Ode to Spot

In the TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation, the android Data had a cat named Spot. This was ridiculous on its face, that a there would be a cat on a starship, and that the only person attached to the cat would be an android. But Spot was usually a comic foil, allowing Data to show some awkward attempts at emotion. In this supercut by John DiMarco we see all of Spot's appearance. You can't help but notice that Spot is obviously a parade of different cats. It starts slow, but gets funnier toward the middle. Actor Brent Spiner has said more than once that Spot was the worst actor he had ever worked with. (via Laughing Squid)
