Catscratch Wiki

Scaredy Cat is the second segment of the ninth episode of Catscratch.


Gordon refuses to celebrate Halloween due to his superstitions surrounding the holiday, meanwhile a couple of aliens mistake the cats' redecorated house as The Lost Mother Ship.


  • Parts of this episode's title card are used again in a promotional image for the show, which replicates a scene in "Gordon's Lucky Claw" where the cat brothers are cornered by a Meteor Worm.
  • The part where Mr. Blik and Waffle are stuck to the ceiling in a cocoon, and something is ready to explode from inside Waffle's chest is a reference to the Alien franchise.
  • This episode was ranked as #25 on the Top 100 Greatest Nicktoon Episodes. However, it lost to the Sweet Victory moment from the SpongeBob SquarePants episode, Band Geeks.
  • This was the last episode to air in 2005.

The Characters Coustumes:



Mayor...... Mary (Mary has a little lamb)

Human Kimberly....Witch

Chumpy Chump Brothers....(Wore scary plastic masks)


  • This marks the first (and only) appearance of Quebafarb and Zinkogorb.
  • When Quebafarb and Zinkogorb terrorize The Chumpy Chump Brothers, the encounter must've sparked some interest with Tad, as he is seen enjoying a magazine about aliens in a subsequent episode, "Two of A Kind".
  • From this episode forward, Brick is now credited as Lunk.
  • The guns that Quebafarb and Zinkogorb fire are similar to the gun Mr. Blik used in the episode “Lovesick” of an electric net as ammo.


  • Tad's nose resembles an eggplant in the shot where they demand candy from the alien duo, whereas his nose is normally shaped like a diamond.
  • When Waffle looks up at the alien duo after Blik gets cocooned, their shirt colors are switched.
  • When Gordon is dashing across the hallway shouting, "Why couldn't you have listened to me about this accursed day?!" the layer that had his mouth disappears for a frame.
    Gordon Without His Mouth

    Gordon without his mouth.

  • When Gordon says "Evil has come to cocoon us", an editing error shows a cropped frame of Hovis as Sachiko from the episode before the previous one, "Big Eyed Bunny".
    Bunny Hovis in Scaredy Cat Editing Error

    The editing error taken from an American broadcast.

    • This error seems to only be present on American broadcasts.
    • A similar error happens in a later version of "Clan Destiny" with a frame from "A Wooly Adventure"
      • This was because of a last-minute edit in that episode, so that means there might be two differing versions of "Scaredy Cat" too.
  • In this episode's ending credits, the fifth period away from Liliana Mumy's name is a comma.
