This classic 1980s cartoon makes a delightful return. Heathcliff, with its unforgettable theme song and witty banter, is fun for parents who grew up in the 80s to now rewatch with their kids. Though some of the jokes will go over kids' heads, they give grown-ups a reason to sit through an episode. And the adults who grew up on Heathcliff's pranks and the Catillac Cats' antics, may now be surprised to see that the show is about more than just cats; in a way, it portrays the creativity and resilience of urban culture.
