Madkat is the name of a long deceased medieval jester who was replaced by a rival and imprisoned in a dungeon by the king, queen and knight of his time. While imprisoned, he vowed revenge. For unexplained reasons, Madkat’s spirit came to possess a Kat-in-the-Box which bore his likeness. Over the centuries, this Kat-in-the-Box came into the possession of the shopkeeper at Katzmer’s Curios, an antique shop.Present day comedian Lenny Ringtail found the Kat-in-the-Box after escaping from the Megakat Asylum for the Insane and Katatonic when he broke into the antique shop to seek a hiding place from the Enforcers.
