Interactive game of cat and mouse.
A cat burglar, literally translated as “cat burglar,” is a particularly skilled thief: he climbs gutters and slips quietly and unseen through unsuspecting windows. Rowdy, the eponymous cat thief in the Netflix show of the same name, wants to get into the museum. Peanut, a dog in a museum assistant’s uniform, confronts him.
The cat and the dog chase, chase and fight each other through entire departments of the museum, with the appropriate props: swords and armor, dinosaur bones, the linen bandages of Egyptian mummies and, of course, lots of dynamite. The special thing about Cat Burglar: Spectators can participate in the interactive show.
The spectator becomes a player.
When things get hot between riot and peanuts, the viewer can jump right into the action by answering quiz questions with a click of the mouse or the arrow key on the remote. They are not particularly difficult, but the response time is short and the wrong answers directly affect the action. The spectator becomes a player who helps the cartoon cat to enter.
A tour of Burglar Cat takes about fifteen minutes; The cartoon consists of a total of 90 minutes of material, which can be viewed in a different order depending on the test result.
