TV-series Billy the Cat

Directed by Jean-Pierre Jacquet


Billy the Cat tells a story about a little bad boy who met a wizard who turned him into a cat, so the boy would feel what it is like to be the victim for once. In this episode his cat-mentor Sir Hubert makes fun of an ancient legend known to all cats: back in ancient Egypt a cat named Hubisis once rebelled against the mighty queen Catapatra, who ruled with the help of a mighty cat-eye amulet. Hubisis managed to escape, but as a revenge Catapatra put a curse on all his descendents. Sir Hubert doesn't believe in this fairytale, but he soon discovers that he himself is a descendent of Hubsis, as he is kidnapped by the powerful cat Eartha, follower of queen Catapatra. To punish him Catapatra want to make him a living mummy. Of course Billy and Queenie come to the rescue. By stealing the amulet, thus robbing Catapatra of her powers, they manage to free Sir Hubert.
