Cat Head Theatre

Date: 2002
Posted by: nakedrabbit
Credits: Directed by Tim Maloney for Naked Rabbit, John Hoffhines cat wrangler and composer
Cast: John Over (Hamlet)
Duration: 3.29

Engaging spoof of the Masterpiece Theatre-style of TV theatre presentation (complete with avancular introduction), with cut-out animation of cats performing part of Hamlet, Act 2 Scene 2, where Hamlet meets with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. The witty presentation (which may owe something to the cut-out cat style made famous by Joel Veitch’s Rather Good site) and the eccentric quality of the verse-speaking make this stand out from the usual Shakespearean tomfoolery. One of the most viewed of Shakespeare productions on YouTube.
