Voice Actor David Ogden Stiers

Mr. Jolly is voiced by David Ogden Stiers. He is Leonard's cat. He's overweight and cowardly. He has a major crush on Tallulah Stickler, but his fear of the outside and her evil nature prevents romance.

Leonard's mom got Jolly from an animal shelter when he was little.


Mr. Jolly is a big blobby romantic tabby cat. He will never in his nine lives understand why Spot would wanna go to school, be rivals with his master, and go outside with animal control cops, coyotes, and traffic jams. He was raised by his mother and his father, Mr. Poppy Puttinpuss, abandoned him when he was still with his litter; his father later explained he left the family as he had no interest in the posh lifestyle his family and Mr. Jolly's mother and her relatives enjoyed.[1] Eventually, he was sent to an animal shelter as a kitten and a woman named Mary and her 5 year old son, Leonard came and adopted him. 


Jolly is a romantic, gluttonous, neurotic, lazy, and cowardly tabby. He enjoys watching TV, eating tuna fish, and using the computer. He once wrote a letter to Regina Bobalina Fancypaws, a cat fashion model. He is in love with Tallulah despite her evil nature. 

Physical Appearance

Jolly is a fat tabby cat with orange fur, a blue nose, and black stripes. He has blue sclera, just like Leonard.


Teacher's Pet

Mr. Jolly stays at home with Pretty Boy, Leonard's bird and they have adventures of their own while Scott and Leonard are at school. Too scared to leave the comfort of his home, he left the house only twice during the series, those episodes being: "Saving Mr. Jolly" and "Pet Project".

In one, Leonard brought him for pet day, while Scott brought Pretty Boy.

In another, he and Pretty Boy went to Leonard's school again because they thought they were each missing.

Teacher's Pet: The Movie

He and Pretty Boy go on a road trip to find Spot and warn him about Dr. Ivan Krank after finding out that his experiments turn animals into mutants (although, that was because Krank needed mammals to make a human). After getting lost in Cuba and arriving by a viaduct, they make it to Leonard and they find out what has happened to Spot.

When Leonard is about to turn into a dog, Spot (as a man) shows up and they warn him about Leonard going to the lab. The three then proceed to save Leonard. At the lab, Jolly is turned into a butt-ugly man for a few seconds. When Krank is turned into a mouse, Jolly chases him out the lab.

At the awards ceremony, has a plan on how to get home. He dresses up as Scott and Jolly and Pretty Boy are holding onto the RV's back ladder.
