Top Cat (voiced by Arnold Stang in the style of comedian Phil Silvers) was the main character in the prime-time animated situation comedy Top Cat, which ran for 30 episodes from 1961 to 1962 on ABC, later airing in Saturday-morning reruns on NBC and (later) in syndication and on Cartoon Network.
His "birthday" is May 29th.
Top Cat (or T.C.) is the leader of a gang of alley cats. He is a con cat who makes his living by being somewhat lazy, clever and very funny. He often steals others' ideas and tricks his gang and Officer Dibble, using schemes to make his feline life more comfortable. He does respect the gang, but takes advantage of others' naivete. Even though he seems selfish, lazy and conniving, T.C. is loyal to the gang and will come to their assistance if necessary.
In Top Cat: the Movie (2011), T.C. meets his new love interest: a female cat by the name of Trixie.
