Viggo loves to watch TV when he gets home from school, I think it’s his way of unwinding from the pressures of the school day, so he is always on the lookout for new shows to watch, the only downside is that both himself and Tyrus have become experts at recording programmes and setting up the series link, which sounds fine but last week when I was recording a film it stopped halfway through because i had no memory left on the sky box, which is impossible as there’s loads! However it turns out that Viggo has found a couple of new shows to watch and I had approximately 150 episodes of each one recorded!!
One of his new shows that he loves is 44 Cats which he originally watched on Nick Jr and the fantastic news is that’s its now available on freeview on Pop TV, meaning plenty more children can watch these cute funny characters and his friends at school will actually know what he’s on about.
The programme focuses on 4 kittens called Lampo (viggo’s favourite), Milady, Pilou and Meatball, that make up a group called the Buffycats.
They get up to all sorts of adventures with lots of songs and crazy dances, I can hear Viggo and Tyrus giggling away when they are watching it, originally shown in Italy, now its taking the UK by storm. They live with Granny Pina in an old large house, she cooks them pasta that gives them special powers! I swear the children’s intake of pasta has increased dramatically!
There are lots of other great cats throughout the episodes, here’s a rundown of them all.
Here is the list of the Cats:
- Lampo is the lead singer and guitarist of the Buffycats. He is a tabby cat with a blue lightning symbol over his right eye. Lampo’s whiskers act like a compass, guiding him to where he needs to go.
- Milady is the Buffycats’ bassist. Her fur turns pink-purple whenever someone tells a lie.
- Pilou is the Buffycats’ drummer. She uses her enchanting wide eyes to distract the show’s villains.
- Meatball is the Buffycats’ keyboard player. He has a big appetite and can sense danger.
- Boss is Winston’s pet cat. The only animal that Winston likes, Boss is a bullying tomcat who is always trying to trick the Buffycats, but they always outsmart him.

- The Boom-Boom Steppers

- Lola is the second Boom-Boom Stepper. She is a white cat with a princess outfit. Towards the end of season 1, She becomes a mother in “Pilou the Kitten Sitter”.
