The anime adaptation of the award-winning manga.

Michael is a fat orange cat who lives with a pair of well-meaning but very stupid humans who fondly imagine he is their pet. But Michael's own daily life is rich in all kinds of little incidents and upheavals-avoiding local bad cat Nyazilla, a monster against whom Michael knows he'll always come out worse, scrounging food from local stores, meeting up with his animal friends, and keeping the humans amused as best he can. And Michael also has a fantasy life even his fellow feline Garfield would envy, with cat corporations, cat nightclubs, and his own imitation of a dancing American megastar also called Michael. His adventures continued in 1988 with another video and a TV series. Based on the 1984 manga in Comic Morning by Makoto Kobayashi, itself the happy musings of an indulgent pet-owner rather than the more biting satire of I Am a Cat. WM was the first show to begin on video and then transfer to TV, and it is a must for cat-lovers and fans of observational humor.
