I recently discovered the animated series Kid vs. Kat currently showing on Disney XD. It's about a cat who has come to Earth from an alien feline world. Unfortunately I'm still catching up on the backstory so there's a lot I don't know. It is, however, lots of fun watching the cartoon mayhem that results as "Mr. Kat" tries to fulfill his mission and his exo-feline wishes in secret whilst living with a very odd family. A cross-purpose fixation is Kat's love of "Fishy Frisky Bits" cat food. Only the young boy of the family, "Coop," has any inkling of the diabolical workings of the hairless feline's mind and the full scope of his alien powers. In classic cartoon style, however, the rivalry between Kid and Kat goes both ways.
Washington Post Writers Group has announced that Berkeley Breathed’s Opus will end syndication on November 2. "With the crisis in Wall Street and Washington, I'm suspending my comic strip to assist the nation" Breathed declared. "The best way I can help is to leave politics permanently and write funny stories for America's kids. I call on John McCain to join me."
