    Cats 1998: What Is Kittens Part One

    So, this is actually more of a way of determining the various age groups of characters. It’s more than just kittens and adults. There are several different subcategories.

    I’ll start by saying that different sources perceive Electra, Etcetera, George, Jemima, Mistoffelees, Mungojerrie, Plato, Pouncival, Rumpleteazer, Tumblebrutus, and Victoria as kittens. All of them come across as “baby” sometimes and none of them seem to recognize Grizabella. In some other productions, but usually not 1998, Alonzo, Coricopat, and Tantomile are also seen as “baby”. But, they’re all over the place.

    Part 1: Gumbie Cat

    So, everyone gets in place for the first musical number. Bomba, Demeter, and Jellylorum get in place to sing as the Gumbie Trio, while Munkustrap gathers everyone else in a loose circle around him:

    Mistoffelees, who is about to embarrass himself, is also standing. Etcetera, Victoria, Electa, Jemima, and Mungojerrie are on one side, while Rumpleteazer, Cassandra, and Alonzo or on the other. Further in the back behind Alonzo are Plato and Tumblebrutus, while Coricopat and Tantomile are in the far back, in front of the car. Munk acts like he’s putting on a show for the kittens here, but several cats that are not considered kittens are also there. Also, George and Pouncival are missing. There’s always at least one missing. This is what happens when you try herding cats.

    Now, jump from the beginning of the number to the end:

    A bunch of cats congratulate Jenny on her performance. This includes the Gumbie Trio, with Jellylorum just offscreen, as well as Skimble and Asparagus. These are The Adults. Munkustrap also goes into this category. Asparagus, Bombalurina, Demeter, Jellylorum, Jennyanydots, Munkustrap, and Skimbleshanks are the responsible adults of the group. Jenny, Jelly, Skimble, and Asparagus come across as a bit older than the other three.

    The other adult characters, as well as most of kittens and maybe kittens were part of the Beetles Tattoo and are either hanging around in the background or offstage changing. So, there’s a reason why Alonzo, Cassandra, and the Psychic Twins are missing.

    Part 2: The Rum Tum Tugger

    I don’t have any screenshots for this one, since I don’t feel like I really need them.

    Tugger is a controversial figure among the Jellicle Cats, especially the older ones. So, his presence sorts everyone into groups.

    Out of the characters usually considered adults, Bombalurina, Cassandra, and the Twins all like Tugger. In most productions I’ve scene, Demeter is also a Tugger fan, but in this production, she’s not comfortable with him. Meanwhile, Munk and Alonzo are Not Amused, but they’re calm about it. They mostly wait out the number in the background. Strangely, Alonzo is part of Tugger’s group at the ball, so maybe his feelings are a bit more mixed.

    Skimble, Jelly, Jenny, and Asparagus, the oldest of the adults, are all some combination of enraged, disgusted, and horrified by Tugger’s antics. Skimble even tries to stop some of the younger cats from joining.

    As for the younger characters, almost all of them love Tugger. He’s their rockstar. Mungojerrie is absent during the number, for some reason. This is odd, because he’s usually in it, often trying to copy Tugger’s moves. Here, Jerrie and Teazer, still in Beetle costumes, see Tugger show up and they both run offstage. Teazer later comes back, but Jerrie doesn’t. Maybe he did something to piss Tugger off the other day.

    The only young cat against Tugger is Mistoffelees, who rolls his eyes and calls him a bore. He spends the rest of the number sulking in the corner. After the number, during the instrumental reprise, Misto gets up and joins the dance party. The older cats chase Tugger around, trying to shut everything down, and Skimble stops by Misto and seems very disappointed in him, but he no longer cares. The order of events makes it look like Misto got annoyed with Tugger for kicking a ball at him, and generally just finds him annoying, and he wants the approval of the adults, so he insults Tugger and storms off. But, when Tugger gathers his fans, pelvic thrusts in their faces, and shows off his ass, Misto pays attention, though he might’ve just been annoyed by the girls screaming. And immediately after that display, Misto joins the party. Was he convinced that Tugger isn’t a terrible bore by watching his ass? 

    Anyway, the young people love Tugger, the older adults don’t, and the ones in-between are split. Tugger himself plays of Bombalurina on equal footing. He isn’t just another fangirl. That means they’re probably the same age, so Tugger’s one of The Adults.

    So:

    Adults: Asparagus, Bombalurina, Demeter, Jelly, Jenny, Munk, Skimble, Tugger

    Younger Adults?: Alonzo, Cassandra, Coricopat, Tantomile

    Kittens/Maybe Kittens: Electra, Etcetera, George, Jemima, Misto, Jerrie, Plato, Pouncival, Teazer, Tumblebrutus, Victoria

    By connecting with the adults and going against Tugger, Misto might be a little older than some of the others.

    This turned out to be way more exhausting to write than I thought, so I’m splitting this into parts. Part Two should at least cover Grizabella and Bustopher.

    #cats the musical #asked and answered #ride-a-dromedary#alonzo#mungojerrie#rumpleteazer#my headcanons #The idea of these two being the most constant presence in Alonzo's life just... hit me out of the blue. #Before he met Demeter probably even before he met Bomba and before he reunited with Gus and Jellylorum #there were these two little hellions. XD #He never expected to love them as much as he does but he's the one cat they can always count on in their corner. #And I feel like Alonzo would have Many Thoughts and Feelings about that moment during the Macavity fight #where Mungojerrie actually stands up and takes a swing at Macavity. #Everyone must have known how much that would have taken but Alonzo *knows* #and he'd be the first person to come up to Jerrie and Teazer once the dust settles and tell them 'You did good.' <3

    Demeter BroTP for Demeter week: Mungometer!

    Lisette Garzón and Dante Hernández, Mexico 2013 (X)

    2013 again: he doesn't know what to do about this whole 'Demeter being carried off' situation...

    By 2018... she's kind of resigned. And he has 'well, this is awkward' face. (Carolina Laris and Dante Hernández, with Erny Crúz as Macavity, X)

    It's okay, they sorted it out. (Shava Coronel and Sonia Monroy, 2018; X)

    And because M&R are a package deal...

    Demeter can have a little Teazer love too. As a treat.

    (Carolina Laris and Mariela Baquiero, 2018 X)

    Macavity: Pfft, you should meet Demeter, she's such a tsundere. Mungojerrie: She... she just stabbed you. Macavity: So cute.

    The type of Fanfictions that the characters of Cats would write:

    Munkustrap: He tends to write fluff as a way to bring his stress levels down. He tends to write one-shots but does occasionally multi-chapter.

    Rum Tum Tugger- He doesn't have a set genre or fandom, but a lot of what he writes is smut.

    Mungojerrie and Rumpleteazer- They write multi-chapter crack fics that do make sense and don't make sense at the same time.

    Tumblebrutus- He only writes wild west AU’s. I'm not explaining this.

    Demeter- She writes hurt/comfort and projecting way too much on her characters.

    Mr. Mistoffeless- All of his stories take place in the omegeverse. His stories are either fluff or PWP, with no in-between.

    Victoria- She tends to write self-inserts and stories in the second person. Also, she only posts on Wattpad.

    Bombalurina- Her fanfics have very explicit violence and sex but she is very friendly when interacting with her readers.

    Cassandra- She writes slow burns where it takes 400k words for the characters together. Every time someone asks her when the characters are getting together she adds another 10k.

    Macavity- All of his stories are incomplete and end on cliffhangers; he last posted in August 2018. Also, he wrote the story wherein your favorite character died.

    Hello welcome to it’s 3am and my brain decided to give me ideas for stories.

    Mungocavity’s First Date: Mungojerrie brings Macavity to an abandoned theme park. Both find it pretty cool until a clown starts chasing them around. 

    Plot twist; Rumpleteazer had found out about their date and decided to be a little shit and chase them around dressed as a clown.

    Macavity: *about Old Deuteronomy* He's trying to prove that he's closer to my children than I am, but the joke’s on him, because he doesn't know how little I care for Mistoffelees.

    Mungojerrie: I think that makes the joke on Mr. Mistoffelees.
