Kitty Cameo: An orange tabby cat (played by veteran cat actor Orangey) sneaks into the window of Genius’ lab and takes a taste of the new formula the kid Genius has created.
Moments later Genius’ sister Nancy (Charla Doherty) and her boyfriend (Tommy Kirk) look on as the cat almost immediately grows to gigantic proportions and threatens them all.
After being annoyed by Genius’ barking dog, the cat leaves the lab and is not seen again in the film.
Final Mewsings: “Lost: Orange Tabby Cat – 20 Feet Tall. Reward if found.”
