The Greaser Dogs
Those three rambunctious dogs that chase CatDog to every end of the world, because in their rulebook: "Anything worse than a CAT, is a dog attached to a CAT!"
Greaser Dogs -- Clifford Maurice Feltbottom
Blood type: A
Likes: Poundin' CatDog, taking his ballet classes -- though ashamed of it.
Dislikes: CatDog, people who try to be smarter than him, and all cats (except the female ones, for *some* reason...)
Qualities: His softer side, yet lack of wit as a bully.
Background: As the leader of the Greaser Dogs, pummeling 'CatButt' into next week is what Cliff does best, and enjoys most with his friends Lube and Shriek. He's very short-tempered, and speaks with a Brooklyn-esque accent similiar to Winslow's, though he's not as shrewd or smart as Winslow can be. Cliff, beyond the bullies-never-cry-or-squeal exterior, is actually the sensitive fellow that seeks consoling in an old teddy bear he tends to keep under his jacket... juuuust in case. He has a second job aside from being the Greaser leader; he works at a Nearburg local school as a gym teacher (he takes after his father with this job, who was also a gym teacher). A known relative of Cliff's is his nephew, Biff (appears in "Back to School"), who takes alot of his uncle Cliffy's characteristics.
First appearance: 'Dog Gone'
Jan's thoughts: I had a very sweet friend once who actually had a crush on Cliff, and I can understand why. Cliff is the epitome of bullies we all love to hate, and in some cases hate to love! C'mon, a biiiig, bad bully with a teddy bear?! Sweet. He may be a CatDog-hating ignoramus, but you gotta love him!
Greaser Dogs -- Lube (real name: Ignatius Catfield McDog)
Blood type: O
Likes: His friends (even CatDog), joining in the daily CatDog pound-fest.
Dislikes: Anything his friends don't like.
Qualities: His unwaivering loyalty.
Background: It shows in his speech and actions that Lube is the slowest of the group. His blank looks and how he forgets what he's saying certainly express his personality as well. He is the most loyal of the Greasers -- once he became super-loyal to Cat for pulling a tick off his foot. The Greasers had to even try to hatch a plan to get Lube back in the gang ["All You Need is Lube"]. Lube works as a mechanic in a local gas station. Lube also has a cute little nephew as well, Bartholomew. "Bart", however, is barely anything like his uncle Lube: he has a formal accent, and is a boy genius. In the "The Great Parent Mystery", we see some more of Lube's family, i.e. a buncha hillbillies from Yokelburg. His mother is the only feline (!!!) in the family, Pussycat Catfield; his father, HoundDog McDog; and one sister, Ellie Mae Sue... a "hillbilly beauty". (Believe me, she's no Beverly Hillbillies Ellie Mae Sue!) Lube has quite the interesting family. ^.^
First appearance: 'Dog Gone' (he looked completely different the first time we saw him: his hair was spiked, his fur all shaggy, no whites in his eyes, and his jacket was orange. In the next episode he looks the way he does today.)
Jan's thoughts: Yes, people. Lube's real name is Ignatius. (discovered in "The End"! Oooh, how embarrassing-- learning your real name during the Apocalypse!) I can proudly say I don't see Lube as totally stupid, just the kind that are smart in other aspects. He has this in common with Dog. :) Lube hardly recognized his own parents in the movie, but has been seen speaking perfect Spanish before. He's mysterious in some way, but you can't not like him, eh?
Greaser Dogs -- Shriek Dubois
Blood type: A
Likes: Dog (very very much!), being herself, and beating the daylights out of Cat whenever she can.
Dislikes: Cat, being known as a boy ("I *AM* A GIRL!"), and... wearing a dress or expressing femininity.
Qualities: Her voice, and how she pines for Dog.
Background: Shriek is the tomboy, and at the same time, bad girl. She's even mistaken for a boy on many occasions. In the episode 'Rich Shriek, Poor Shriek', we discover Shriek's last name, and that she was a debutante from a rich French family. She doesn't care at all about her family's fortune, and would rather live in the broken-down home where the Greasers reside so she can be with her friends. The people she cares about, and accomplishing her own goals (such as becoming a champion ice skater one time) are what really matter to her. Usually shown as gung-ho (overdoing the gung-ho part), her emotional side often comes out in Dog's presence or in a difficult situation; but of course Shriek will be that fiesty Greaser girl-ay that we love. The tough-girl Dubois blood spreads a bit as she also has another relative, a niece named Squeak who's just as loud and screachy as her aunt.
First appearance: 'Dog Gone'
Jan's thoughts: Shriek is AWESOME. At the same time she seems easy to understand, she's really complicated. She can be mean, then the next minute, a pretty little lady in a dress! (when being taught etiquette: "ELLO! Enchanted to meet ya!!") I love the two sides to her. And when she gets all tender and moony over Dog? PRECIOUS. I don't know if this is a good thing or not, but I often have a lot in common with her...
and because he counts as a Greaser-wannabe:
Eddie "The Pulverizer" Squirrel
Age: obviously younger than the Greasers
Blood type: O
Likes: Doing anything he can to join the Greaser Dogs.
Dislikes: Anything the Greasers don't like.
Qualities: His hyperactive attitude
Background: "Heya, Cliff, what'cha guys doin'?!" asks Eddie, or should we say "The Pulverizer". Cliff is this kid's idol. You can see it by the way Eddie tries to be all tough and violent, and even notice the fake red sideburns (a'la Cliff's) taped to the sides of his head. He's always the extra-loyal (yes, even moreso than Lube) squirrel that he is to constantly attempt to join the Greasers. But why won't they let him in, you ask? Well, he can be so loyal and active that he can be just painfully annoying, and the number one rule in the "Greaser Rulebook" is that you must be a DOG. Alas, Eddie is not a dog, as anyone can very well see. Aw. But that doesn't seem to matter to him much, as he just continues trying and trying to hang out with his pals.
First appearance: 'SquirrelDog'
Jan's thoughts: Eddie's cute. He sorta reminds me of an old friend of mine's little annoying brother -- the kid would do anything to join in the fun that we'd share. Though, Eddie was much more loyal, loveable- and even tolerable- than he was. :)
