Minnie's cat, Figaro, first appeared as her pet in First Aiders in 1944, four years after he appeared in Pinoccchio. He would continue to appear in cartoons with Minnie and Pluto a few more times and ending with Pluto's Sweater which aired in 1949.

Roger Rabbit appeared in three other short cartoons called Roller Coaster Rabbit, Tummy Trouble, and Trail Mix-up. He naturally starred in Who Framed Roger Rabbit as well. As to which came first, the book didn't say.

  1. I totally forgot about Figaro. I remember that cute lil kitty. I don't know if I ever realized the size proportions were completely wrong. LoL As an adult, I'm horrified by how large a mouse Minnie is in order to dwarf a kitten like that. Ha!
