"He drives around
all over town
The driving cat!"
Toonces was The Cat Who Could Drive A Car
, the puppet
star of a recurring Saturday Night Live skit
in the late 80s and early 90s. Like so many skits in on SNL
, it was a one note joke, and it was beat into the ground again and again. It usually went like this: a couple discusses reservations about having their cat drive the car. See, he drives, but not well. They finally get in the car, and everything seems fine, until – "TOONCES, LOOK OUT!
" Cut to stock footage
of a car going off of a cliff.
You’d think people would stop getting in the car with that damn cat.
