JELLICLE CATS

I am about to embark on this Word Puzzle, and I am more clueless as to what to expect than on the Pokemon one. I know about Gummy Bears, Jelly Fish and Jellied Eels, Jellico Mountain and Jello Puddin', but I am wandering into unfamiliar territory. If you happen onto some roadkill on the Word Puzzle Highway, say "Hi", cuz that will be me.

LOL I thought I would ace this one and I did really well on this one with only 20 moves. One of the names threw me and cost me several moves to figure it out. I saw the title of the quiz and instantly knew what it referred to and started running down the list of Jellicle cats names in my head.

Now I would like to thank the editor that created this quiz for getting the Jellicle **** stuck in my head. LOL

Didn't want to spoil it for anyone who still doesn't know what the Jellicle cats refers too. :D

Ever read any TS Elliot?

Know any of Andrew Lloyd Webber's work?

Then you should know at least SOME of these!!

Wow that sucked. I mean I did, not the quiz. =)
Tuzilla--you'd really never heard of Jellicle Cats?? You must have either remembered once the puzzle started or you're the most awesome guesser ever!
I thought I was going to do great--wrote down all (12) of the names I could remember beforehand, and of course only one came up. Three I'd never heard of. Good quiz Sploofizz!

I was sooooo clueless, and just thankful that you can't loose points by doing a word puzzle. LOL!

I know what a Jellicle cat is and I still am way down on the list. I only remembered two of the names.

What a load of......Jelli what, never heard of it/them/they/whatever! Lowest score I've ever received from my favourite part of this site. Thought we were supposed to have fun while trying to build our scores, pitting ourselves against all others on this site.

Pleeeeese, when are we going to stop with these WordPuzzles that only some in this forum would ever have a clue about.

You can all have your go at me again, but I have to say, it is a bit rediculous to expect most to know what a flamin Jelli.... is!

Smoky, why should the Sploofus members only be subject to what YOU know about and enjoy???

Many of us come here to learn something new and I bet a lot of people did with this word puzzle. That's the beauty of having lots of different people bring their interests to the website. You're bound to find something you like and/or learn something new. And if you don't like what's on the site today, you come back tomorrow for something different.

You also forget that you're criticizing someone's hard work. I bet it's quite difficult to have to come up with new creative Word Puzzles that will challenge everyone. If the Word Puzzles were always about easy stuff we've heard of, then the cheaters would have a field day - and we already hear enough whining about them as it is.

Then you do a google search ahead of time and learn something new. If you didn't know what it was and/or didn't want to learn what it was, why did you even do the Word Puzzle? What's the sense in that?

Simple answer...because it was there. I did research it and found a bunch of good info before, like looking both ways before venturing into the road, I leapt forth. And being a pesky and wily rabbit (the luckiest sign of the Chinese Horoscope) I made it nicely to the other side.

I don't mind a kick to the proverbial 'balls' once in a while. It keeps me human. I can't be a goddess/machine/superheroine/jedi/know-it-all everyday!!!
I choose not to 'Google' and to see what I know in this little compartment surrounded by jelly...and obviously not Jelli!!! LOL

I find it quite easy to be a goddess/machine/whatchamacallit/jethro every day. Maybe I can give you some tips.

Because Jellicles are and Jellicles Do
Jellicles do and Jellicles would
Jellicles would and Jellicles can
Jellicles can and Jellicles do

I had that silly song in my head all day long.

And to counter Smoky - I LOVED this puzzle!! But then again, I love the show!

And we all say
Oh! Well I never was there ever
A cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffelees
(favorite number in the show!)

I swear, I'm naming my next cat Grizzabella if it is a girl and Mistoffelees if it is a boy.

I'm with citrusy on this one-i do not think it is "right" to google on the word puzzles,but if somebody does,so be it..I just do not like to do it.But then again,I would not subject my cat to a name like Grizzabella.That would be sorta inhumane. Martha

I remembered them from back years ago when I was doing ballet. We did a Cats (as in the broadway show) theme one year. My old dance teacher was Grizabella the Glamour Cat and the owner of the dance studio was Skimbleshanks the Railway Cat and another dance teacher was Old Deuteronomy. Since I was so young (like7-8) I was just a regular cat but the older students all had starring roles as the main cats in the show with their own little solos. Man that puzzle brought back some good memories.

and for the record, I don't care for Andrew Lloyd Webber. I think he stole every idea he ever presented from Mozart. I have opening night tickets in row 5 center for the new Lion King tour and will enjoy that, instead.
