Black Cat Detective (also known as Hei Mao Jing Zhang, or, Cpt. Black, or 黑猫警长) is a Chinese Animated Children's television show of the mid 80's (1984-1987), Beloved by children and adults alike. The show largely consists of Hei Mao kicking ass and taking names. Hei Mao is not unlike Dirty Harry, except that instead of being a cop who is committed to justice but not the rules, he's committed to justice in a world that has no rules. The other most frequent character seems to be known only as "Monoear", a mouse with a bandage on his head. The mice, on the whole, are thieving, evil, dirty and greedy. The show is quite different from American shows, because characters, both good and bad, frequently get Killed Off for Real. A couple of baby animals get eaten alive by an eagle, let's see... Oh yeah, he has a totally Badass Crew of other cats and pigeons.

The plot progression usually looks like this:

1. Mice commit crime. (Let's get drunk and steal some beets!)

2. Cats intervene (All right, Popeye's here! get your hands on your heads, get off the bar, and get on the wall!)

3. Mice Run Away (Not sure we thought this through.)

4. Hei Mao Chases them down. (Let us board our flying motorcycles which we can afford thanks to fabulous one-party system and gumption.)

5. Those who resist get beaten with a club. (Which doubles as a taser.)

6. Those who flee get shot. (And there is always blood.)

7. Signature tune. (Oh oh oh, something Hei Mao Jing Zhang, Thanks for protecting our forest, blah blah blah.)
