In a dystopian future ruled by kitten-overlords, Evans Mew struggles to make television that inspires his fellow kittizens without also getting himself executed.
KITTEN KABOODLE is a dystopian sci-fi comedy, set in a future where kittens have destroyed humanity and become the dominant life form on the planet. In Kittopia, EMPEROR CUTIE keeps the populace docile through intentionally dumb cat videos and constant video surveillance. When EVANS MEW is promoted to Head of Propaganda, he starts off excited to make all of the shows his fellow kittizens need to inspire them to greatness! But he soon realizes that every action he takes, no matter how well-intentioned, can throw Kittopia and his own life into turmoil. Create movies that are too inspiring, and kittens start rebelling. If they’re not inspired enough, the innocent kittizens are helpless against the Emperor’s nefarious whims and secret police of adorable bullies. At this rate, it won’t take long for the Emperor to realize that the person behind all his new woes is Evans himself!
