MAD CAT



Hi everyone, Katie here.

Glogirly's been watching the AMC television show called Mad Men lately.  It's a drama about New York's prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the 1960's.  It features a bunch of sour, dramatic and often boring ad executives, all impeccably dressed and coifed, against a sleek midcentury modern backdrop.

There's a special Mad Men website called 'Mad Men Yourself' that helps you build your own Mad Men avatar of your human.  You can pick their hairstyle, outfit and all the accessories.  You can even pick the background set.  Once you've built your new MadMen cartoon human, you can download it to your computer or directly to Facebook.

Mad Men characters L-R:  Peggy, Pete (he's a jerk), Joan, Glogirly, Don Draper (the star) and Roger Sterling (the only one with a sense of humor.)  That's me, the cat.

Sadly, there are no cats in MadMen.  I know.  It's an inexcusable flaw.  So Glogirly did a little Photoshop magic to put me into her set.  She also cheated and used her own cartoon face.  I swear, the girl just can't leave anything alone.  Hmmm...sounds strangely familiar...

So if you're feeling a little MadMen-ish,  or MadCat-ish... just click HERE and you can make one for your human.  Share it with us on Facebook too!

  1. The woman loves Mad Men so perhaps she will have to try it.

  2. Oh wow, my mom is hooked on the show too! We were hissed off at the episode a long time ago where a woofie didn't get treated well. We hissed at that episode....other than that, we tolerate her watching it.

  3. This whole thing sounds so flawed... the no cats thing, first off. And my human hates midcentury - she prefers 1920s for vintage. Why can't they make a show about 1920s, high-flying stock moguls? And include cats. My human would totally build an avatar for that.

  4. Our human watches it all the time even though we have protested loudly the lack of feline characters. We might let her try the link.

  21. Hollywood loves ad agencies as employment places for characters. The mom was production manager for several years at a couple agencies. She hasn't seen Mad Men, but she's yet to see a show that is really like working at an agency. Its really hard work and the grind of deadlines in unrelenting. She's sure glad she isn't doing that any more!

  23. OH MY CAT! Cool graphic! Mommy sez, "wow, after reading the comments, how many cat peeps are - or were - connected to agency life?" She wonders, like Oui Oui, how accurate the show can really be. Is depiction of glass ceiling accurate? (ugh)
