Space Cats is an American cartoon series for television (with some live-action puppetry sequences) that aired on NBC in 1991. It is a comedy show about alien felines helping mankind. It was created by Paul Fusco, the creator (and voice) of ALF. As of 2019 Space Cats never had a DVD release.


The Space Cats come from a planet called Trygliceride-7, ruled by a being named D.O.R.C. (short for Disembodied Omnipotent Ruler of Cats) which can be described as a disembodied, bespectacled, human head with a funny voice. The Space Cats station themselves on Earth in an underground base with a garbage can as its only access.

D.O.R.C. describes each mission to the team's leader Captain Catgut and sends the team of Tom, Scratch and Sniff out to work. At the end of each episode, the group gives the viewers a moral, then wrap up the episode vocalizing the Charge music and shouting out their team name.

Tagline: "They're furry, they're friendly, they're housebroken"
