Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats: Cleo (Part 1)

As we wrap up the Animal feet tributes, here is a 2 part tribute to Cleo from Heathcliff and the Catillac cats. ^_^

This Character is from a classic 1984 cartoon show called Heathcliff and the Catillac Cats. The show was divided up into two segments: one involving a mischievous Orange cat named Heathcliff which was the primary story of the show and another segment featuring a group of Junkyard cats called the Catillac cats.

Cleo is from the latter segment. She is the girlfriend of the leader of the Catillac Cats Riff Raff. She seems to have a lot of personality. She has a good heart but tends to often get exasperated with her boyfriend's antics. (Riff Raff likes to come up with a lot of get rich quick schemes and not all of them are quite so successful.) She lives in a music shop. Cleo's notable accessory are her leg warmers which have the result of drawing attention to her feet. 

This is one of those character where if I were to post all of her episodes... it would be like 60 tributes long. (Check Lola's earlier tributes  to see that I'm not exaggerating) Heathcliff ran for 86 episodes and Cleo was in several of them and she rarely wears shoes if at all.

Instead of doing one foot focused episode which even than has to be divided in half to keep the load times reasonable. This scenes in this one are from the episode Trash Dance where Cleo enters a dancing competition with her boyfriend. As you can imagine there are a lot of foot focused scenes.

A little bit of trivia about the Heathcliff series in general. Heathcliff was voiced by the Legendary voice actor Mel Blanc. The cartoon also has one of the Catchier Cartoon Openings I've heard. 

Ok another half of this set still to come!
