Like millions of people, I had seen one of the animations by Simon Tofield about a cat on YouTube. I didn't know that this hilarious cat had become an industry for Mr. Tofield, resulting in even more animations, books and now, he's replacing a British icon! A comic strip version of Simon's Cat will replace Andy Capp in the Daily Mirror.
EDIT: My friend, UK cartoonist Royston Robertson, in the comments section below, tells me Capp is staying and Simon's Cat is part of a Mirror comics page revision. Please take a look at his link.
Above: one of the more recent Simon's Cat shorts. You can see how much animator/cartoonist Simon Tofield understands about cat behavior. Some very funny stuff here and well worth a viewing ... or re-viewing.
