Cat Burglar: Revolutionizing how you watch cartoons
Developed by the minds that brought us Black Mirror, Cat burglar is an interactive cartoon coming to Netflix that blends the look of Tex Avery’s Looney Tunes with the viewer-led experience of episode Bandersnatch (2018) from Black Mirror.
In the show, the viewers must answer trivia questions to help Rowdy Cat beat the Peanut the Security pup, break into the museum, and steal prized paintings. The show can be played multiple times, and with each turn, you unlock previously unseen sequences, keeping the excitement of gameplay fresh. According to Netflix, you can play the game a hundred times and still never encounter the same cartoon twice.
