People sey Pete is a cat, I perssonly think his more of a Dog and Now I
found out theat he was orginally a Bear.

I remember theat olsow in some old/erly Mickey Mouse cartoons Pete he have a
Tale and now it's gone.

A Bear evol's in to a Cat... Sound like some sort of a Pokemon.

For me moust desterbing part is theat Pete had a Peg leg and letter his
normal leg it grown back.
