|~ Mr. Tinkles' famous catchphrase.|
Mr. Tinkles is the central antagonist of the Cats & Dogs franchise. He is the main antagonist of the first film, and a supporting antagonist of the second film. He is a selfish, cruel, ruthless and pompous cat who has a hatred of dogs and will stop at nothing to make people everywhere be allergic to dogs.
He is voiced by Sean Hayes.
Cats & Dogs
Mr. Tinkles first appeared when he and his henchman were discussing about the dog being out of the way. To break in the lab and prevent the anti-allergy dog formula from being created, he sent in cat ninjas and later the russian. After both adversaries failed, the formula was eventually completed.
Mr. Tinkles learns this and then he and his cat henchmen drove to a Christmas building factory (pretending to be Mr. Mason) and fired all the human workers in order to take over the factory. He also took Lou's human family hostage and demanded that Lou must deliver the formula and all it's notes or the family would "be put to sleep". Just as he did, the cats took it and Mr. Tinkles refused to let the family go.
At the factory, Mr. Tinkles summoned thousands of mice to work for him. Just then, Lou, Butch, and the other dogs arrived just in time to stop Mr. Tinkles. Mr. Tinkles rode on a crane and used the claw as a weapon. He caught Butch and attempted to crush him in the shredder, but Lou defeated him by firing a snow gun at him and was presumed dead when the factory blew up. However, he survived the blow-up and was taken into custody by his maid owner to live with her and her sisters and wore a lot of costumes.
Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore
He returns in the 2010 sequel, but Kitty Galore had taken his place as the main antagonist. Instead, Mr. Tinkles (arguably) acts as the tertiary antagonist. He is detained on Alcatraz Island, and, alongside the creepy prisoner in the cell next to him, is a reference to Hannibal Lecter. He gives the group of animals a riddle on what to do about Kitty Galore. After her defeat, it was reported that Mr. Tinkles escaped.
