Heathcliff may live in his own world but apparently his comic exists in the same universe as a lot of other cartoon characters. You may remember this comic from the very first post:

So many questions:

  1. Why does Heathcliff have a cabinet full of the heads of various cartoon cats?
  2. Where did he acquire these cat heads?
  3. Why is only Garfield’s head colored in?
  4. Why does grandma not think this is weird?
  5. What’s Heathcliff’s game plan for wearing Felix’s head?
  6. What does feeling Felix mean?
  7. Which of these cartoon cats do you think that Heathcliff would most/least get along with?
  8. Do you think Heathcliff would drive Garfield to suicide? I do.
  9. Why did the cartoonist think decide to draw all these other characters?
  10. Is this a dis-comic to all the other artists out there? Is he like, “Yo, I just called you out, Kendrick Lamar style. Come at me.”?

Anyway, Heathcliff also rolls with famous Muppets.crhea131113

I find this cartoon the most hard to believe. Do you think Oscar the Grouch would be remotely pleased with Heathcliff’s brand of bullshit? I think not. Also, the garbage men would not be pleased to see Heathcliff, the cat who makes their jobs harder by just destroying everything and spreading garbage all over AND Oscar, who yells at them every time they come near his garbage can.

I wonder how Heathcliff and Oscar know each other, anyway. I find it difficult to believe no one from Sesame Street banned Heathcliff. And, let’s be honest, Heathcliff probably murdered Mr. Hooper. Or at least harassed him in his final days. Heathcliff definitely would try to eat Big Bird and Grover would be like, “I need to be faaaaaaaaaar from Heathcliff. Not neeeeeeear him.” Heathcliff wouldn’t mess with Cookie Monster though. No one would.

For Halloween 2013, we got a week of amazing comics. Including this one:

No damn way that Charlie Brown would go near Heathcliff. Good grief. But again, why did the cartoonist randomly draw this?

Cats Be Real Creeperish.

My younger cousin hates cats. I thought it was because he’s severely allergic to them. Turns out, it’s for a deeper reason. My cousin explained, “Yo, cats be real creeperish. They be rubbin’ up on you like uninvited houseguests, then they just leave like nothing happened.”

A few things:
1. Dogs hump legs.
2. What kind of uninvited houseguests does my cousin have? If an uninvited houseguest rubs up on you, that’s probably a break-in. Only a Minnesotan would call a break-in/molestation “an uninvited houseguest.”
3. Should the cat stick around for a while? What cat hurt him?

Still, my cousin has a point. And nothing underscores this point better than the creeperish stuff Heathcliff be doing.

Here, Heathcliff partakes in some good, ol’ fashioned street harassment. crhea071008

 

The weird part is that the construction workers aren’t giving “The New Kid” grief for needing to be “mentored” by a cat.  In other news, what’s up with the legs of those two construction workers? It looks like they have paddles for legs.

Wait, does Heathcliff work for the construction company? That would explain where he gets all his money. Also, it brings into question the structural integrity of the entire town of Westfinster.

Aren’t all cats metrosexual by default? Have you ever been around a cat? Diva/os, ALL of them.

But back to Heathcliff’s creeperish behavior…

Heathcliff has taught himself to play the fife and he has composed a “nut song”. Look, I’m not animal expert but I’m pretty sure that squirrels aren’t drawn toward the sound of fifes. Also: “nut song” looks/sounds like some type of hazing invented by frat boys. If I had to guess which frat Heathcliff belonged to, I’d say DKE.

Oh my stars, “nut song” IS a frat thing. From Urban Dictionary:

A song played by someone to celebrate getting a nut. It is traditionally played early in the morning in a fraternity house as the girl is leaving in order to A.) wake up your neighbors to let them know you got a nut, and B.) alert your boys so they have a chance to check her out as she leaves. It is also typically a really funny/goofy song, eg. the YMCA song, or Jump (For My Love).

Yup, Heathcliff is totally a DKE bro.

The more I learn about Heathcliff, the more I think he’s one of those “pick-up artist” bros. Heathcliff probably ghostwrote The Game.

Heathcliff probably wants to copyright his pick-up lines because he still hasn’t been compensated for being the real author or The Game. Yup, you heard it here first, Neil Strauss didn’t write The Game, Heathcliff the Cat did.

I don’t understand why Clio, Heathcliff’s girlfriend, puts up with him. Also, I don’t understand why all these lady cats are standing peacefully outside, waiting for Heathcliff. If his pick-up lines were that good, those cats would be fighting with each other. Unless, all those cats are scorned women, planning on killing Heathcliff as soon as he exists the law firm.

Also: there’s an intellectual property law firm in Westfinster that has cat clientele.

Finally, there’s this gem from a 9-11 a few years ago.

Heathcliff is an independent contractor for the Westfinster Dog Catcher. Why don’t they catch cats? Good question. Anyway, given what we know about independent contractors and the town of Westfinster, it’s safe to say there’s little-to-no oversight. Heathcliff just drives around in his “spank van” delivering vigilante puppy justice, all with the blessing of The Man. Enabling-ass humans.
