Catscratch Wiki

Tale of the Tail is the first segment of the fourth episode of Catscratch.


Gordon is depressed after Human Kimberly's friends make fun of him for his tiny tail. Mr. Blik and Waffle are going fishing, and Mr. Blik wants Gordon to go so he'll carry the cooler. Reluctant to go, Gordon is convinced by Blik to join when he makes up a magical creature called the Kraken, who will grant you a wish if you defeat him in battle. Of course, Mr. Blik knows the Kraken is not real. Or is he?


  • We learn Human Kimberly's favorite treat is candy-coated gummy unicorns.
  • To one with a sickly imagination, this episode's plot could be considered relevant to less than average male genitalia size.


  • This marks the first appearance of Caitlyns #1 and #2, as well as The Kraken.
  • The Kraken is once again seen in Hi Ho Kraken, where we learn word of his defeat took his title of "prince" away. In the same episode, Gordon defeats the Three-Headed Kraken the same way he did with the Kraken in the previous episode, flying through his three heads.


  • Hovis is never accounted for.
  • In this episode, The Kraken is shown to speak telekinetically. However, he speaks normally in "Hi Ho Kraken", as do the other krakens.
