Chance/Feral Whisker Styles

Postby Cody Furlong » Tue May 02, 2017 10:27 am

I noticed that Chance and Commander Feral have the same whisker styles. Is it just coincidence, or is that the popular 'cop stache' of the Enforcer pilots?

Chance seems to trim his whiskers. Feral appears to wax his. And they aren't the only ones.

Other characters with short whiskers or waxed whiskers:

Mayor Manx:

Jonny:

Morbulus:
Image

Katscratch:
Image

The Blue Manx:

Evil!T-Bone (obviously):

Just seems to be the show's overall way of saying "they have whiskers."

I've never seen any Kats with long ones.

Is it me or does Katscratch bear a striking resemblance to Feral? Like an older, fatter version? Starts stirring some interesting narrative in my head. Like what if Feral was from a crime family and he hated it so he over-corrected and became a straighter-than-an-arrow, by-the-book lawman? This could fuel why he hates dealing with scum or doesn't want to owe any "hoods" anything. What if he was a former hood himself? He could certainly look the part if he changed clothes.





...PS. Feral looks like he GELS his whiskers 6_6

You need to watch the show more often, then.

Long and medium-length whiskers:

Dr. Viper:
Image

Dr. Zyme:
Image

Chauffeur:
Image

Al:
Image

Nuclear Plant Guards:
Image

Professor Hackle:
Image

Fango:
Image

Mobsters:
Image

Dr. Konway:
Image

Homeless Kat:
Image

Dr. Ohm:
Image

As the series progressed, they seemed to have gradually stopped giving them whiskers altogether, as a good deal of the kats in season two have no whiskers, long or otherwise.

None of the girls have them... did they just not grow them in this world or they get theirs fully clipped down? XD

Also, I'd love to see a long haired kat. A big ol floofy kitty guy sometime. LOL

There's a goodly amount of male characters with longish hair.

Hackle's hair would go all the way down his back if it didn't curl up the way it does.

Image

Zyme's hair is likewise longer than it looks due to the curls, although not as long as Hackle's.

Image

And Greenbox effectively has shoulder-length hair.. which also curls up in a manner similar to Hackle and Zyme's. Was this a "theme" for science kats in season one?

Image

Purvis also has longish hair, which makes me wonder how it all transmogrified into the Viper radish 'do. ViperLaughCait

The length, however, varies from scene to scene.

Image
Image

There's also a few long-haired side and background characters, particularly the male volleyball players in When Strikes Mutilor.

Image

As well as the islander in Volcanus Erupts!

Image

The construction worker who hits the Talisman Stone also has a pretty rad mop.

Image

And how can we forget Fuzzy?

Koosh: HA, I stand corrected*

The hair tho. Well, it was the early 90s which is mullet and mop era bleeding over from the 80s.

I've been told I still dress my characters kind of 90s with the sleeves rolled up to the elbows and the not quite skinny jeans on my guys =/

One such offender is Tab Mouser. And they apparently couldn't decide whether he should have giant sideburns or not.
