2 How many Siamese cats taunted Lady in the Disney film "Lady and the Tramp"?
Answer: Two

The slinky Siamese cats Si and Am were featured in the 1995 film "Lady in the Tramp", in one of the only sequences from the film I actually remember. The two cats, seeking mischief, ended up getting Lady in trouble and sparking the conflict that led Lady to go off on her own in the city and, to be fair, she never would have met Tramp if they hadn't been menaces. Both Si and Am were voiced by famous singer Peggy Lee. The cats also reappeared in the straight-to-video "Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure".

4 The Brothers Grimm wrote down a story about a donkey, a dog, a cat and a rooster. In which German city did these animals defeat a gang of robbers?
Answer: Bremen

The fairy tale "The Town Musicians of Bremen" starts with the four farm animals gathering after being retired by their respective masters. They decide to go to Bremen, but on their way discover a gang of four robbers looting a cottage. The animals form a pyramid: the dog on the donkey's back, the cat climbing the dog, and of course the rooster on top of them all. When the animals all scream out on the top of their lungs, the robbers panic and flee. Now the animals take over the farm for a little repos. One of the robbers returns at night, but he is fought off by the animals: the cat claws open his face, the dog bites his leg, the donkey hits him by kicking backwards, and the rooster pecks at his eyes.
"Meow! I'm Meryl Streep, JanIQ's favourite feline. I find this story quite interesting, but usually we cats don't associate with those other animals that are far beneath our dignity."
Meryl continues: "Hamelin (Hameln in German) is known for the fairy tale of the Pied Piper hired to catch a plague of rats. Why they chose a piper instead of a number of my companions, is not clear. But in the end they would have fared better with us".
Magdeburg is the site of the experiment with the vacuum hemispheres. Nuremberg (in German Nürnberg) is another German city, best known for the Nazi party rallies and the Nazi trials. "Phew", says Meryl, "why aren't there any cats involved with these cities? It's so boring."
    Your options: [ Hamelin ] [ Bremen ] [ Magdeburg ] [ Nuremberg ]

5 The fairy tale character Puss in Boots is a wily cat who is able to act like a human and speak to people. His skills gained his owner (the youngest son of a humble miller) fine clothes, a castle, and what other prize?
Answer: The hand of a princess in marriage

In one of the simplest versions of this fairy tale, the miller in question bequeathed his mill to his eldest son, his mules to his second son and a cat to his youngest son. The youngest son had the last laugh though as the cat proved to be highly intelligent, and armed (or legged?) with just a pair of boots it ensured that he was gifted fine new clothes; gained him an introduction to the beautiful princess; and procured him a castle to live in (by turning a castle-owning ogre into a mouse and eating him). It should come as no surprise that the 'fairy tale' ending means that the newly enriched miller's son ends up married to his princess.

This tale has been told by many authors over the centuries and the basic idea of a sly cat being used to promote a person's interest probably originates from an 11th century collection of Indian folk stories. However, the most famous version (and the origins of the name 'Puss in Boots') was written by the 17th century French author, Charles Perrault.

Puss in Boots also featured as a character in the 'Shrek' series of films (excluding the original 'Shrek') before starring in his own eponymous spin-off film in 2011. In all of these films the character is voiced by Antonio Banderas.

17 Which cat featured in the live-action/CGI "Garfield: The Movie" ended up being a Siamese?
Answer: Nermal

Despite Garfield's disdain for Nermal in the long-running "Garfield" comic strip and a rivalry stretching back to the late 1970s, Nermal ended up having an underwhelming role in the live-action-ish "Garfield: The Movie" (2004) as a Siamese cat, which was never really indicated in the strip for however many years. Voiced by David Eigenberg, Nermal was, for all intents and purposes, played by a normal cat while Garfield (voiced by Bill Murray), was created with CGI. Nermal did not reappear for the sequel, "Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties".

19 What fat, orange cat danced to the music video of the Black Eyed Peas' "Hey Mama" in his first live-action(ish) movie?
Answer: Garfield

"Garfield: The Movie" showed up in theatres in 2004, twenty-six years after his debut in comic strips, though the world didn't necessarily take to his live-action version voiced by Bill Murray. Critically-panned, but still raking in a ton in the box office, the film featured Garfield, living with Jon Arbuckle, as he dealt with the introduction of Odie-- a role played by a real-life dog in the movie while Garfield himself was completely CGI-ed in. Of course, Garfield also appeared in a series of animated films over the years as well as in his animated TV show "Garfield and Friends" which aired in the 1990s.
The Black Eyed Peas don't appear in-person in "Garfield: The Movie", but their music video appearing on a TV sparks a major plot point involving Garfield and Odie dancing.

20 The Walt Disney Company released in 1970 an animated movie titled "The Aristocats". Which of the title characters takes music lessons at the piano?
Answer: Berlioz

The movie starts with an elderly lady changing her last will and testament in favour of her pet cats: Duchesse, the white mother and three kittens: Marie (white with a yellow hair band), Toulouse (ginger, wearing a blue bow tie) and Berlioz (grey/black, wearing a red bow tie). But Edgar, the butler, decides to get rid of the cats, and collect the inheritance himself.

21 Which 1978 live-action Disney film featured a cat called Jake who was actually 'Zunar-J-5/9 Doric 4-7' - a member of an advanced alien race?
Answer: The Cat from Outer Space

Jake (a much easier name than the 'alien' one that doesn't exactly trip off the human tongue) was forced to make an emergency landing on Earth when his flying saucer developed technical problems. The unlikely feline shaped visitor then set about making friends with the scientists responsible for investigating his 'Unidentified Flying Object', in order to obtain their help to repair the ship and enable his return home. However, as so often happens, things didn't go to plan and Jake was forced to remain on Earth, albeit with the comfort of an honorary citizenship and the company of a vast number of beings of very similar appearance.

The incorrect options are all live-action Disney films. 'Unidentified Flying Oddball' was released in 1979 and is based on Mark Twain's 'A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court'. 'RocketMan' was an unsuccessful 1997 film featuring Beau Bridges and 'That Darn Cat!' was a 1965 film starring Hayley Mills that was remade (minus the titular exclamation mark) with Christina Ricci in 1997.

Answer: Human resources manager

'Catbert, Evil HR Manager' ran the caption for strips featuring Catbert. 'Dilbert' creator Scott Adams came up with the idea of making a cat a HR manager because he liked the combination of cuteness and meanness. Catbert would create unreasonable and sometimes plain ludicrous office policies and threaten employees' jobs, while asking them to scratch his belly or stroke him. Like Dogbert and Dilbert, he wore glasses.

The strip ended up going on the backburner in the 2010s with most newspapers rerunning weekday strips and, eventually, Sunday strips as cartoonist Conley pulled back from the job. Bucky B. Katt is notable for having a single longer-than-normal fang.

37 The Sci-Fi TV show 'Red Dwarf' included a character who was an extremely vain and flamboyantly dressed humanoid cat - a very distant descendant of today's feline pets. By what name was this catty character known?
Answer: The Cat

The character in question was unimaginatively named The Cat (or just Cat) and had a nasty (but amusing) habit of insulting his crewmates on the 22nd century mining ship, 'Red Dwarf'. However, the programme wasn't set in the 22nd century, as the ship had been held in stasis for over 3 million years while waiting for the effects of a massive radiation leak to wear off. Only one member of the original crew, a low-ranking technician named Dave Lister, survived the trip through time - but the descendants of Lister's cat, Frankenstein, managed to spend the time creating a whole new race of cat-humans (cunningly given the designation Felis sapiens), of whom The Cat was the last example.

The incorrect options are all other characters seen in 'Red Dwarf'. Kryten was a robot, Rimmer was a hologram, and Holly was the ship's computer.

39 Not all members of the feline species are gentle and loving! Some of the big cats "play too rough," as Elvis Presley sang in a 1957 hit song. He didn't want to be a tiger or lion, but asked instead, "Let Me Be Your" what?
Answer: Teddy bear

"I don't wanna be a tiger, 'cause tigers play too rough
I don't wanna be a lion, 'cause lions ain't the kind you love enough."

Written by Kal Mann and Bernie Lowe, "(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear" was a #1 hit for Elvis Presley in 1957. It also appeared in the soundtrack of his 1957 movie, "Loving You." Perhaps if Beanie Babies had been around in the 1950s, the lyrics would've been different - Ty's wildcats are cute and cuddly enough to rival even a teddy bear.
