    Part of the logo for MTM or Mary Tyler Moore Enterprises, a television production company (1969-1998)
    Also known simply as 'the MTM kitten'
    Appeared at the end of TV shows such as 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show,' 'WKRP in Cincinnati,' 'Newhart' and 'Remington Steele'
    Owned by a staff member and lived in San Fernando Valley, California
    She originated as a spoof of MGM's Leo the Lion.
    Her famous meow is rather plaintive.
    She was sometimes called 'Dick Turpin' and 'Dick Marino.'
    When MTM was acquired by 20th Century Fox Television, she was dropped from the end of most MTM shows.
    She was rescued from an animal shelter to be MTM’s mascot.
    She was customized for many shows, wearing a surgical mask for 'St. Elsewhere' and a police hat for 'Hill Street Blues' for example.
    Unlike Leo who was actually several different lions, only one cat ever served as the MTM kitten.
    She may have been the inspiration behind UBU Production's Ubu Roi.
