Watching Mistoffelees!

We've all seen the video, right? Probably about a hundred times... *grins* Well, if you really like me, then print this out or whatever & then watch the video & look for me!!

Note: I think I need to explain something. Stand in front of your television set & look at it. Hold out your arms to both sides. When I say "he's on the right", I mean shake your right hand & he's on that side. It's just the opposite for the left. And to me, front is closest to the camera. If I say he's in the front, he's close to the camera, and in the back is back there by the tire & car.
Now to put this in theatre terms: When I say right I mean "stage left" & when I say left I mean "stage right". (All of you theatre people know this, but for those people that don't: Stage left is when you're standing ON the stage looking out to the audience and off to your left-hand side. Stage right is just the opposite. Sort of like when you stand on home plate in baseball & look at the outfield -- left field is to your left hand side & right field is the other way. Same concept.)

Now that we've got that cleared up, let's get to the good stuff!

"Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats"

1. During "The pied piper's assistant": Yeah, that's him singing!
2. "...Pharoah's commissioned the Sphinx": You can see his tail, part of his right leg, and his, umm, tush. :)
3. Right after Cassandra sings about the Sphinx, he's on the screen next. At first he's looking to his right (at Cassandra) & then he looks at the camera. Adorable!
4. "Jellicle Cats": He's on the screen in the front for just a split-second.
5. During this part (where they're all on stage singing & dancing) of the song he pretty much stays in the front right area, on screen.
6. During the trapeze part, he's in the front on the right.
7. When they're all together lined up, he's in the front row - watch him, he makes some really cute movements.

16. "...more than one cat...": Another close-up!
17. " will never guess...": right side.

During Victoria's solo

1. While she's dancing, he's in the pipe off to the left watching her.
2. When she's folded together, he runs out and does that cute thing with his arms & she straightens out. (You have to see it to understand) Then he runs his hands down her.

"Jellicle Ball"
1. Sings the first 6 lines of "Jellicle Ball"
2. When they're in the group, while Munkustrap's in the front singing, he can be seen over his left arm.
3. When they do that thing where they move their hands in tight circles, he's opposite Victoria.
4. Then, when they move back out, you can see him over Munkustrap's left shoulder & behind his head.

"Gumbie Cat"

1. "I have a Gumbie Cat...": He's next to Munkustrap, thinking Munkustrap might sing about him.
2. "Her name is Jennyanydots": He sits down ashamedly & the kittens sort of tease him. He's to the left, kittens to the right.

4. "..beneath the stair..": he's in center stage
5. "steps": Munkustrap points to Misto & he runs to the car
6. "sits...": He's on the trunk of the car & opens it. While the trunk is still opening, watch him on top, he's so cute! He peers over the edge, holding on, then slides off.
7. I can't seem to find Misto as a cockroach.

"Rum Tum Tugger"

3. "": appears by BJ & bows.
4. "Bustopher Jones in white spats": Slides & pulls BJ's tail - so cute!!! Don't you just want to take him home?
5. Then he crawls towards the big top hat & stands to the lefthand side of it.
6. He stands left of BJ during BJ's whole little singing part. Watch his face during "rice pudding"- it's so adorable! He licks his lips...
7. Watch when BJ is falling backwards- At first Misto has his back turned, but then he turns around w/a cute look of surprise. Then, when BJ gets up, Misto rushes after him so he doesn't go over the edge.
8. "...well-preserved...": Looks like he's following BJ.
9. Okay, now he IS following BJ
10. While BJ is lining up his imaginary golf shot w/his spoon, Misto is behind him, watching.
11. Right after "Toodlepip!", Misto is to the left of him. When the alarm thing sounds & the lights go down, watch him, he's freaking out. It's really cute, and then he's laying down, like he's trying to hide.

"Mungojerrie & Rumpleteazer"

1. At the end, after they do their part & they're trying to get away. Misto is to the right, and then he steps up & reaches his arm out to block their path. I just love the way he moves his body...

"Old Deuteronomy"

1. He's in the front, crawling, and he says "Old Deuteronomy." It's sort of in a blue light, I love how he cat-walks!

14. He's in the whole next Toms scene a whole bunch, just watch the whole thing - it's worth it. 15. When they do the hip shake thing - he's on the wrong beat! That's probably the only thing he does wrong the whole time.

21. After the mating dance, he comes up right after Tantomile & Coricopat, in the front

22. He's shown on screen, arms out, shaking his head from side to side with a smile on his face
23. Stays on the front right, just watch there.
24. When the music changes, he's in the front right again
25. He's in the back right now, but when they move forward he comes around to the front right. He's on screen much of the time right after this.
26. He's on the screen for about 2 seconds doing this hip thing - I love it!
27. WHen they all jump, he's in the front right, he looks like he's about to slide off the stage.

"Moments of Happiness"

1. "...but...": you can see his face behind Munkustrap
2. "Moon...": Behind Munkustrap now.

2. "Victoria reigned...": Look at them in the back, they're so cute! It looks like he's tickling her?

"Skimble" & "Macavity"... and the fight

Nowhere to be found - probably offstage getting ready for "Mr. Mistoffelees".

"Mr. Mistoffelees"

1. Must I say any more? The whole thing is about him... He has a different tail - this one is shorter & all black. He also has the sparkly stuff on, and the gloves. Oh, and no leg or arm warmers. :( I personally like him better BEFORE the change...

"Memory" & the rest of the video

1. "dawn..": next to Alonzo
2. "Memory": behind, on the tire yet again, you can see him outfit sparkling.
3. Pretty much for the rest of the time, you don't see him much. There is one shot though w/him & Victoria at the end, she's got her arms around his neck - adorable!
