T.H.E. Cat

This would rank high on my list of the most obscure animated openings for a TV series. It's from 1966 and features the exploits of Thomas Hewitt Edward Cat, played by Robert Loggia.

In the series, he's a retired cat burglar turned bodyguard. The animation plays after the narrator does his thing, about 58 seconds into the video, and also briefly at the end of the clip.

Classic retro at a time when there was no such thing as retro.

Oh that's classic! Just brilliant and just as powerful today. I wonder where the original art is?
