So, in the 1960s or so a little book was written and made into a Disney classic. I bet you can guess what that was.
Later, much later, it was made into a TV series which was... derivative. The kind of thing that you know was made just to cash in on things.
One of the characters in that derivative sequel was called Cadpig. odd choice of name I always thought. Now it turns out that one of the animators suggested this name, for a very curious reason.
You see 101 Dalmatians the book has a sequel.
In that book all creates bar dogs on earth fall asleep, this is caused by an alien dog Sirius, from the dog star (Geddit?!) he has come to take all dogs from earth before humans nuke themselves to bits. A better plot summary is here: [link]
Notably it stars a dalmatian puppy that forms a new british govenrment on account of being the Prime Minister's pet. The name of this pup? Cadpig.
So it seems said animator decided to make a character as new age and hippy as he beleived the author of that book to be, explaining both the odd name and behavior of that TV show character. I am impress. (Both in the animator and the fact that people who work making a ripoff of a classic can find themselves shocked at a ripoff of a classic.)
And now, a scorpion eating mouse that squeaks at the moon: [link]
(That's a scary video if'n you're a bug!)
