One of my favorites is Pyewacket from the movie "Bell, Book & Candle" with Jimmy Stewart and Kim Novak. I named one of my cats after him.

Don't forget Rhubarb, a move about a cat who owned a baseball team. It came out in 1951.

The New Dickson Baseball Dictionary defines rhubarb as 'a ruckus with the umpire(s)' or 'a fight between players or between the players and fans' and dates the first use in this sense to 1943.
