Wednesday: Hili dialogue

Good morning on Wednesday February 15, 2017. It should be National Leftover Candy day, but it’s actually National Gumdrop Day and National Chewing Gum Day. It’s also National Flag Day of Canada, celebrating the adoption of its current flag in 1965: And can somebody tell me why the hockey team is called the “Maple Leafs” rather than the […]

Simon’s cat: Valentine specials

We have two Simon’s Cat specials for Valentine’s Day. In the first, Simon Tofield shows how he makes one of the pictures used in the second video.  I don’t think the cat’s inamorata is thrilled to get a box o’ mice. And here’s the final product for today: “Dinner Date: Starters.” Note how the cat is […]

Happy Halloween from Simon’s Cat

Two new episodes of Simon’s Cat

Paws and relax on British Airways

We’ll end the week with—hmm. . . what will lift our spirits? How about CATS?? In a remarkably enlightened move, British Airways is tempting ailurophilic customers with a new channel on its long-distance flights. As Yahoo Travel reports: Do you ever go on Youtube only to get caught in an endless web of cat videos? […]

The story of Simon’s Cat

Animator Simon Tofield has produced a brand-new biographical cartoon telling the story of how he got into animation, how the “Simon’s Cat” series came about, and how he makes those adorable videos. He reveals, for instance, that he has four cats, whose antics are all amalgamated into the unnamed cartoon moggie, and that it takes […]

Simon’s cat goes ice fishing

This is a particularly good episode of Simon’s Cat, the animation wonderfully done, as always, by Simon Tofield.  And now you can buy Simon’s Cat stuffz, too! Support Tofield and his work by buying a tee-shirt or a cool ceramic Simon. h/t: Michael
