Farewell Downton Tabby

LADY KATIE:  Last night we bid a fond farewell to our friends at Downton Abbey. Ok, truth be told we had to DVR it, so NO SPOILERS in the comments, ok?

LORD WAFFLES: What do you mean, Boss? I don't smell anything spoiled. Do you smell something spoiled?

LADY KATIE: Spoilers, Waffles. Not spoiled.

LORD WAFFLES: I still don't smell anything. Except for maybe some of Mrs. Patmore's chicken.

LADY KATIE: In case some of you are feeling a little blue over the end of the Downton era, Waffles and I have a little something for you. An ear worm to carry you through the rest of the day.

And to the people at PBS Masterpiece– we're thinking a feline inspired sequel is in order. #DowntonTabby



What do you get when you mix Downton Abbey, Petula Clark and CATS?

*and a one, and a two, and a three... to the tune of DOWNTOWN by Petula Clark*










KATIE:  ♫♩
When you're a cat and life is making you crazy
you can always go –
DOWNTON

Waffles is driving, better hold on tight,
Or you won't make it to –
DOWNTON


WAFFLES:  ♫♩
Just listen to my song so settle down and make some biscuits.
But look both ways for coppers cause we wouldn't want a ticket.
How can we lose?
There's no traffic here,
We'll forget all our troubles, but watch out for deer.


CHORUS:  ♫♩ 
Let's go DOWNTON!
Things will be great when we're DOWNTON!
No cooler place for sure,  DOWNTON!
The dinner gong's ringing for us.

  8. Very well done. Mom and Dad watched last night but their lips are zipped. That's an earworm that we don't mind having. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  9. I watched the finale with Momma, and we loved it. It was a pawfect way to end the series, but we're still sad to see it go!!

  10. I haven't seen that show. I have heard it is very good but I am sure it could be improved with Katie and Waffles

  11. So adorable! Thank you for making me laugh--I needed it! :-) Petula Clark's song is an old favorite of mine, so it's especially fun to see the new lyrics, Lord Waffles and Lady Katie.

  13. The mom watched last night. She says she won't post any spoilers...but we think you're really gonna like it. :)

  14. I always wished that I'd gotten involved in this show...just may have to binge one day. Definitely think it would be even better starring kitties ;)

  15. We never saw the show, so we don't really get most of this. But we LOVE Waffles' out fit in that last photo.

  16. After reading the other comments, I don't feel too embarrassed to admit I have yet to watch a single episode. I do have the series saved on Netflix and if I am ever snowed-in for a month I plan on watching the whole thing. If there was a feline version that would be cat-tabulous! Katie & Waffles would be much more entertaining to watch than a bunch of Brits and I won't have trouble understanding their accents since I am fluent in meowese.

  17. Very cute post. We are going to miss Downton Tabby, I mean Abbey. :)

  18. Mum is bummed that Downton is over. At some point she will get the DVD's and binge watch it again.

  19. Never saw Downton, but I dont have a TV either so that's probably why. The blog saluting Downton Alley is just wonderful though

  20. We never watched that show. We'll wait until it gets on Amazon Prime and watch it.

  21. If your driving, Waff, you better put your paws on the wheel. Fact: Downtown was one of the first 6 45s TW ever bought.
