Cats Don't Dance characters
Sawyer is the female feline of the film. She is tough, hard working, who has a talent of singing and dancing. But she had given up her dreams because Hollywood only looks for Talented people, not animals. But with Danny's help, she fulfills her dream, and the two fall in love at the end of the film.

Danny is a cat from a small town (Kokomo, Indiana), with big dreams to become a famous Hollywood star. He has a "can-do", positivite attitude throughout most the film. He was excited for his first role in Darla Dimple's film, Little Arc Angel, but was disappointed when he finds out cats only got one line "meow". He decided to "jazz it up a bit," there for angering Darla, who found him as a threat to her Stardom. He found out the hard way that Hollywood doesn't care about his, nor any of his friends, talents just because they are animals.

Darla is CDD's main antagionist. She is one of Hollywoods biggest stars and is portrayed as 'lover of children and animals.' This is pretty much as far from Darla as you could get. She states several times that she hates animals, and is really a brat who loves the spotlight. She has a servant "Max" who does whatever she says. Her newest movie is 'Little Ark Angel.'

Wooly is an elderly elephant, who is really skilled at the piano. He wanted to write music for HollyWood movies, but instead they wanted him as their mascot. He was the one who informed Danny about their friends' broken dreams, and how Hollywood looks for "Talented people, not animals" and "The Spotlight will never be on fellows like you an me, and its foolish to think otherwise, Danny" He helped Danny remind them of why they came to HollyWood in the first place.
