Q: In the movie Pinocchio, there is a cat named Figaro. In some a Mickey cartoons with Pluto and in the Disney Jr. show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse there is a cat who looks exactly like him and his name is Figaro. Is it the same cat? If so, why is he used in the Mickey cartoon/show?

A: Figaro made his debut in Pinocchio, but he was so popular that Walt Disney used him in seven short cartoons, including two with Figaro in the title: Figaro and Frankie and Figaro and Cleo. He has also appeared in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Minnie’s Bow-Toons.
