Keyboard Cat is a old 2007 internet meme. It had a 55 Second video on the popular video sharing platform YouTube uploaded on June 7th 2007 [1]. It was featured in the 2014 Michael Bay movie TMNT.

Information

The video was filmed in 1984. Fatso was being controlled by his owner Charlie Schmidt and was pretending to press the keys. In 1987, Fatso died of an unknown cause but Charlie later got a new cat called "Bento", which he used to make new Keyboard Cat videos. Unfortunately, Bento died in 2018. The Minecraft splash text saying "play him off, keyboard cat" is also a reference to this old internet meme.

Unknowningly, keyboard cat appears in Fish Hooks in cartoon form.
