Original, Terrifying ‘Keyboard Cat’ Video Unearthed

Original Keyboard cat

Keyboard Cat has been one of the Internet’s most enduring memes since it came into prominence in 2009.

The now famous video of a cat playing a jaunty keyboard tune was actually recorded in 1984, and only became popular after it was uploaded onto YouTube many years later.

But it turns out the origins of keyboard cat may stretch back to the ’50s, when a organ-playing feline was featured on the long-forgotten ‘Andy’s Gang‘ kids’ show.

Be forewarned, this clip is fairly terrifying, particularly considering it was intended as children’s programming. Check out vintage Keyboard Cat, and the far less creepy web phenomenon it may have spawned, below
