Klondike Kat was a cartoon produced by Total Television and originally aired as part of The Beagles on CBS-TV, and later found in the U.S. syndicated Underdog and Tennessee Tuxedo cartoon series, in between episodes as an animated short.

Plot[edit]

Klondike Kat (voiced by Mort Marshall) is an anthropomorphic wildcat mountie. Klondike is always in pursuit of Savoir-Faire (voiced by Sandy Becker), a French-Canadian mouse who constantly steals food and is known for his catch phrase, "Savoir-Faire is everywhere!"[1] Savoir-Faire is accompanied by his sled dog Malamutt.

Klondike Kat lives in Fort Frazzle and answers to commanding officer Major Minor (modeled after Terry-Thomas, and voiced by Kenny Delmar).

Klondike, though well-meaning, is naturally incompetent and usually causes more trouble than Savoir-Faire in trying to stop him ("I'll make mincemeat out of that mouse!"); yet, at the end of each episode, Klondike would "get his mouse" somehow ("Klondike Kat always gets his mouse.").[2]
