TV show description:
Inspired by characters from The Phil Silvers Show, this animated series follows the adventures of con-artist Top Cat (Arnold Stang) –TC to his close friends — and his gang of Manhattan alley cats.
The gang members are right-hand “man” Choo Choo (Marvin Kaplan), romantic Fancy-Fancy (John Stephenson), jazz-loving Spook (Leo De Lyon), dim-witted Brain (Leo De Lyon), and innocent Benny the Ball (Maurice Gosfield).
Top Cat and his gang are frequently involved in small-time scams, much to the frustration of local Police Officer “Charlie” Dibble (Allen Jenkins).
