Figaro is Geppetto's mischievous pet kitten in Pinocchio. He later appears as Minnie Mouse's pet kitten in the Classic Disney Shorts, as well as the TV series House of Mouse and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Originally intending Figaro as a minor character in Disney Animated Canon feature film Pinocchio, Walt Disney took note of the cat's popularity and placed him in three shorts of his own. Figaro often acted as a rival of Pluto the Pup.
Figaro and Cleo (one of Figaro's own three shorts)
Bath Day (one of Figaro's own three shorts)
Figaro and Frankie (one of Figaro's own three shorts)
