Hamweenie the cat knows exactly what he wants, thank you very much. What some would call a posh existence is not at all up to Hamweenie’s liking, and he’s determined to do something about it. His quest for fame and adoration leads him to escape and join the circus, where he has some hilariously misinterpreted encounters with the residents of New York City and, later, the animals in the circus troupe. Eventually, Hamweenie’s five minutes of fame pass and he is once again in captivity. The change of venue does not stop Hamweenie though, and he continues to perform—right in his own living room.
