"Long live the king!"
Mr. Blik (or simply known as Blik) is the Main Protagonist, self-appointed leader of the group who's loud, fussy, and stubborn.
A tough guy, loud, and vital, Blik is constantly in search of status. He wants, and gets, the best of everything, and flaunts it.
Like many snobs, his posturing can be a result of insecurity. Blik can also be considered an antagonist sometimes, even though in the end, he usually redeems himself.
It's told that a black cat means bad luck, and this is true for Mr. Blik, who gets himself into getting major trouble and is prone to near-death injuries.
Mr. Blik is proud of his newly inherited riches and spends his money on anything and everything that spells respect and power. Mr. Blik is the oldest and always insults his two younger brothers. Mr. Blik's catchphrases are "Yeah!", "Sucker!", or ending an exclamation with "baby!"
Nick.de Bio Edit
Der arrogante und versnobte Mr Blik ist der selbsternannte Kopf der Dreierbande.
Blik is a black color. He has two yellow eyes with black pupils.
He has two ears and one long raccoon-like tail. (TenNapel describes it as "crooked like his little heart.")
He has cockroach-like pointed ears to almost resemble antenna.
Since his fur is pitch black, there are often a few grey lines that show where his limbs and eyebrows are positioned.
Catchphrases and Running Gags Edit
Despite Waffle being the comic relief character, Mr. Blik definitely has his funny moments. The following is a list of the many running gags that have involved Mr. Blik throughout the Catscratch series.
- ", baby!" ("I've got a new attitude, baby!")
- Exclaiming how large his brain is. ("For I, and my ginormous brain...")
- Calling Gordon fat in a series of Scottish names. ("Fatty McQuid", "Tubby McThumpkins", "Bulbous McPorky")
- His enjoyment of his soft, buttery fur. ("Look at your beautiful, buttery fur!")
- "I'm drivin'!"
- His nonsensical insults. ("You cobbler-stuffed leaf monkey!", "Beaf-headed, branch-headed chumpy chumps!", "Lemur-sauced radish pole!")
- Singing about his incoming victory to the tune of "King Conga" by Dennis Farnon. ("Best house on the block, YEAH!", "This is now our world, CHA, these mountains belong to me, CHA!")
- "That doesn't MEAN anything!" (Major Pepperidge)
- "Leave me ALONE!" (A Wooly Adventure)
Differences From The Gear Comic Edit
Mr. Blik has become a little more immature in comparison to Mr. Black. Mr. Black was more straight-laced and competent.
He had no visible pupils and was kept that way in the pilot.
Mr. Black was very much the 'leader' of the four cats, being the most thoughtful and, let's say, sane one.
Well, not really... but he stays cool in heated up situations and keeps Gordon from being TOO hard on Waffle.
Just like his three brothers he is a wild but righteous guy. And he's got a pistol. What still remains of Mr. Black to Mr. Blik today is his leadership and his enjoyment of feeling bad assed.
Background Information Edit
