Each story featured a dream sequence in which Waldo would imagine himself to be a famous hero, such as Catzan (Tarzan), Catman and Sparrow (Batman and Robin), The Lone Kitty (The Lone Ranger), Robin Cat (Robin Hood) and Cat Trek (Star Trek). This kind of spoof was deemed acceptable as long as an entire series is not built solely on the same concept. However, the James Thurber estate instituted legal proceedings against Filmation for infringing on the copyrights of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947). As a result, when the series was rerun as part of "The Groovie Goolies and Friends", the title was changed to "The New Adventures of Waldo Kitty" and each show's wraparound segments in which a live action cat would start to dream were removed.

This is a show I do not remember when I was young. Actually the show came out the year after I graduated high school and at that time I did not watch Saturday morning programs.
This show is on KTV every night at 7:00 pm without the commercials. I really enjoy the live action sequences. Having had cats all my life, I root for Waldo and Felicia and their friends Sparrow and Pronto. I have never seen cats be friends with birds and rabbits.
The animated sequences are not up to the live-action parts. But I must remember the show was for children not adults. I guess these jokes are to appeal to the adults who may be watching.
Still the live action sequences are very good, especially when Waldo gets the best of Tyrone the bull dog.
Remember the show is on KTV every night at 7:00 p.m. Tune in and form your own opinion.
