Mistoffelees!).
