Sam Cat is a character from the Looney Tunes series.

He is a clever orange cat, and Sylvester's rival, who first appeared in "Putty Tat Trouble".


In the early 50s, he was originally a mute cat with a bad eye. In "Tweet and Sour", he had an eye-patch. But starting with "Trick or Tweet", his personality became more dim-witted, and was given a voice by Daws Butler imitating Frank Fontaine.

He is very intelligent and treacherous on issues such as food and hunt (to catch Tweety for example) as shown in "Mouse and Garden" with Sylvester.



  • This character is not to be confused for the Nickelodeon TV series, Sam & Cat.
  • His voice is very similar to that of Pete Puma, although Stan Freberg (the original voice of the Pete Puma character) had never voiced Sam Cat during his lifetime.
  • In the book, I Tawt I Taw A Puddy Tat: Fifty Years of Sylvester and Tweety, it is shown in early storyboards of "Trick or Tweet" that Sam is meant to be the same cat from "Putty Tat Trouble", "Tweet and Sour" and "The Honey-Mousers".
