I was just downstairs finishing up some lunch when Simon the cat jumped off the futon and sat in front of the glowing pellet stove. He yawned and I said, “Oh look at him, he just roared like a wildcat.”
Now don’t laugh, but that got me thinking. It got me thinking of those old sneakers called “Wildcats” by Buster Brown. Does anyone remember them? I wanted them so bad you wouldn’t believe it.
I remember this one commercial where some kids were running through the woods and towards the end, one of them put a shoe up on a piece of wood. Right then, I heard that famous…what is it…a roar, meow? Man, I wanted a pair of those sneakers.
Here’s a commercial I found for Wildcats. It’s not the one I was talking about, but it has plenty of sound effects.
