Henry’s Cat

He knows everything about nothing and not too much about that but if you know someone who knows what he knows then you must know Henry’s Cat

Henry’s Cat is an animated children’s television series, created by Stan Hayward and directed by Bob Godfrey, who was also the producer of Roobarb and Noah and Nelly in… SkylArk. The show starred a laid-back, ponderous yellow cat, known only as Henry’s Cat, and his many friends and enemies.

Henry’s Cat was first screened by BBC Television in the UK on 12 September 1983, and has enjoyed reruns since then. Five series were made in total (51 episodes).

Henry himself never appeared on screen; the name is thought by some to be an allusion to an earlier one-off Hayward/Godfrey collaboration, Henry 9 To 5 about a bowler-hatted commuter who escaped his boring everyday life by indulging in daydreams, mostly of a sexual nature. Henry’s Cat shared the earlier character’s tendency toward wild flights of fancy and laid-back approach to life. Henry’s Cat creator Stan Hayward included the official explanation for the character’s lack of a name on the official Henry’s Cat Special Edition DVD in 2000. The explanation was that Henry, an unseen character in the series, had been Henry’s Cat’s original owner. He had moved away, and Henry’s Cat had forgotten to go with him. He had a terrible memory, and later even forgot his own name, and so became known simply as “Henry’s Cat”.
