And now, from the heart of Megakat City, here’s every kat’s favorite late-night comedian, David Litterbin!


David Litterbin was a comedian and host of The David Litterbin Show. He has a sidekick named Fuzzy, His show is a favorite of Jake Clawson, while Chance just doesn’t get it and prefers the cartoon shorts of Scaredy-Kat. On at least one occassion, a fan has accused Litterbin of being a SWAT Kat, a theory that was dissproved shortly afterward when the SWAT Kats saved Litterbin from the wrath of Litterbin’s old rival Lenny Ringtail (who was possessed by the ghost of Madkat). Whilst Ringtail wanted revenge on Litterbin because the other comedian had stolen his job, Madkat wanted him because he conflated him with the original court jester in medieval times who had taken Madkat’s place in the king and queen’s court. Whether this means Litterbin is the descendant of the jester is unknown.

He, Callie Briggs, Mayor Manx and Commander Feral (or “the queen,” “king” and “knight,” as Madkat called them) were all imprisoned inside of a magical kat-in-the-box, but set free when T-Bone defeated Madkat and separated him from Ringtail’s body. After the incident, Litterbin, running behind schedule, had a show to tape that day but no guests lined up, looked down at the unconscious Ringtail and got an idea. Later, late night viewers were stunned to see a straitjacketed but thoroughly pleased Lenny Ringtail plugging his upcoming autobiography “Madkat and Me” on Litterbin, while David Litterbin himself lamented that his audience must think he was crazy to have his former enemy on as a guest. “Hey, you’d be crazy not to!” Ringtail assured him.


He is based on actual talk show host and comedian David Letterman, and the storyboards indicate he is intended to sound like comedy Garry Shandling.
