Bagheera from The Jungle Book
Without a shadow of a doubt, Bagheera possesses all of the best traits any cat would love to possess. He's wise. He's dedicated. He has very silky fur. And most notably of them all, Bagheera was voiced by Sebastian Cabot and Ben Kingsley in two 'Jungle Book' films developed by Disney: first in the 1967 animated version, and second in the recent re-imagined CGI live action remake, circa 2016. Essentially he acts as a guide and a protector for Mowgli, the mischievous human child he rescues and helps raise from an infant. But ultimately he decides to set him free, to grow up, to become a man, without getting strangled by snakes, trod on by elephants, or clawed to death by tigers. You know, the usual things you'd find in a jungle.
Originally adapted from the popular 1960s TV show starring Phil Silvers, entitled Sergeant Bilko, Top Cat is a 1960s cartoon and a 2011 film, both which sees a yellow-hued wise-cracking cat take control of a group of alley cats whose main adversary is the local cop that continually tries to evict them. In the film version TC's adventures involve him and his friends combating the Police Chief’s nefarious attempts at framing him for stealing money from an orphanage. But of course, he isn't about to allow that to happen, is he? Not if Officer Dibble has anything to say about it!
