Figaro Sitting

Figaro is Geppetto's and Minnie Mouse's cat. Figaro was created for the 1940 film Pinocchio but like so many characters from the film, Figaro became a popular character with the audiences and given his own series of shorts as well as costarring in a few Pluto shorts as Minnie Mouse's pet cat.

His roles in the shorts were often dealing with him being heroic although one short had Figaro in an antagonistic role, in which Minnie designed a sweater for Pluto and the other animals laughed uproariously at Pluto for being made to wear it, mostly Figaro. When water shrinks the sweater, Minnie then realizes it is a perfect fit for Figaro. The sketch ends with Figaro angrily snarling that he is now in the sweater he enjoyed bullying Pluto over, thus the lesson being "he who laughs last laughs best".


Figaro is adorable Tuxedo Cat of kindly woodcarver Geppetto. Geppetto finishes his latest puppet, Pinocchio, and makes the wooden boy dance and play with Figaro. Figaro eventually gets annoyed with the puppet as the puppet mischievously kicks him in the behind, and smacks its foot. When the Blue Fairy brings Pinocchio to life, however, Figaro is not too shocked to see a living puppet and quickly takes a liking to the living Pinocchio. When Pinocchio doesn't return home on the night of his first day going to school, Figaro, Geppetto, and the goldfish Cleo leave their home to search for the wooden boy.

Figaro and the others are later eaten by a large whale named Monstro. Pinocchio, also swallowed by the whale, finds them and creates a plan to escape by making a fire. The plan succeeds but not without a deadly chase that ends with Pinocchio giving his life to save Geppetto. At home, Gepetto, Figaro, and the others mourn Pinocchio's death, when the Blue Fairy brings Pinocchio back to life as a real boy. The family, including Figaro, rejoice and celebrate the miraculous event.
