‘The Adventures of Puss in Boots’ is an American computer-animated web television series that airs on Netflix. The series first premiered on January 16, 2015. Fans might also be interested to know that it premiered on Boomerang UK on September 3, 2018.
The show stars a cartoon character called ‘Puss in Boots’, that is, literally a cat wearing a hat and boots and yes, the cat talks. For those unaware, Puss was introduced in the ‘Shrek’ franchise and its 2011 spin-off movie and is a work of DreamWorks Animation. Doug Langdale serves as the executive producer.
The series has garnered a strong fan following, which can be seen in the passion of those fighting for the show’s revival. It has also gained praise from critics with The New York Times saying, “[it]is nicely drawn, and San Lorenzo is populated with some appealingly odd young residents, human and otherwise”. They also said that the humor is “relatively sophisticated (you could write a psychological treatise on Dulcinea, who has modeled her life on a somewhat vacuous book of epigrams), but not so sophisticated that children will be left behind”.
The Adventures of Puss In Boots Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of ‘The Adventures of Puss In Boots’ is Puss in Boots (voiced by Eric Bauza), as the titular character, Dulcinea (voiced by Jayma Mays) who is a female cat serving as Puss’s love interest; Artephius/The Great Mage Sino (voiced by Paul Rugg) who is an elderly alchemist who acts as a mad scientist; Señora Zapata (voiced by Carla Jimenez), serving as the administrator of the town’s orphanage; Mayor Temeroso (voiced by Carlos Alazraqui), a big guy who likes to keep a low profile by hiding inside barrels; Pajuna (voiced by Laraine Newman), who is a Highland cow and the owner of the local cantina, Toby (voiced by Joshua Rush), is an orphan who idolizes Puss.
Other important characters include Vina (voiced by Grey Griffin), who is another older orphan who makes up facts and sometimes steps into Puss’s personal space. Kid Pickles (voiced by Candi Milo), is a “Runyonesque” 11-year-old who likes pickles; Esme (voiced by Ariebella Makana), is a 5-year-old girl who is adorable, to say the least. This is bolstered by the presence of a strong supporting cast which includes the likes of Danny Trejo in the role of El Moco, a bandit king who is foiled in most episodes.
If there is an upcoming season, if it happens, we hope to see most of the main characters return and maybe the show can throw in some new characters too, to keep things interesting and the adventures going for our beloved Puss.
