Jetpack Cat

Jetpack Cat is a concept character from the video game Overwatch that was never a part of Overwatch. However, as a concept, he was quite popular. Game director Jeff Kaplan talked about why Jetpack Cat never got off the ground during a panel at BlizzCon.
“We tried a robot monkey. We tried a crocodile!” said Tsang. That led to Jetpack Cat, who—despite being one of the most popular early hero designs at Blizzard—was scrapped because, Kaplan explained, it was “not Overwatch at this point.” A gorilla scientist from the moon, however, was fine.
But Jetpack Cat was not forgotten. YouTuber To Binge gives him an origin story in this fan film. Hey, if Jetpack Cat doesn't fit into the Overwatch world, maybe he can have his own cartoon series. Surely I'm not the only one who thinks that could work. (via Metafilter)
